Well I had my boat painted. Paiinting gelcoated boats is a pretty common practice. Why is this posted in Shurholds forum anyway?

Like FishnFool said, it's not uncommon to sand down and spray over the top of gelcoat. Pro's are essentially "resetting" the life of your finish and giving you a nonporous surface for wax to adhere to. Plenty of people do it when the gelcoat has been worn thin or has denatured to the point of not being cost effective to restore.

Even new boats where paint is going to be the final finish are built with gelcoat.
