Re: Why paint instead of gelcoat?
For those of you that are in favor of gel coat over paint, do you feel the same for darker colors?
Let's face it, everyone scratches their boat. Some keep them insignificant enough, they aren't noticeable from 10 feet away. Others are less fortunate. I had a neighbor with a dark blue gelcoat hull that must have gotten into a dock or some nasty rubbing on a mooring or something bad to the front of her hull. It was a 4 x 4 foot set of serious scratches. It seemed like there was virtually nothing they could do to help. Paint, particularly acrylic, can be repaired. Even the new Alexseal LP paint, claims it can be repaired.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
