Where to buy Interlux Perfection?

I am considering repainting my hull in the spring (above the water line) and am wondering where is a good (cheap) place to buy Interlux Perfection? Conversely, would anyone recommend another product that is as good or better than Perfection for around the same price.

Defender had about he best price BUT it depends on shipping

I was able to get a good price match deal local as its a stock item around here

There is a great deal more cost involved by the time you get the correct primers and solvents SO be sure to price out the total picture

Another thing I wonder about is if anyone has seen or done a comparison between topside paints, ie. perfection awlgrip etc. I can roll and tip it on but also have a number of friends who could spray it for me. I want the best Job for the money

awl products are awesome, I have had cars and boats, and trained in an airplane that was done with awlgrip...but pricey for materials and are unforgiving of surface prep...if done right will last years..and still be beautiful.

until they get dinged or scraped...then the work comes in. I am told the newer paints can be blended and repaired, but cost are high to do so.

The sprayed jobs are almost always more consistent, if you can do that. FOr most DIYers, roll and tip and they say perfection is one of the best. I am still a rookie on the roll and tip, but my dinghy came out very nice..and I did it.

all the best...

What I am interested in is best bang for the buck, Cost, longevity, repairability etc. It will get scrapes and dings so I need to be able to touch that up.

I don't mind hyping them again since they pay for our playground...you really should check out Marine.com as you shop. I didn't see Interlux Perfection on their list (other Interlux and Awlgrip stuff) - but I have found that their prices are typically very competitive with other sites.

Just sayin'.

ALL the paint comes from the same BIG company AKZO with marketing taking over in different countrys as to how it gets to you

In the US Perfection is sold as a roll and tip for the most part with Awlgrip being aimed at the spray market

If you look at a other countrys the full line of solvents to spray perfection are sold not jsut a brush or spray

Awlgrip and Interlux are two different companies. I painted my C-27 Interlux, my current is painted with Awlgrip. Poster stating the differences in terms of how it is marketed and applied s correct. But still two different entities two different products. Mega yacht owners still do touch ups to awlgrip by roll and tip... Kinda like saying that Dupont automotive paints are the same thing as PPG... they are not.
