I think you would be better off with Emeron on the hull because if it gets chipped you can sand and repair that area. Algrip is not very forgiving paint it is very brittle and hard to feather and touch up. Also I think you will find that Interlux makes a white bottom paint I THINK? I have seen it and it looks great just make sure it is trailerabul bottom paint.

The Interlux is Trilux 33 but it says nothing of trailer applications. I looked further and Pettit makes a bright white for trailer use paint called Vivid $149.99 gal at West Marine or cheeper if you shop around.

I''ve heard of boats with Awlgrip that after a long passage on one tack, have had serious failure on the side that was in salt water.

Two Part Polyurethane coatings such as Interlux Interthane Plus are not designed for under water applications. I imagine that Awlgrip and Emron would be no different.

The paint will fail if left in the water long enough. You can contact Interlux using the contact numbers on www.yachtpaint.com to conform the best solution using their products. I am sure other manufacturers such as US Paint will also have contact numbers so that you can ask about Awlgrip, etc...

Yup! I learned this the hard way.

You can check with each paint manufacturer that their topside coatings will not last long when immersed for long periods of time such as on a long tern constant heel. NO such topside paint will last but a few days when immersed... but plain old alkyd enamel will last the longest.
.... Been there, T shirt. Will never ever ever again paint a boat''s topsides.

You can simply remove topside paint by wetting towels, covering with sealed saran wrap, etc. .... no need for strippers, etc. Paint just falls off after a 2 week soak!
