JD Select can be brushed, rolled, or sprayed then burnished for a smooth, fuel-efficient finish. With the exception of VC17, JD Select can be applied over aged antifouling coats without fear of lifting.

JD Select Features

J D Sselect was recommended and used. The shipping was as expected and the price was also very good. The paint itself was easy to work with and applied very well. There was no foul taste or atmosphere during the application. I have faith that the product will wear and preform the way it was designed. At this point I would buy more and also recommend to others.

The first can the top came off in shipping and they immediately sent a second that arrived fine. I will let you know how paint works after season.

Product works great. Good coverage over old paint. Easy cleanup.

The product was easy to use. I was able to put one coat on the entire water line and down with less than 1 gallon of paint for my 31 foot Sea Ray. I found the cleanup to be easy and the added perks of giving you a free paint suit, roller, roller handle, pan, tape, and sandpaper was a nice touch as well. I will see how this paint holds up throughout the season.

At this price point, this is a very good product. It does the job, is easy to use and gives full season protection.

1981 Hunter 25. Will haul out in a year and a half to review fully. Loved the water clean up.

Special context-- transitioning from Baltoplate (racing) to a hard ablative to save money and to ease cleaning. Baltoplate was sanded thoroughly with 80 grit, but not removed. That base required three coats of Select (gallon and a third) to cover 30' sailboat. Boat in water 157 days, cleaned every three weeks, then two, then every week at season's end. It was kept in racing condition. My only issue was that some areas of bottom paint eventually chipped off rather than rubbed smooth -- I think it was inadequate sanding. My diver really appreciated the improvement, however, so I will stick with Select next year.

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

I found the product went on surprisingly thin, despite heavy sanding of previous paint (with which it was advertised as compatible) and extensive stirring. As a result I applied three coats. I look forward to assessing effectiveness at the end of the season. If better than anticipated, I will make it known. In the meantime, still awaiting response to my questions to JD by email.
