I’ve had a couple of boats painted and I suggest having it done as close to home if you can find a good painter. I found showing up everyday or even a few times a day to inspect the work made for a better job. I used Awl Grip and while I have heard of Alexseal I really don’t know how it compares to Awl Grip.

I had the boat painted by two guys who used a brush. A neighbor boat was being sprayed and the owner insinuated that I would get an inferior product but I said I like the thickness of the paint using a brush. Boat were close to being splashed and he said to me that “I see you sprayed your boat” because it came out better than his. I nodded and walked away. It did look better than his spray job.
