I'd agree that using it on the topsides may be a big mistake...especially if the MFG says it is past its usable shelf life. You would end up repainted far sooner if it fails than you would if you had used new paint. Using it on the dinghy is not as big a risk... as there is far less prep work then.
Also, if you're going to be using it on your boat, which appears to be a steel boat, the prepwork is a major PITA, and having to do it prematurely is something you'll probably want to avoid.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
