    I've got Rustoleum gloss black on my gaffer (exterior topsides), second season coming to a close.
    I have to say, for ten bucks a quart (which means $5.00 per coat), the stuff holds up. We'll see how well it survives through year three.
    Regardless, black Interlux at $35.00 per quart is way too much.
    I do use Easypoxy white semi-gloss for many interior surfaces. I actually use the lesser expensive grade, Old Salem, about $19.00 a quart.

    I am using Wal-Mart porch and floor, $16 per gallon!

    The stuff is thigh enough to put on with a putty knife!

    LOL, Jim you're always good for a laugh (not you- what you say hehe) I did splurge on the bilge, using Interlux bilgecoat. Soon the cabin will be smooth enough to paint and I'll throw on a pair of coveralls and just spray the whole damn thing. I should come out looking like a ghost covered in white mist hehe...
