should be about 4 gallons. If I remember correctly. Also, make sure you use a couple coats of primer.

I was just wondering why you are using Awlgrip when there are so many brands of urethane's out there that are chaeper and easy to apply. All the custom shops paint boats with'em and don't have any problems and if you need touch up its easy to get in small amounts.

20 years ago while on my fathers boat it lost power pulling into his slip we hit the dock at 5 knots and the boat rode 6 or 7 feet up the dock then slid back down it, big black creasote mark on the front of the boat 5 foot long, he wiped it clean with a laquer rag....no scratch in the paint. i was sold on awlgrip right then and there. try walking on a urethane deck with sandy feet, it will have scratches all over it over in no time.

Now you're talking style.
Reason I asked is because just the other day I saw a guy laying down a fresh coat of white paint on his fine automobile...in his driveway....with a roller.

1 quart

Glide it on with a popsicle stick. Bristles in the brush waste all the paint on the way from the can.
