I bought an old boat with bottom paint in poor condition. I want to strip the bottom paint and do a nice job but no time this season so I tried to find just any bottom paint to do touch up. This stuff goes on fantastic and looks amazing, even without prep and over the crusty old stuff. I love it. I hope it does well in the water. I'm just about to launch mid August so I'll have to report back about the anti fouling but at this point I am thrilled with the product.

Absolutely the best paint for my sailboat

I used Hydrocoat on a 2006 Bayliner 285. I had the bottom blasted and I prepped the bottom with solvent applied two coats of barrier coat and two coats of Hydrocoat. Two years later I applied a third coat. It really didn't need it but I had almost a full gallon from my first application. It really didn't need it I was just trying to use the paint before it became unusable. This all started seven years ago. The boat is a freshwater boat used on eastern Lake Erie. I sold the boat four years ago and it is still docked at my same marina. The bottom still looks great. I will be applying Hydrocoat to the boat I own now.

I was a faithful CSC user for 30 years. Three years ago I changed over to Hydrocoat during our last vessel purchase. The results have been great. Hull is nice and clean after fall wash down each year.

Went on very nicely, but don't know how it will hold up reason for only 4 star. Have not had the boat out yet to try.

I have only put a section of this paint on a small area I sanded down to the gelcoat just to test it out. The paint flows on beautifully and working with a water-based bottom paint is so much nicer than the traditional paint. If it holds up this season, it will become my "go to" bottom paint on both my boats.

I will be requesting a refund for 2 qts of this which was unusable. Paint was separated top third liquid bottom 2/3 was a tar ball. No amount of mxing would re-emulsify, just created smaller tar balls. Two previous years it was great. No new bottom paint on SeaWolf this year as launch is 5/20 8am.

I put Hydrocoat on my 32' cruising sailboat 3 years ago and it worked well. Deceided to use it again and it had the consistency of organic peanut butter. Took 15 minutes of determined mixing and got it mixed but it would not roll on well. Clumped up and I had to sand it off! Talked to JD rep and he said to mix it 1/1 with water and stir it well. I did 1:2 and it worked! Went on well and looks pretty good. Directions on can said no more than 10% thinner. Used a gallon on a 32' boat.
