I’ve used Petit’s Easypoxy enamel on the teak window frames of my North Florida-based sedan trawler for years. Every six months or so, I simply rough up what I’ve got with 220-grit sandpaper, scrape down the few areas that are cracked or chipped, and spend a cool but sunny day repainting. The sheen that results—largely due to the silicone Petit puts into this polyurethane product I’d venture—is both gelcoat-like and long lasting. But get this now. Petit’s just launched a new and improved product they’re calling EZ-Poxy2. Like its one-part predecessor, the new two-part poly cuts the effect of brush strokes to zip, says Petit, and is otherwise so forgiving “it’s practically foolproof.” Moreover, EZ-Poxy2 is said to have added UV protection and gloss retention. And supposedly, you can mix the base and hardener any dang way you choose, although Petit recommends a certain ratio. Quite frankly, I can’t wait to try the stuff.
An epic introduction at the yard brought the eyes of the boating world to the MCY 80. The latest launch from this builder brings style and sophistication in a gleaming package.
