Gary-

I am pretty sure that Interlux Perfection should be fine on an aluminum spar. You will probably need to coat the aluminum with a good primer before applying the paint.

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.

Actually the website has complete instructions for doing an aluminum mast. Quite lot of prep involved. Here:

I now starting on a O'Day 22 recovery on a trailer. In the past my wife and I did a Morgan 416, a Morgan 300 and a Westerly Cirus. I was told after screwing up the Westerly with a hand paint job, to find out if the area, freeboards, decks..anything fiberglass could be brought back by a four step decison, if I could not afford a professional job. 1. Start with the stern, it is the easiest. 2. Don't paint until you wet sand, it don't matter the color, since if it don't work, you are going to paint it anyway, but I save big bucks on a Navy freeboards as well as just gel. 3. Lay on the wax, a professional wax, not off the rack. Go to a boat yard and find the old cans in the trash used for the most expensive boat on the hard. 4. If you like the results, great. If no, then paint away.

The guys I hung with in yards told me many times, it was a waste of money to paint some boats. Those that needed it were apparent. Besides, as one said, everyone wants a bigger boat, someday. Save the $$ for equipment that you can pull off and transplant on the next boat. If you don't do a professional job, a bush and roller in two years will need the same again.
