I have a customer who wants me to paint his canvas canoe again with basic alkyd exterior paint because he wants it to match something else. I don't have much faith in house paint (exterior, porch paint, etc) as I have found it not to last as long, not have the high gloss and scrapes off easier. Not to mention that the 5 year old canvas that I put on there is still in good condition but seeps water right through the same paint where he has scraped it. Any thoughts as I don't want to just cover up with more bad paint? Considering a skim coat of epoxy of the paint. West technical team says it will bond to the old paint if roughed up and clean.
