Super Marine Paint- Ironside Urethane opinions?

Anyone have experience with this marine paint? Good for topside and below water. Can be brushed or sprayed and over 100 colours. All I see on various forums is mainly onInterlux or Awlcraft.

Looking to do a complete paint on my resto J-craft. Nice to have one paint for top and bottom.

below water line i've yet to find a paint that is worth anything. now above water line there are a couple that are not bad IMHO imron or awlgrip. there might be others but i know those are pretty good. again anything below waterline with paint just will not hold up.

Interlux has their VC Performance under water paint in semi-gloss white. When used with their interprotect system is creates a barrier and is warranted for under water use.

I was told to look into the Super Marine stuff...

Interlux Perfection, AlwGrip, Awlcraft 2000 all great reviews for topside paint

the semi-gloss white does work underwater however IMHO the finish is anything but a good finish. I've seen many boats with it and even though it holds up the looks of it are bla at best. being a bottom paint for a mc there will be a lot that is out of the water as well and that is where it will not look good IMHO.

Clear coated Imron will hold up under water as long as you are not leaving the boat in the water long term , Anything that can be brushed on is going to look like crap . I have done four hulls in base coat clear coat urethane both PPG and BASF products and they have held up very well . Shot a sail boat for a friend this summer with some West Marine paint and it looked nice just not sure on its longevity yet . Prep work and a good epoxy sealer is the key
