Paint Work is preferred over Gelcoat repair on larger jobs. The better looking and longer lasting benefits of paint, hold up years longer than the few months of ‘new‘ look provided by gelcoat.
There are basically two types of Marine Paint used today.
1. Acrylic Urethane Enamel
2. Polyester Urethane Enamel
Acrylic Paint, buffs and blends the best, but is ‘softer’, therefore not as durable. Polyester Paint, requires an experienced professional touch for the best blending and will last longer due to its ‘hardness’. At, Flat Island Boat Works, we have the expertise to provide a great looking paint job in either paint type…but prefer to use the more durable and long lasting Polyester materials.
