Does anyone have any experience with sharks rolling, slapping and banging their Awlgrip'd hull?

I love the finish the Awlgrip product provides, but am concerned that after releasing a few blue dogs or harvesting a mako my freshly finished hull will be a scratched mess!

Thanks!

My hull has perfection on it and the swivels and sinkers do more harm than the blue dogs have so far. Doesn't like impact but takes abrasion well

Thanks for the responses.

I am also prone to smacking large swivels and 3 oz sinkers of the hull. Repairing white gel coat is fairly straight forward. How do you repair an damaged/worn awlgriped surface?

Thanks again.

Painting is easy, my problem is that the color is mixed and all I can do is get vey close. Go with a color that come right out of the can
