Thanks sloop.

You're right about the cost. The gelcoat was $110. I ended up spending roughly $175 on 5 quarts of paint (using 4.25 quarts).

My hunch is that rolling the gelcoat wouldn't have given me as nice a finish as rolling the paint. So I'm happy with that finish. It rocks. But, I'll definitely have regrets if this paint lasts less than 5 years.
