I found a whole bunch of really good reviews so I thought it was worth a shot, furthermore weighing in at almost 3000 lbs she could stand to loose a pound or two eating some Tofu shouldn't hurt.

It is just fiber glass no gel...
I would advise against using the latex. When the boat "sweats" it will stain. If you can get the old paint all off - rough up your surface a bit - even a wire brush will do - and roll on a high quality oil based paint - Petit makes some good ones - any of the gloss Z-Spars will work - and you can clean them. Roll it on with a roller soft enough to conform to the roughness of the fiberglass. Have rags and mineral spirits handy to wipe up the drips before they dry. Finish the tight places the roller won't reach with a brush.

Because it's on fiberglass, it's probably too rough to sand effectively for a second coat. If you time it well, when it sets up enough you can apply a second coat without sanding. Depending on temperature it should be somewhere between one hour and four. The first coat should be sticky to the touch but not come off on your finger. That well you'll get a "Chemical" bond. (Sanding gives a mechanical bond).

Use plenty of ventilation. Reward yourself with a libation of your choice when the job is finished. Maybe two.

Have to go, Saltwater Suzi just informed me that dinner is served.

John (61 PE): Everybody has an opinion, eh? Scroll down to the advise the pro gave you (Capt Larry) and start from there.
Good luck!

Painting interior

Let me add another element to the discussion. I need to repaint the cuddy of my '68 Daysailor. West recommends Petti Dura-White - a latex. The current paint has a blue streaks to hide the imperfections. Does anyone know of an additive - color chips or flakes - that can be added to the paint to recreated the look and hide the imperfections?

Goto any artist / crafts related store - you can metallic chips and other powder that you can mix into it do give that effect...

A flocking gun is good at hiding imperfections. Or ceiling popcorn. (UGH!)

Ah, seriously though...check out Martha Stewart's stuff, or any of the big box stores' paint departments, there are all sorts of fairly easy ways to add fake texture and effects with paints these days, it all depends on how crazy you want to go. They should work just as well with "marine" paints.

Marine "epoxy" and "urethane" based paints are pricey--but they hold up way better than anything else, if you've done a good prep job so they can bond well.

Casy recommends exterior house trim paint, an alkyd enamel, which translates out to oil-based house trim paint. I did my boat with it, and prep is everything, to good effect.
