The people at Pacer are very knowledgable so if you gave them a call I am sure they could answer that.

TO PAINT OR NOT TO PAINT?

I have a 7 to 9 year old 5.5m Gemini in Hong Kong that is starting to look very sad. The high UV has made the exposed surface of the tubes very powdery and hence patchy. I would love to re-tube, but I think the boat would have to go back to the UK for that. So, the question is paint or not paint? Any advice, please?

It works fine. I did one side in Spring 2012 and it hasn't worn or deteriorated at all so far.

Only thing I'd say is that you've got to be quite careful to get a nice smooth finish. Unlike normal paint, which smooths down after it's brushed on, the Liquid Letters just seems to dry with the brush marks still in it. So worth getting a smooth finish as you put it on and using a suitable brush. (I used a few different types of cheap pencil brushes). If you want a before and after picture, I can find one.
