I have been having a real hard time finding the Krylon Webbing Paint locally, and as I was wandering around the local marine store, I noticed a quart of "Webbing Solution". I know it's used for gelcoat, but I was wondering if it would work with paint? I'm assuming since the gelcoat is sprayed, it's already reduced and mixed so that it is spray-able. So I figure it might have the same effect if used on paint? My skiff restoration is at a halt right now waiting to be webbed! Once I web it, I can start putting fittings, hoses, and pumps. Then the deck liner will go on. I can order the webbing paint online, but if this would work, a trip to the marine store (that is 2 lights away) would get the job done in a timely manner.

Thanks
-Eric

Cool. Do you know if they sell gelcoat by the quart? I know the gallon of gelcoat is $30 at the local marine store.

I've seen white gelcoat sold by the quart can.
Pigments also for coloring the gelcoat.
Used to get it at a marine hardware store
north of the Miami River at NW 27 ave.
Check your local suppliers.
West Marine had some the last I looked locally.

Fiberglass Coatings has it in pints, quarts, and gallons. Cheaper than West Marine. 800-272-7890 There is a store in Ft. Laud or we will UPS it. $30 for gelcoat is pretty reasonable though.

I picked up the webbing solution. I was going to get a quart of black gelcoat but the guy told me to save my money and just use polyester resin with black pigment. He told me to mix 1 to 1 webbing solution with polyester resin (with catalyst and black pigment), then 10% acetone and spray it. I'm going to give it a try and see if it works.
