Default Paint GUYS

Just wondering if any of you have used the Durratech clear mixed in with the Gel Coat? I am really leaning towards Gel Coating my boat using Durratech clear mixed in with the color. What I am wondering is how much better does it spray out with the Durratech? Also what do you think. Am I making a HUGE mistake hear? The other option is Awlgrip however I do not have a booth to spray it in and that could be a issue. I also figured that I can either wet sand the boat before I paint (Awlgrip) or after (Gelcoat). I have a water Jitterboard for the wet sanding to help make it go faster. Anyhow any info hear would be great as I am ready to prime then paint is next.
Put your best foot forward!

I've heard of so many problems when spraying gell. I'd have to say that you should be sticking to a quality acrylic enamel.
