Gluvit paint on frp deck job

I have striped all the paint from the house and decks on my 38' Invictamk2. Gel Coat had been previously sanded down and awlgrip had been applied. It has failed in many ways. prob a 12yr old paint job, it was time.
Well I have striped almost all of the old paint via heat gun and pull scraper 1" blade in a smll vice grip. Push scraper w my trusty metal file next to me...long and arduous task, but it had to be done. So I've been at it. Not much left. Should be painting end of next week. Of couse sanding is next to give the surface teeth for adheision.

So I was considering Gluvit paint based on the MDS. Looking for first hand knowledge and experience w this product. I have gotten to reviews via phone calls, one positive and one negitive.

What say you in group?

Thank you in advance, David on the Nico

I would have just given it a light sanding and re-awlgripped it.
