Two-Part Polyurethane Paint

I'm planning on painting my boat as the white gel coat is starting to show the colour underneath and I used 2 part polyurethane interlux perfection on another boat, I was also considering awlgrip, but I read about another one much cheaper called LPU from epoxy products it only comes in white and wondered if anyone has tried it what they thought and how the finish looks?

Re: Two-Part Polyurethane Paint

If you look at the costs involved in doing a decent LPU job, the cost of painting materials is a tiny fraction of the job. Why not go with the best? Use Awlgrip or Sterling instead of trying to save a buck on paint, IMHO.
