Topside tube paint?

Has anyone had success with Topside tube paint?
Or is there a better product?
What is the finish like?

I have used polymarine tube paint a few times ,
Some colours seem to work better than others grey/black seem ok but as everything paint wise its all in the preparation and a decent brush for best results also temperature and humidity have an influence.
Brushing with short strokes seems to be the best way as the stuff is just about drying as its going on and can be touch dry in minutes but full curing takes a week or so.
It will cure porosity within reason but any loose bits of the tube need sanding .its ideal for an aged tatty boat and can revamp can get a few more years out of it .
