Yeah I actually saw a couple of guys talking about using that stuff on their hulls. They say it worked.

But, judging by the black spraypaint I used on just the castings (it took 3 cans for 4 coats just on those 6 pieces!) - it would take a few cases of cans for both hulls. Then you have to deal with the scratches.

The numbers and durability seem to keep pointing to the gelcoat. One and done.
