I've used this before....in your price range....but it doesn't come in Sea Foam, which is hard to believe...but I would contact them and ask if it can be tinted to your color of choice.

Sherwin Williams Acrolon. As good as awlcraft, half the price. You will need to find a Sherwin Williams chemical coating distributor to buy it. The regular Sherwin stores will look at you sideways.

You should be able to get a color very close to the Sea Foam by using the gloss tint base of Sherwin Williams Acrolon.

It looks like there are a few versions of the Sherwin Williams Acrolon. Which one is best for marine use?
