    Krylon is one of my favorite spraybombs and it would probably be my first choice on a bracket or something similar but it would never get sprayed on the outside of my boat.

      i used krylon on my steering wheel in my boat. it was white and i painted it black. i am very impressed . hasn't come off at all. not sure about fiberglass. good luck.
      As in people, there comes a time in your life when you realize what boat will always matter, what boat does matter, & what boat never did. So don't worry about the boats from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future. .

          Automotive paint won't peel off a well prepped gel coat surface and is a thousand times better than a rattle can product. So if you had problems before they will be worse now. The stress cracks need to be repaired or they'll be back before the boat hits the water.

            Ayuh,......... I completely Agree,.......

            Proper Preparation is absolutely necessary for Any paint,......... Even Rattle Can stuff.......
            Quality Paint don't come in Rattle Cans........
            Any Grease is Better,..... Than No Grease at All.......

              Color codes in rattle cans..

              Just found a link about KRYLON on fiberglass not sure if link works.


              guess il give it a go. just wondered if anyone had experience with this new type of paint. top of my boat is only aprox 25square feet so easy blending . not going to clear coat because of over spray issues i had before with cans.
