Cellulose paint above the waterline

Looking at different option for spraying the Tremlett and wondered if anyone could see any problems with using cellulose paint above the water line?

I have used it. Just standard ford diamond white with lacquer. Looked OK at the time but didn't last. It chipped really easy and I won't be using it again.

Cheers, might have to look at the two pack stuff.

Any difference between two pack marine paint and 2K automotive paint.
I know the 2K is quite nasty on the lungs.

Thought about rolling 2 pack on? People have had good results by rolling then tipping with one of those foam brushes or pads.

Not boat related but the guy I used to work for used to paint the vans with a sponge roller came out ok had the orange peel effect.
Best thing was the guy in the premises next door did his van but the muppet used a fluffy roller

Makeing sure you choose the RIGHT Primer or...indeed Primers (Depends on paint system) and Useing a Bar Coat First is always a very good idea in my experiance with Fibre glass.

We have some World class yacht painters/finishers around here largely due to this place. Pendennis Worldclass Superyachts

Some of the 2 pack and epoxy work I've seen is stunning.

Awlgrip do a brushable topcoat, and the results are superb. It's helps if your handy with a brush, but even a numpty can get a reasonable finish.
