Acrylic or Marine-Grade Paint for Decks?

Good Questions

Q: I need to paint my wood decks and was wondering about using marine paint. I live in Montana and want something that will last as long as possible. Should I use the old standby regular acrylic or should I use marine paint?

I am confused as to the price and if it would truly be worth it. Is it brush paintable or does it have to be sprayed? I cannot seem to find out anything here in Great Falls at the local paint places. No one here has heard a thing about marine paint and can't seem to find anyone that sells it.
