TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint

TotalBoat Wet Edge is a one-part, high-gloss polyurethane topside finish. This thick, rich topside paint is easy to apply and has excellent coverage characteristics. Advanced UV stabilizers ensure high gloss and color retention. Choose from 20 popular colors in quarts or gallons.

Wet Edge is easy to clean, resists staining, & has incredible abrasion resistance. Our unique urethane formula provides superior adhesion and flexibility, allowing the natural expansion and contraction of your boat's hull without causing the finish to lift or crack. Elasticity provides longer life and increased durability over leading marine one-part enamels.

Brush or spray on fiberglass, wood, or previously painted surfaces above the waterline. For best results, prepare surfaces with TotalBoat Topside Primer.

Select colors are now available in pints, perfect for boot stripes.

I am restoring a 1966 Boston Whaler Sakonett. The interior was filthy and the gel coat in poor condition and highly oxidized. Tried the buffing route but not happy. I was leery about using 2 part epoxy paints and settled on TotalBoat Wet Edge Top Coat in Boston Whaler Blue. Like any paint job, the prep is critical to the final appearance. After extensive cleaning, degreasing, filling holes and gouges and a final sanding with 180 grit I primed with TotalBoat high solids primer (also a one part product). I used a dense foam roller to apply the primer. Great product! Sanded with 220 grit and applied the top coat. I used the same dense foam rollers and tipped lightly with several inexpensive (throw away) brushes as I went along. I used around 1 and 1/4 quarts on the first coat. I will be applying a second coat. TotalBoat Wet Edge is simple, fast, covers well and EASY to apply. Dries very glossy, hard and within 12-15 hours at 70 degrees and 20% humidity at the time. GREAT PAINT at a very fair price point.

Had a marginal experience with Interlux Brightside about 10 years ago and swore I would never use one-part poly topside paint again. Saw the great reviews for this product and decided to try it; unfortunately, it was a mistake. I have used Awlgrip, Interlux Perfection, and Epifanes two-part poly; all are great products. With the one-part products, either you don't thin it and it doesn't flow well, or you thin it and it doesn't dry or cover well. I used a bit too much Interlux 333 thinner on my first coat and it was disastrous. I added a little at a time until I felt it was flowing adequately; but the paint sagged and took a week to dry. Don't be scared of two-part paints, they are worth the extra money anytime and are easier to use and result in a more durable and nicer looking product. Not sure if I got a skunk quart, but I could not get this stuff to work for me AT ALL. Really wishing I went with two-part paint but I learned my lesson again.

Good results, slow drying in high humidity

    Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

    Used for outwale on a plywood skiff I'm building. First coat applied at about 85 degrees and relatively high humidity took over 48 hours to set up tack free. Second coat put on at around 80 degrees and 50 percent relative humidity is still tacky after 16 hours. Then paint was well mixed and issue seems unrelated to underlying surface since the roller tray and drips around the can have also not dried. Results from rolling and tipping seem very good but drying time is impacting the completion of my project.

    Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

    The final finish was great, I was very surprised by the final outcome. I did not think it would be as smooth when using a roller. I could not get the coats thin enough though, I used total boat brush thinner bit it made it to soupy. It applies much better if not thinned. I let the final coat dry for 3 days before wiping off imperfections and dust and reinstalling hardware. I ended up nicking the paint a few times which peeled off the paint from the primer. I wet sanded a few imperfections from dust and ended up taking up taking a few layers of paint with it. If you decide to use it is would recommend not over sanding the primer.

        I used the Boston Whaler Blue on the bottom of a 13' Scamp fiberglass camp trailer. Just what I was looking for. I watched your roller and brush technique video, but opted for spraying such a small area with lots of little protrusions. Terrific product. I'm glad to have found a good source for my next project.

        Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

        I used this product on the interior and topside of a flats skiff I have built. The paint went on well, but you have to be careful about the thickness. The instructions say that 16 hours between coats is enough but I learned I need to wait a minimum of four days for the paint to cure enough to not have issues with the next coat. I applied two coats of white over the Total Boat primer and then applied a coat of Total Boat Non-skid in traffic areas. Once the topside completely cured, the finish is slick!

                  I rolled and tipped this paint on my 30' boat in spring 2016. It was easy to use and I'm happy with the results. Now let's see how durable it is.
