    One thing that does help is the ceramic beads in the paint for temp control. I have a couple coats mixed with epoxy and it keeps the surface from getting to hot or cold.

    Tom,

    I am considering to do the same on my deck with Hy-Tech ceramic beads, did you use them?

    just watch this video.
    Dragon shield is a polyurea spray on coating.
    I went to their site and recall seeing they do offer a roll on coating.

    Look up polyurea on youtube to see people waterproofing cardboard box. and I saw one spraying a wood boat hull.

    I roughnecked on oil rigs in Oklahoma for a while, back when Moby Dick was a minnow and I was buff.... what we did back then was mix four parts of oil-based, high-gloss industrial enamel with one part of spar varnish. It hung on like grim death without chipping, flaking or peeling, even on dirty and oily surfaces. Which was most of the rig, most of the time; we didn't really have time to prep. We just slopped the paint on, any time we had an hour or two.

    As a plus, it also gave the paint jobs some 'depth.' On clean surfaces, it looked like the paint was translucent and an inch deep.

    Interesting. Appears to be a number of different 'proprietary product names' associated with these various coatings as well

    This 'Dragonshield' is another of those similar materials??

    How about some off-road boating action...
