reg replied to Ann and Neville Clement's discussion Good oil based polyurethane paint available in Georgia, USA
"The International paint took a beating without any real problems, it was on a Danish Trawler built for the North sea and Baltic, we used Nordhavns for fenders. You will be painting over epoxy and I do not have any experience of the paint over epoxy."
