I think Jamestown Dist. Total Boat, Wet Edge is supposed to be low VOC. I don't really remember much of a smell.

I checked. I don't think the paint is that bad. But, the thinners are.

I used SystemThree Water Based LPU on my latest build. No fumes, no expensive thinners or cleaners needed, and very happy with the finish.
