Hull Paint

Hi all
Im aimng to paint my hull shortly as its looking tatty, can anyone recomend a good product that will look the dogs wotsits? I was wondering if there was a paint on gel coat or epoxy paint. Has to be something hard wearing and of course a nice shade of orange...... Any help would be much apreciated.

International have now stopped making the rescue orange in the perfection range, Does anyone have any idea of a hard wearing paint in the orange colour which looks good??

Sparex twopak paint

You could try Sparex. they do tractor and agricultural 2 Pak poly paint. Their paint can be used with or without hardener and is very hard wearing.(guess it has to be for a muck spreader)
I painted a landrover withit 12 years ago without any hardener and that still looks OK.
i was going to either mix up some massey red and john deere yellow to make orange or use howard rotavator orange for the searider. its cheap too 8 a litre + thinner and hardener.
The MSDS is similar to the perfection one maybe its the same stuff different wrapper?
I rekon two litres would do a 6m rib hull. I recall i used about 2 litres to do a 109 landrover.
any trtactor spares place keeps it.
