    Excuse the jump in but what do you guys think of interlux's Perfection or other lines? If I'm going to spray what my best choice? I don't mind some extra bucks if its worth it in longevity/ appearance. Is any of the brush on stuff really as good as spray? I have never seen it before but I have not done a lot of painting either. I'm lining up my 26' Islander for a paint job before it gets cold. The boat is aluminum and I'm repainting the painted parts.

    On my last boat I used the standard interlux and sprayed it, and it turned out pretty good, but I want the extra durability of a 2-part poly because the standard interlux needs more attention as it gets scratched and abraded easier.

    How does the interlux compare to awlspar etc? I'm all for better quality.

    Awlgrip (IMO) is the best bang for the buck. Sterling is "suppose" to be the industries finest, that is if your basing the quality on price. I think at this level, the average guy is not going to know the difference. It becomes a preference thing, like how does each paint perform while applying it, etc... Awlgrip tech guys are super approachable and very knowledgeable. You can find both brands at the marine exchange or West. Good luck.

    Use stearling only if you want to spray it. You cant roll and tip it. By far the best finish if you can spray it though. If not use AWLGRIP or PROLINE. I've used both A LOT! Awlgrip is much easier to apply (does not sag as much) but Pro-line is much cheaper.

    How much should a 32' flybridege boat cost prep and paint with Awlgrip from the waterline up? Going in next week.
