Have any of you sprayed petit easypoxy?

I just picked up a project boat that badly needs new paint on the topside and hull. while I know awlgrip is an excellent product but it's bloody expensive. I've used petit easypoxy on a number of hulls using the rolling and tipping method with good success but I'd like to spray this hull as I want a more high gloss finish. Any of you good folks have any experience spraying this product?

I once spray painted a logging helicopter with it. We were in Ketchikan, AK. and there was no better paint in town. It came out fine. The gloss was not so great but neither were the conditions or the prep.

The only downside is that after a couple of years you need start again,i mean any mono paint dont hold really well ..

thats my hang up, honestly I think I may just suck it up and get a 2 part paint, awlgrip more than likely since it's a product I'm familiar with and I know is good quality

In the long run a two part LPU is going to look better than a one part. It depends on how much sooner you do not mind repainting.
