My understanding is the the single-season paints have to remain wet to maintain effectiveness. They are fine as long as they don't dry out - even for a couple years. The multi-season paints can dry...

I bought a Sea Snark for $50 when I was about 12. Biggest purchase of my life at that point! Moved up to a Sailfish when I put my knee through the bottom of the (styrofoam) Snark.
