For my hull...above the blacking...I use Wickes non-drip black gloss.

It only gets scraped off anyway....it stays 'soft' so you do not get sharp edged chips...and its cheap !!

If I was going back to a blasted steel I would go for two pack black on the hull up to gunwale level, I know it fades a bit but it can always be overcoated with cheap black gloss when it does.

Topsides I don't know as I had my boat painted a few years ago and within 18 months the paint was falling off the roof, painted on bare steel and micro blisters on the handrails, cants and other flat surfaces

I assume...if you went to bare metal....you will use an etch primer...otherwise...the paint will fall off the roof..and you will get micro blisters...

 

Oh...

Hi

 

Dulux trade, it sticks it doesnt fade very quickly and it does not have a stupid price tag. Trees will scrape it off whatever you pay for it.
