Re: Why paint instead of gelcoat?

Some day you will probably sell your boat.

Considerations:
If today you were buying a boat and had the choice between a 'painted' hull and well sprayed out re-gelcoated hull; and, all other aspects of the two boats were dead on equal .... which would be your choice to buy?

Once you 'paint' a boat, youre eventually going to be 'repainting' that hull for the rest of the days that you own that boat.

Gelcoat 'kicking' in a spray gun ... not a probem. Get a Gel gun with a DISPOSABLE pot. If the gel 'kicks' in the gun, throw the paint pot away and install a new POT.
