TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint

TotalBilge is a long-lasting, epoxy-based bilge paint specifically formulated to protect your bilge, bulkhead, and locker areas. The constant exposure to harmful marine elements like heat, humidity, mildew, grease and grime requires a superior bilge barrier solution to resist moisture and repel most oils, acids, alkyds and solvents right on the spot.

When compared to the top brand name bilge paints, TotalBilge stands up to the test. The single-component paint is easy to apply, dries quickly, and provides excellent coverage with a much harder surface finish. In addition, TotalBilge is easy to clean and does not lift, mildew, or stain over time.

Available in Gray & White colors, in Quart and Gallon sizes.

Bonus: Each order includes 2 stir sticks, 2 QT size paint pots, and 1 pair of latex gloves - a $10 value.

Good paint

This is the first paint I've used; and I'm not dissapointed. It went on well and smooth, holds its shine, and to the elements. I'll buy Total Boat again.

This product is promoted as a bilgepaint. However, I do not know of many vessels where you have easy access to the entire bilge that would allow you to sand between coats. Thus the three star rating. I can picture someone using a roller requiring an extended handle attempting to get down to the bottom of the bilge in a sailbat or under an engingine between beams, and then attempting to find ways to sand between coats. That being said, only one other similar product that JD sells does not suggest that sanding is required, but I would advise calling the manufacturer in that case.

Finally, would I buy it agan - definately not since a areas of the bilge in my boat require special techniques just to be covered with paint. Accordingly, I would recommend using West Epoxy with a coloring agent, and applying a second coat, if necessary, once the first coat is tacky. I have made fiberglass over plywood diesel tanks using West Epoxy and they have lasted for years, accordingly, I would expect the same kind of results if I used epoxy in the bilge.

    Very easy to apply. I used a six-inch roller for large areas, and a two-inch chip brush for corners and edges. I kept the boat well ventilated aid used a respirator.

      Comments about TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint:

      Very easy to use. I used both a 4-inch roller and a paint brush for edges and corners. Inside my boat with two fans going (exhaust and supply), a respirator is mandatory.
      Coverage is light, but directions recommend multiple coats; I plan on applying three.

            I used TotalBilge Paint over epoxy repairs to my hull on the inside. It went on smoothly and covered easily with one coat. My bilge looks like new again. The painted surface seems very tough. Walking around on it and dropping tools has not produced a single scratch. So far, I am very impressed.

              I applied two coats to both sides of a 6 square foot battery/oil tank board after removing it from the boat. Paint applied evenly and left a nice finish. I suggest strong ventilation if applying in a bilge area; the fumes are very strong.

                  Use no more then an 1/8 of a can at a time because of the fast drying time. I was able to coat the under engine bilge area in a short time and was dry to the touch I over 2 hours. Clean up with mineral spirits. Nice gloss shark gray finish.

                    This paint is the best, goes down easy on a properly prep'd surface, smooth and hard as nails. Use anywhere you need a long lasting hard surface finish.

                    Comments about TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint:

                    Bought Total Bilge because of the epoxy description and assumed hardness after curing. I am pleased with the ease of application but cannot speak to it's longevity as it's only a month old. Be advised this paint starts drying within a few minutes so do not go back and re-brush prior areas, you will leave brush marks.
                    Paint has nice shine after drying and very durable finish. Fish hold definitely looks better and should lend itself to easy cleaning.
                    Wear a respirator, this is RUGGED stuff.
