Anyone heard of Progressive Epoxy? also 2 Part Polyurethane

Hi all. I'm in the process of refinishing the entire exterior of my 28ft. fiberglass sloop. I'm going to paint the topsides with 2-part linear polyurethane. At first, I was considering using Sterling or Awlgrip. I came across this webpage:

Progressive Epoxy Polymers and Resins - Home Page Pittsfield, NH

It belongs to a business Progressive Epoxy Polymers Inc. They sell a line of 2-part linear polyurethanes under the Parker Poly label. I've never met anybody who has tried or heard of this brand. So I'm wondering if anybody reading this has any experience with these companies. How did they go? They are significantly cheaper than other brands and they have a nice colour selection.

Also, should I paint my toe rail with a polyurethane (one part perhaps) or an alkyd enamel? My toe rail is made of wood (mahogany?) and currently has a failing layer of paint on it. I'm going to paint it the same colour as my boot stripe.

Thanks for your response.
