- Oct 2, 2011It's glossier than an oil based house paint. Doing a roll and dip you have
to get VERY close to see that it has been brushed on. (It self levels well).
I bought some for my breach cat to try out before I paint my Cape Dory
Typhoon this winter.
I'm very happy with it. Now I don't know how long it will last, UV
resistance etc... I ASSUME however that it will be superior to a porch and
floor enamel (which costs the same)
