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.

    Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

    Just finished a Gheenoe project boat transformed to a flats boat. Used total boat wet edge in Seafoam, used a 6in foam roller and came out with very small bubbles which was expected. Used a second roller to tip off instead of the brush and came out flawless. Wet sanded first coat with 320 with plenty of water and second coat came out perfect with plenty of shine. Only suggestion if your going to attempt to use this paint go very very light on the paint, do not load the roller like painting a house, a little goes along way and keeps the bubbles down. Great product with a quick delivery, thanks Jamestown

          Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

          Sanded the topsides of my '65 MFG Westfield then brush painted with Totalboat gray primer. Sanded very lightly then rolled and tipped Totalboat seafoam. I had never rolled and tipped before but it wasn't too bad. Used small foam rollers and a decent brush. Mostly very smooth. I'd recommend a little practice at first especially on vertical surfaces to get the right mix of thinner. Got about three coats on from a quart. After a summer of use it still looks great. The only nicks and wear were on areas I really abused (dropped a ladder on it, etc).

              I used the paint on the bottom of a 34" Mahogany Radio Controlled boat. The boat has 2 coats of Top Coat Gleam
              diluted 1:1 for sealing.
              Then 8 coats full strength and sanding between coats. BEAUTIFUL finish!!!!!!?

                  Having used other Total Boat products with sucess I had a professional painter attempt to spray Wet Edge on a my dinghy.Paint did not lay down or flow easy. Had to remove and prep a second time and ended up using another product. I would not recommend this product for spray application

                        Was very hesitant to paint over the gelcoat, but buffing no longer brough back the shine. Watched the video and used the roller and tip method and turned out perfect. Took two coats over TotalBoat Primer.

                        Only complaint - and reason for the four stars - is the paint color was very hard to match. After lots of quarts, we mixed our own, lettle bit of this some of that, and presto exact match - but time intensive. Paint chips would have been a big improvement.

                        Overall very satisfied. In fact came out so nice now doing the decks with TotalBoat non-skid - also excellent product.

                        Btw, also did a good job of hiding the tiny spider cracks.

                          Went on great. Restoring a 1969 Boston Whaler. See the before and after pics. Three coats used. Only have to test the durability now. Buy a lot of foam rollers, regardless of cheap or expensive ones, they deteriorated as I used them.
