I love bule on topside!

Is awlgrip a two part system? If not how does it compare to the two part Polyurethanes?

How many coats are necessary?

I looked it up and ignore my previous question. Awlgrip is a two part.

I'd still like to know how many coats are required? What's the min. required for a simple white?

And can it be touched up later if it gets banged up?

yes its a 2 part pint with a 2 coat min, we put on 3 coats, and oly used a little over a half gallon of color base. The paint can either be sprayed or rolled and tipped. we sprayted cause you can do wet on wet coats with no sanding in between. Most consider Awlgrip the premium top of the line paint for boats, its a very hard paint. The down fall is that it can't really be wet sanded and then touched up and buffed out, but they make a paint called Awlcraft 2000 that lends its self to touching up more than regular awlgrip. But its not as hard and won't retain its color and gloss as long.

How much time do you wait between coats?

If standard awlgrip can't be sanded how will you do touchups in the future. There must be some way.

And how do you maintain it? Waxing alone?

DM... I used awlgrip2000 on my hull because the orignal awlgrip in dark colors was also prone to cracking in high heat tropical environments. You can touch it up by taping off the damaged areas and wet sanding then re-applying new paint then buffing out to match the rest of the boat. There ARE differences in batches between the SAME color paint so it is important to save some of your original paint for future use.

45min to 1hr between coats. and DON'T WAX AWLGRIP awlgrip will take more of a beating than you are thinking it will, but touch up are not easily made, I plan to paint any scratches with a fine tip brush, but overall i plan to spend more time sailing then worrying about fixing a scratch here and there.

Columbia...here's a tip for after you're done with your beautiful paint job. Use Awlwash to clean the boat rather than anything else. Then...when you'd like to wax but can't...use 3M Finesse-IT which restores the gloss fully without the clouding that wax causes.

Finesse it is a fine product for restoring gloss. Scratches can be compounded out with something like perfect-it, followed by finesse-it. You can sort of wax awlgrip though. Awlcare is a polymer type coating that really does work well to protect your paint. it is expensive but worth it and a bottle will last for many applications. We use it to protect the Awlgrip on the entire topsides and superstructure of the big boat and it makes a huge difference to how it looks and how easy it is to clean.
