This paint was amazing and easy to work with. Just over one quart gave me two coats on a 20' Grady White, and the cost per quart crushed competitors. TB

Tis is a great product, I couldn't get my boat off the trailer so I jacked it up and blocked it up about 6 inches. This was a kit complete with roller, tray and tyvex coveralls. I was able to buy ,2 coats on using about a third of the gallon. I have 22 C Dory cruiser.

Bottom painting has never been less of a chore. Inoffensive and Effective in Chesapeake waters.

This is my second season for JD Select. Last year's results were OK with only 1 - 2 dozen or so barnacles from mid-Chesapeake waters. I use two coats of JDS on a 30 ft sailboat that stays in the water 7 - 8 months so a single season paint seems to work for me. Pros - rolls on easily and covers well, adequate protection Cons - does not store well - regardless of endless power stirring, had to strain to get hard chips out of JDS left over from last year.

Decent coverage, lasts all season

This product is used on my 33 foot sailboat in mid Maine. The boat is in the water from June 1 to October 1. I live on the boat during the summer and get lots, almost daily sailing time. Besides the weekly scrub of the waterline, from the dinghy. The bottom stays clean enough that a quick power wash takes off the minimal slim that accumulated over the summer. A quick sanding in the fall with 180 grit , keeps the bottom smooth and gets rid of any build up. I use one gallon with the foam roller that comes from Jamestown .

I purchased two quarts of the blue bottom paint. after exhausting the first quart, we opened the second of can, and discovered it did not dry to the same color as the first. perhaps we should have mixed the two cans together before application, thus an even color. this insight should be shared with future purchasers of this product.

color did in fact go from dark green to grass green. also definitely does not cover as well, very thin. I used it for 3 seasons but cannot anymore. ingredients have changed comparing last years can to this year.

Easy to apply. We'll see how it performs when the boat is hauled in the fall. (Maybe it deserves five stars...) Including the painting kit was a fabulous idea. JD customer service is tops!

This product was amazing and they sent the product with the roller pan tape and tyvex suit that I was not expecting for free. It rolled on great and dried just as fast as I could roll it on so there was really no wait time in between coats. I put four coats of paint on my 24' boat in 8 hours. Overall great product.
