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.

      Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

      Very good leveling and decent coverage. Used the roll and tip method on the deck of a 45' sailboat. Will require two coats as all paints. Beautiful sheen. I was impressed with the flow ability and ease of applying this quality paint.

              Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

              This paint has proved to be a great topside coating for my 1971 Venture sailboat. Talk about a resurrection. My venture looks brand new. The paint goes on smooth and dries to an even shine. Apply quickly and add a second or third coat for a near factory finish.

                I used this paint on my 1960 40' Chris Craft Sportfish (wood). It worked better than I could have ever hoped. Much better flow and higher gloss compared to more costly alternitives. I used the roll and tip method. I would highly recommend this paint.

                  Used this for painting the inner hull of a strip built 17' Whiteside Pulling Boat I was making ready for the local grade school PTA raffle. It worked beautifully. I sanded the inner hull with 100 grit to remove the clear coat varnish I had originally used over the fiberglass resin. I first applied two cats of the primer using roll and tip methodology. Then applied 3 coats of the white Top Coat, again using roll and tip, and the results were fantastic. A physician who bought a few raffle tickets told me he thought the "gel coat" finish on the inside looked great. I assured him it was not gel coat.

                        I was pleasantly surprised with the way the paint went on. I have done a lot of work like this in my lifetime, but one thing is for sure: you need to follow the directions for keeping a wet edge. It worked out fine painting my canoe, but with only one person working it was very hard to keep a wet edge. Be sure to follow the directions and not go back and touch up.

                            Its a solid product, goes on and covers well. Its very cost efective as good as the high priced paints but will not level out well enough for the glass or sprayed look. I did 2 coats though 1 coat coverd perfect . I wet sanded and buffed after to get the sprayed look and is now perfect but that took a lot of extra efort. That said, Im very pleased with product.
