What type of paint to use?

I'm planning on painting the deck and hull of my 22' Pearson, and wondering what brand of paint to use. I know I want to use a 2 part poly, so it's now a question of Interlux, or Awlgrip. Is the Interlux product just a good and will hold up over time?

Both are Akzo-Noble. Awlgrip is for spraying, Interlux is for brushing. No, it is not quite that simple, but close. You probably want Interlux Perfection.

You might want to keep it simple with one step poly ( such as West Marine top side enamel) to roll and tip, then Interlux non skid deck paint for the topsides. Remember it's a Pearson 22, not a Hinkley 50. Other than your personal delight, it's not going to increase in value and more maintenance is less sailing.

The one part poly (West, Brightside) will not wear like Perfection and will need re-doing years sooner. The prep is about the same as far as time goes (90% of the job) and the finish will be tougher with the 2 part Perfection. Costs a bit more. It won't increase the value but will mean more years between paint jobs. If you use Perfection you can overcoat with 1 part down the road but 2 part can't be used over 1 part.

Interlux Deckcote is great for the non skid areas of the deck but I'd want the topsides (hull) shiny.
