Probably. I've beat the snot out of Brightsides on several boats and it's held up pretty well.

bljones I painted our boat with Brightside last spring. I have been pleased with the results. Very forgiving paint that survived lift straps with no damage. Keep in mind that it does take time to fully cure and harden, so if you plan to splash shortly after painting, make sure the yard crew knows to wrap the lift straps in plastic before lifting.

Barquito I used the same product on topsides and deck. I didn't thin enough on the topsides and ended up with some brush streaks. However, it still looked good. The deck looked good, but, got a bit beat-up. I think next boat I might use 2 part on the deck.

sailingdog Second what Tommays has said about durability versus how forgiving the paint is.

Just remember that 99% of the success of any paint job is the surface preparation and priming. If you've slacked on that, it don't much matter what you put on top.

tommays 1 part paint is much more forgiving at the cost of durability

I am still in the epoxy primer phase and have to say its a PITA to lay down a good coat of paint on a 30' boat with two part paint BUT i have stuff i spilled on the work floor two years ago that is pretty bullet proof compared to 1 part

I will see how it all works out this spring BUT so far i am in the regret phase of using the better paint

1 part poly paint success?

Anyone ever use a 1 part polyurethane on their topsides with good success? I was thinking of using Interlux's Brightside for the decks and topsides.
