TotalBoat Elixir is a fast-drying, semi-gloss, water-based enamel marine paint finish suitable for a wide range of interior and exterior applications. Great for topsides, coamings, cabin ceilings, lazarettes, lockers, doors, cabinets, trim, bulkheads, galleys & more.
Elixir's marine-grade formula is more durable than conventional 1-part paints. Powerful UV inhibitors prevent fading, while its forgiving, semi-gloss finish hides imperfections better than high-gloss finishes. Fast-drying, self-priming paint can be applied directly to properly prepared fiberglass, wood & metal surfaces.
Superior abrasion, moisture & stain resistance, no harsh fumes, plus easy soap & water cleanup also make Elixir ideal for use on cabinets, doors, trim, paneling & baseboards in your home.
Available in quarts, in 10 popular colors. Includes 2 paint pots, and 2 stir sticks.

I like the water-based feature, but it is difficult to use on vertical surfaces because it is so thin. Tends to run and drip. Also, coverage is not good--takes three coats where BrightSide would only take two.

A bag of paint- innovative and convenient. Put three coats on Whaler woodwork. Finish seems a little chalky, we'll see how it holds up out in the weather all summer.

The paint goes on as thin as water and does not have any opaqueness to it. Did a couple of areas one on raw plywood another on epoxy coated plywood and decided to return the paint.

Just applied a third coat to the cabin interior (and used a third quart). White covers white but nothing else though it's getting closer with each coat. Low VOC is a big plus for cabin interior work; primary reason I chose this paint. Plan on investing extra time, patience, and material in the project. Totalboat should consider selling it by the gallon with a price break for quantity.

I have now done two projects with this paint. Yes, it does take a lot of coats, but they go on quick and set up well. Two of us put five coats on the topsides of a Whaler in about six hours. So far both projects - an outdoor sign and Whaler topsides rehab - are holding up. Soap and water clean up is a breeze and the bags are great. One note is that two bags of product did not match. My bad for not mixing them together. We solved the issue with another quick coat.

The paint comes in a bag which is fantastic - less mess and no skim-over once opened. Elixer applies easily and dries quickly to a hard, even finish but is not terribly opaque. Even after four coats you can see the spots where I had sanded through to the base wood. The paint is very thin and requires attention to avoid drips. It's best use is as a refresher coat over a similar color.

Used product to paint wood on screened-in back porch. Excellent packaging of product, easy application of product and color is beautiful.

I like the "bag" container but the coverage was not as good as expected and needed to order more than expected.

I'm really happy with this paint on the deck my 42 year old sailboat - she's looking pretty close to new and I've been getting some mildly envious comments from neighboring sailboats. It sticks really well, is easy to roll and tip and has the perfect sheen for an older boat - high gloss shows too many of the little nicks and bumps & doesn't look as nice in my opinion. It also has a great "grip" feel under bare feet compared to my friends' oil gloss boats. I'm going to paint the hull next - very confident that it will do well. the bad news is that it will take at least 3 coats to get an even rich tone - the water soluble clean-up makes it a lot easier to do - but def will need 3 coats and the areas where we went 4 coats is even "deeper" looking. You can re-coat every two hours here in Hawaii. Anyway I'm satisfied and think the extra coating downside is worth it. I am also looking forward to touching it up as things happen over the next few years.
