Default Boat Gel Coat Painting in MHC

Hey fellas, I'm going to paint the sides of my Cape Horn because the color I have just keeps wanting to oxidize even after wet sanding and waxing. Any recommendations of who does a good job in MHC? Thinking of Alexseal paint. Any comments on that?

George over at Crystal Coast Boatworks near Jarrett Bay is as good and competitive price-wise as they come. His guys are gel coat magicians.

Bills106 is painting my transom and putting the new name on, as well as some repairs to the transom door. I wouldn't overlook his crew as an option
