Petit topside paint

I havent heard of any pros or cons regarding Petit topside paints. Are there any opinions out there regarding how it compares with interlux? imron etc. I intend to roll and tip. I have a burgundy colored gelcoat and would like a similar colored paint however I didnt see it in interlux.

Which is best is probably going to be a case of personal preference.
Petit, Interlux, Sterling, West Marine Sea Gloss @ $35 a qt. I have heard good about all of them. (When put on properly)

I have used both Petit and Interlux. They are very similiar but I tend to think I was able to get a better finish with the Petit, it seems to level out better.

Last spring I was painting my waterline with Interlux and and a friend beside me was painting his entire hull with Petit. Both were very dark blue. His finish was definately better than mine. Of course maybe he was a better painter.

We both use roll and tip.
