It's no secret that it's hard to get paint to stick to aluminum. Success usually involves sanding, etching, and applying a toxic chromate primer.
With TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint, etching is optional and may improve adhesion, but what's most important is that this unique paint is designed to be applied directly to shiny, bare aluminum. It has an advanced, polyurethane formula that makes it bond strongly and durably without etching and priming first. It's also more environmentally friendly because it's chromate-free, with an extremely low VOC content and almost no odor.
The surface prep is actually fast and easy for bare aluminum in good condition—just clean thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, grease or contaminants, then dry completely. If the bare aluminum has a dull, oxidized look, use 220-grit to sand until shiny, remove sanding residue, wipe with denatured alcohol or use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash as directed, and allow to dry completely before immediately applying TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint.

I have used Total Boat Aluminum Boat Paint on two projects so far and like the results. Both boats were older boats, a 12' vee hull and a 10' jon boat. On the advice of the Jamestown Distributor's help staff I used Total Boat Etch Wash after carefully and thoroughly removing all oxidation with wire brushing and sanding. The etch wash was recommended to improve adhesion because of the age of the boats. I am happy with the results. On the 12' boat I only painted the interior and it required two coats to cover well. I painted both the interior and exterior of the jon boat and that also required two brushed on coats. The finish looks like an original aluminum boat finish and that is what I like about the product best. If there were one improvement it would be better adhesion. The paint scuffs off easily under normal use. Touch ups remedy the problem and I will continue to use Total Boat Aluminum Boat Paint.

Very good coverage, durable, and looks great when dry

I love that you can roll, brush or spray this paint. Its easy to apply and looks very nice. I have had minor scuffing bit that is to be expected over bare aluminum. Where I used the 2 part epoxy (the bottom) its rock solid. Can't ask for much more. 2nd boat I've painted with this product and I'll use it again.

I've been covering Navy gray with Total Boat light gray. Should be easy but after 2 coats it still isn't covering uniformly. The paint doesn't mix well, if you're painting over a darker color the base comes right through and in those areas where it does cover, the color is uneven. If you like doing things right and spend the time to do the proper prep, this pant will break your heart - it did mine.

I applied this product using a hvlp sprayer over epoxy on my boat project. Product was thinned at 10% and it applied effortlessly with an outstanding finish. It's to early to grade durability but after only a couple of days the finish appears resistant to scratching. Three coats by sprayer seems to be the ticket.

Used this paint to refinish the aluminum coping on my indoor pool. it did an awesome job! It took 2 coats to cover completely. My coping on the pool looks like new!

Applied with a paint roller on aluminum boat and it laid f do own like it was sprayed on. I'm very impressed with the product.

Used on my aluminum jon boat, paint went on easy and covered very well, got a gallon but could have easily got by with a quart because of the good coverage.

I have an old Jon boat from the 50's which need a new look. This paint worked really well in my sprayer and leveled out nicely to give a smooth finish.
