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.

    I like how tough the finished surface was. Sanding and buffing brought out a shine that looks factory. I'm completely satisfied with Wet Edge and will use it on future projects.

      Awesome paint. I was worried as a beginner about repainting my old Whaler, and this paint is a breeze. It went on with a brush and looks like it was sprayed. Really distributes evenly and without a single brush mark. I was only going to do the floor and now contemplating the entire interior.

            I used this to re-paint my aluminum binnacle and this was a very difficult job due to the curves and ridges. Despite being very careful I still got runs/sags, which I will fix over time. Get the thinner. Roll and tip. Don't chase holidays. Be patient, this isn't the paint for the faint of heart. But, the paint looks great. Nice color and finish.

              I was nervous to do hull side and transom. Followed the instructions and watched the videos closely. I use the roll and tip method and could not be happier with the outcome. Only caution would be roll very small areas then tip. Wet edge mad it blend perfectly.
