Hi John

You might get some ideas from this:

Is yr boat wood, fibreglass or metal?

I got Toplac marine fibreglass paint from a local supplier here in Ballina
for half the price of other sources last year. I think it was old stock,
but it was GOOD old stock!!

If you let me know what and how much you want (and colour) I will see if
they have it.
