Why use marine paints instead of house paints.

Well marine paints are modified paints designed to last longer with higher levels of inhibitors, flex better over time and have a tougher skin. Recently, a Pompei Built 50ft cruiser was painted in the wrong paint and about a week later the paint on the sunny side started to crack. This is why the right choice of product and correct application method is important for the best result.
