If you are in South Florida and only get two years before you feel the need to recoating the Briteside, you will have avoided recoating the varnish at least three times.
Just throwing this out there for you. Pettit just released an additive for e-z poxy. Itís an extender you mix in. Iím going to use that when I need repainting.

Ted, that looks great! Do you have any cracking at the seams or has the epoxy stabilizedthe Wood enough to prevent that?

All above deck timber currently getting the same treatment.
Seconds on this for a color coat exterior. We did all the window frames and white painted exterior trim in this same paint with their best primer. Cleans up great and hard as a rock. We just finished sanding and painting the mast while we have it down. Ok she just finished. . . .

Joy and I have both seen it up close . It’s the best fiberglass and paint work we’ve ever seen. After we saw Ted’s boat we looked at each other decided not to show him our boat The dark and light blue are beautiful.

Parks,
Below are links to 2 posts from my refit thread describing the process of encapsulating the cap rails. The teak is wrapped with bi-axial cloth and West System.

No issues with cracking so far.

I was wondering why I wasn't offered a tour of William.

Tedís boat looks like a commercial for the finest painting boatyard. It shines and glimmers like a showroom multi million dollar yacht (and it looks great Year after year). It shamed all the boats at the Ft Pierce gathering, next year we need to move him to a different dock.

Decided on PainT!

I have decided to paint over all the outside varnish on my 1982 Marine Trader DC with Sherwin Williams Industrial HS Alkyd Enamel. Color to be "Saucy Gold" SW6370. They could not do this color in Marigold SW6664. They could not do either color in Seaguard 1000 Marine Alkyd Enamel.

You've got to stop parroting Don. We both know your boat was the focal point of attraction with Larry's and Don's a close second.

Ted. My boat was the center of attention because all the food and booze was there, yours attracted more looks and photos. Since you were a couple of boats away your shine didn’t take away much from mine.

FWIW, I too have used Brightside in SWFL, and the two-year life expectancy seems about right to keep its gloss. However, I extended mine for another year or so at a time by simply hitting it with some polish to get the top layer of chalked paint off. Probably would have lasted longer if Iíd actually waxed it. And mine was a bright yellow (smokestack) where the chalking showed pretty badly; another color might fare better in that respect.

Also, reading the history of the famed Ticonderoga, when she was conscripted into the Navy for WWII, her captain slathered on several coats of varnish over everything before they painted the battleship grey, and was credited with Ďsavingí her. Apparently the paint came off fairly easily after the war and never got into the grain and ruined the woodwork.

Ted. Your costing me $$$$ but the new ice maker is great and only uses water to make ice. Happy boater since the PSS seals have been replaced and the new windless mounted. Now to check out sea chests.

Amazing how that happens as a thread dies for lack of interest.
