Laminate and new sink is the better way all around
The faux granite works, but requires a fair bit of practice to get the right look.
Also, it is normally a rough finish when complete that will require a top coat of some clear finish to make it smooth enough to keep clean easily. (or a good sanding that may totally trash the look you've tried to acheive)
A search on faux granite paint should turn up a few methods, and possibly suppliers.

I was expecting to do the laminate and new sink route but was at a home and garden expo and several stands were promoting this type of all over coating. Their brochure pics look good BUT they would wouldn't they.
I was hoping to find someone who had used it in a marine environment.

Refinishing a fibreglass galley worktop and sink.
We have looked at a couple of boats where the galley worktop and sink[s] are one piece fibreglass mouldings and are badly scratched chipped and discolored.
I guess I could fill and paint with 2 pack polyurethane but I have seen ads for granite look refinishing possibly with an epoxy paint.
Has anyone tried to do this. If so was it successful and what product or organisation was used.
