Hey Fred,
A friend of mine used a one part epoxy on his boat in New Jersey and had to re-due it again in a few years. The second time he coated the area with a two part system, and it has held up very well. The boat is obviously in dry dock during the winter months though. Personally, I would go with the 2 part epoxy for marine use.
