Solitude - I used the topcoat paint
modified with a non-skid additive for the non-skid. This was done subsequent to the images
shown in the post.
James S - Aurelia looks the same now as she did two summers ago, (excluding some new dock
rash - ouch!). My spring prep prior to launching is simply a wash and rinse. I believe that repainting her every four or five years takes less work
that yearly buffing and waxing - two dreary tasks that I don't have to do any more.
Thanks, folks, for your kind comments.
