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.

Being a novice and my first build I find Totalboat Topside easy to use. Coverage is quite complete with just one coat. Roll and tip method was my first attempt and enjoyed the smooth, high gloss finished product.

    Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

    I completely changed hull colors from dark blue to pure white and it covered in two quick and easy coats. It is a job best suited for two people because of the fast dry time but one nimble person could do the job if needed. Watch the JD videos and I utilized the experts at JD via a phone call before using the paint. Highly recommended. Thanks Jamestown !!!

                      I do quite a lot of interior and some exterior painting for my job...but this is a first for painting a boat. I started sanding the hull of my 1971 25' luhrs and realized how bad the gellcoat was, it was full of pits everywhere. I used the Jamestown high build primer, not expecting good results. it pleasantly surprised me with how well it filled in ! the can says it sands easy. it really does ! it filled quite well and applied the wet edge topcoat by roll and tip. very well pleased with the results. I cant say about durability, but it is nice paint !!! I would recommend it !

                      This was my first time using any Jamestown paint products. Like any polyurethane paint the smell is strong but this product was far less intrusive than other brands I have used. I used a foam roller and a tipping brush to paint the hulls of two canoes and a row boat. The paint went on smoothly with the roller. The wet edges blended nicely. After lightly tipping the area, according to directions, the paint created a very smooth surface with no imperfections. Sanding the paint between coats was very easy and fairly clean. The result was amazing. I most definitely will use this product again and will look at using other Jamestown paints when the need arises.
