Re: Choosing Topside Paint Problem
I think what I would do is paint a new, slightly wider, white stripe over where the old one was! The issue is paint compatibility. Awlgrip, two-part polyurethane, and one part, do not play well together. Do you know what the PO used for the white stripe?
The dark green is not gel coat, it's probably Awlgrip if it's original to the boat. In that case, the dark blue stuff should be Awlgrip too, otherwise that should have fallen off too.
