i really liked the durability of the original awlgrip, the hard shell on it is tough as nails, my father has a large sport fish painted with it, he had a 15ft section of the side painted from water line to rub rail. the painter shot it around 8 am and came back from lunch gave it a scuff and buff before it fully cured and got to hard to polish. it came out flawless, i was amazed. ive tried to buff it myself and had bad luck bringing it up, the key is in buffing the blend soon after shooting it about 5 of so hours later. what is awlcraft, a new line of awlgrip paints? thx, rm

in a perfect world...i hit a lot of little island party hangouts in the tampa bay area, and it's hard to keep sand off your feet 100% of the time, it just happens i was really impressed with the original awgrip as being some really tuff stuff, so thats what i want to paint the mich boat with, ive made my mind up. just trying to be sure i buy enough material

You guys are making fun of rolling it on. On the awlgrip website it says you can roll it on no problem. You just have to tip it with a brush and wet sand after.

sorry it took so long to get back. Should be 4 mixed. I used to have a great paint team that worked for me, but I couldn't keep my lead guy sober enuf to come to work more than 3 days a week. Oh well.
