We use this stuff in the workshop as well as sell it and find it works really well,

however it is a type of paint and although it stands up to the flexing it does not stand up to barnacles on sea walls.

louis - unless they've got really bad since I last saw your boat (which was a while) then I don't think they need painted... ...perhaps some of JWalkers special trick with gunwash/thinners ? IMHO painted tubes look naff after a year or two.
