What kind of prep work did you do Tim? That's a fine transformation from old and grotty to mint looking!
I've just done my SR4 deck, it still needs another coat but went on fine.

So my local chandler told me, he probably only said that so I'd buy the two tins he had left!
Can't see anything on Internationals site about it?

Good song!

The missing T in the title of this thread is really getting on my t!ts....
Found a deal of £36 for two tins of rescue orange delivered. Seems a good price?

aye that is not a bad price at all deliverd. I paid that from a shop.

I used 1 tin to paint a SR4 hull inside and out, looks really OK. so 2 tins should be plenty.

Suggest that you use a varnish spec small roller and take your time to prep the surface first as that is what make the difference between a good and a bad job. It is quite thin paint will need a good few coats to get the coverage but so far has stood up well.

I paid £17.40 a tin from the local place.
Like MDT said lots of thin coats and you end up with a super sexy shiny finish.

Can it be used on the Hull? Thought it was above the line only?

Taken from Internationals site:

Compatibility/Substrates Surface must be dry and clean, and free from grease, detaching paint etc. Use over suitably prepared and undercoated surfaces or existing paint schemes. Not suitable for permanently immersed surfaces
