If so any tips? Most info I have seen suggests roll and tip but the tin says tipping may not be necessary...

Yep, sure have.
I rolled and tipped. Depends on the finish. Rolling only leaves a good finish, but tipping leaves a finish that resembles spraying.

You have to let it react for x minutes (15?) also temperature and must use the right type and amount of reducer. Ive got elite on mine, its extremely hard and looks mint after 10 years.

My deck and topsides were done in it 10ish years ago and its still looking good. Its started loosing its gloss in places now, but overall I've been very happy with it.
Like Wheels said, brush and tip gives a spray like finish

Used it on the inside of the sunburst a few years back - was pretty impressed how easy to use. and lasted well.

I have used it over lots of my topsides with just a brush. (Areas between non slip patches are two narrow even for a little roller in places!)
Get it mixed and thinned right and it flows out nicely. Have also used roller and tipped off. Also good.
Well better than toplac for example.
I painted under my heads with it and as expected gave a good high gloss easy clean finish.
The fumes were too much even with ventilation. If using interior get the right respirator!

I painted the window frames with a brush and the finish was much better so I would probably try roll and tip next time. Thats if god forbid I get the crazy notion to paint a boat again.
Any way, with this weather it is bloody nice to be back in the water...
