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 12 colors in gallon and quart sizes.

Wet Edge is easy to clean, resists staining, and 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 steel anywhere above the waterline. For best results, prepare surfaces with TotalBoat Topside Primer. Wet Edge may be thinned with mineral spirits when brushing & spraying.

    I was skeptical that a paint this cheap would not give me a good finish. It didn't. It gave me a superior finish. I had watched a video online of a guy that restores wooden boats painting his own and decided to try it his way. I was going to roll and tip but decided to just brush it on. I thinned the paint until it would run off of a paint stick for 6-8 seconds with 333 brushing solvent. Work in 2-3 sq' patches using a X stroke, then brush horizontally and tip off vertically with the same 3" synthetic brush and WOW!
    Folks passing buy asked me if I had sprayed it. The paint spread and flowed out nicely and dried to a hard finish. Sanded with 220 grit and second coated same way. I goofed up one section by painting in direct sunshine and got some runs. Work quickly but don't rush. I've had so many people tell me that the boat looks beautiful. All this at half the price of the "other" stuff.

    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.

    I was unable to use the product and returning it was not an option. The color was completely different from what I chose online. I would not buy any paint for topsides again online without a color sample from the exact cann of paint I was buying.

        Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

        Product should go on thin and fairly fast without over-touch. Thin (and cleanup) with mineral spirits as much as 20% as recommended in video. I used 50/50 Penetrol & spirits to help flatten. most applications were in temps over 85F and 70% + humidity here in FL without cover so it takes about four days to set up really well and then sands beautifully. I found using a good brush best in the conditions.

          Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

          Purchased because it was inexpensive and came in a color I wanted.

          I first sanded off all the old paint down to the original gel coat with 100 grit and filled any deep scratches.

          I sprayed two coats of JD primer sanding 180 and 220 after each coat. Take your time here as any scratches or texture in the primer will show through the topcoat.

          Followed instructions to thin 18% and sprayed two coats with HVLP gun and sanded 320 between coats. Take your time and don't put too much on or it will run. Use multiple coats. Also, I used mineral spirits to thin rather than Xylene which may have increased drying time.

          Working temperature was 68 to 72 F

          Used less than 2 quarts for topsides on a 22 foot sailboat.

          Overall I am very pleased. The new paint has taken a couple of good rubs at the dock and not been damaged. Bumps on transom corner and the bow have resulted in a couple of chips but are easily repairable with some leftover paint.

          I get lots of compliments and the only drawback is the extra hour spent at the dock talking about it. !! HaHa!

              I painted the entire topside of my 36ft. Sportfishing boat. Wet Edge was easy to work with, went on smooth with no thinning required. I did 2 coats using foam rollers and the finish was FANTASTIC! I would recommend this product to everyone.
              I had previously used Interlux Bright Side 4 years prior and I must say that Wet Edge was so much better in every aspect of the job! It dried quickly, covered well,and seems to be very durable. This product repels water extremely well and really sealed some problem areas that I have repaired in the past.

                    This paint was a lot cheaper than Interlux, which i have used for years. So far, I think the paint is every bit as good. The colors matched well and were easy to mix and apply. Time will tell if it holds up as well. I will buy this brand again.

                        I bought the TotalBoat Wet Edge paint to use on a pine Adirondack chair project. This paint really makes the chair stand out! The paint applies beautifully and once thoroughly dried is extremely durable. I applied the paint with a foam brush and in most cases got total coverage with one coat. An oil based primer coat was used with a bristle brush, next time I will either use a foam brush or spray the primer for a smoother brush stroke free finish. One note, the work time is short, just know that beforehand. The high gloss finish and ease of application is outstanding. The paint was shipped quickly and well packed.

                              Good Stuff at a Great Price. I have this on 2 of my wooden boats; Gardner Skiff and Shellback. It has held up very well. Goes on really nice and gives a great finish, I cannot tell the difference from Interlux and its much more affordable. I applied with 4" short nap roller and tip thru with epifanes brush; comes out great. I used Sea Green on hull, Kingston Grey interior, added intergrip for deck areas. I have usually preferred traditional enamel paints; but honestly this paint has converted me to polyurethanes. Make sure you want a high gloss type of finish; this is very shiny paint!

                                This paint goes on extremely easy and lays down smoothly. I like that it dries fairly quickly as I don't have a paint booth, so the faster it can dry, the less flying things can stick to it. I am very glad to see this paint works so well as the cost is much better than other comparable paints.

                                  I found this paint to be hard to work with. Sensitive to temp and humidity. Instructions on can are worthless. No real information, looks like a 5th grader wrote it. I tried everything, thinning, spraying, roll and tip, times and temp.
                                  results are not consistent or predictable. Product is thin and does not build well.
                                  I'll stick with Brightside.
