Paint Options

Durabak and Ultra Tuff are two paints on the market that aren't mentioned much. Both of these are one-part polyurethane acrylics that have a rubber crumb nonskid already in them. The websites for these products claim that they can be spayed, bushed, or rolled on and are water-based for easy cleanup. They are also purported to be environmentally safe,UV resistant, and stabilized chemically to remain resistant and flexible. I'll be painting my topsides soon and was wondering if any of your staff has knowledge of these two products and how they may compare to the other popular epoxies and polyies.

SailNet responds:
Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no one on our staff has had any experience with the particular paints that you mention. We still may be able to help you though. Why not post your query on one of SailNet's Message Boards or e-mail Discussion Lists? Both of these areas are very active portions of our website and you might just find a sailor out there who has had some experience with Durabak or Ultra Tuff.

To use the Message Boards, just log on to SailNet's homepage and look at the items on the left-hand rail. Listed under "Members' Center" you'll find "Message Board" as an option. Click on that and it will take you to the grouping of message boards that we support. We recommend you post your question on the "Gear and Maintenance" board.

To find the e-mail discussion lists, just go to the homepage and the same list of options, but click on "Join E-Mail Lists" and that will take you to an alphabetized index page. From there you'll probably have the most success by clicking on "L" for the Liveaboard List. Here's hoping that you'll get some information in this fashion.
