Two-part topsides paints

Thanks sailingdog: I looked for halekai's prior posts, couldn't find them yesterday but got lucky today. By far the most informative so far, and I think I am now more inclined towards the acrylic two-parts for their easier patchability. (I don't seem to be able to avoid getting the odd scratch and nick!) I will look forward to anything further halekai wants to add. Happy New Year! Paich

sailingdog Paich-

Awlcraft 2000 is probably the paint you're thinking of. It is also a two-part linear polyureathane paint. Halekai will probably respond to your question in a bit.

Chipping and scratching

First time posting here. I was pleased to see this discussion, as I am thinking about repainting my Bristol 40 yawl. Was last done in about 1995, I would guess. I had assumed that Awlgrip was the way to go, but another Bristol owner noted the difficulty of touching up nicks and scratches and said he would not be using awlgrip for this reason. I had another boat that was awlgripped and I tried to use a touch-up kit on some scratches and it looked awful. So my question is, is there a two-part high gloss, high abrasion resistance finish that can be touched up? I was hoping maybe this was what "awlcraft" was; but no clear indication. Indeed, no one seems to want to talk about this problem, except for a woman who posted on a Hatteras net and raised the question. Any thoughts? Thanks, Paich

k1vsk Even dirty, in my opinion, dark blue is still the best looking color followed closely by dark green or any dark color.
