I CANNOT recommend Altex products.
I can recommend International Perfection.
Paint is a far more effective procedure than Gelcoat.
Get all the advice you can find.
Then practice , practice , practice.
Then fight the fear and do it. The results will justify the lead up.
Take plenty of time and do not give yourself a time schedule.
I hope that helps and if you look for my other posts you will see photos of Blue Lady after all our work.

Read with alarm on your comment re Altex paint.
This is the second bad comment on Altex paint i have heard lately. Mainly to do with loss of gloss and durability within 18 months.
I was just about to embark on spraying the topsides with Altex #3, #2, & then Altex E-line 379. Its a lot of work to have a poor result 18 months down the track.
This came from a pro painter. He said it was harder to spray than Interlux 2 pack, as well.
Could you please elaborate on you experience?
PM me if you don't want it on the web.
