TotalBilge is a long-lasting, epoxy-based bilge paint specifically formulated to protect your bilge, bulkhead, and locker areas. The constant exposure to harmful marine elements like heat, humidity, mildew, grease and grime requires a superior bilge barrier solution to resist moisture and repel most oils, acids, alkyds and solvents right on the spot.
When compared to the top brand name bilge paints, TotalBilge stands up to the test. The single-component paint is easy to apply, dries quickly, and provides excellent coverage with a much harder surface finish. In addition, TotalBilge is easy to clean and does not lift, mildew, or stain over time.
Available in Gray & White colors, in Quart and Gallon sizes.
|Thinning (Brush/Roll)||Shouldn't need thinning on fiberglass or primed surfaces. Use TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100: 5-10% to increase flow in warm conditions; 1st coat on bare wood substrates should be thinned 10%.|
|Thinning (Spray)||TotalBoat Spray Thinner 101, 10-20%, if desired|
|Primer||TotalBoat TotalProtect - only mandatory on metals, but may be used on properly prepared wood and fiberglass, if desired.|
|Cleanup||TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100, TotalBoat Spray Thinner 101, or TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep|
|Coverage||250-300 sq. ft. per gallon|

Took forever to dry and I'm still not sure it is completely. I bought 2 quarts and the color difference between the two was extreme. Make sure you mix.

I used this product on the bilge/interior of a 1990 J22 with excellent results.

I've painted the entire bilge areas of my Pearson 35CB with TOTAL BILGE Brush or roller it goes on well and drys fast

I've been using it in the sail locker and other storage areas. It goes on easily and depending on the color/condition of what's underneath, one coat is often enough. I haven't tried it in the actual bilge yet, although I noted an answer to one of the questions which stated that it isn't suitable for continuous submersion in water - strange for bilge paint! Anyway, I just ordered another gallon so I guess that says enough.

We used the TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy paint to refinish a concrete birdbath that we and the birds have grown fond of. Our last refinish was with a two-part epoxy, with reasonable results. However, from the time the first brush of TotalBilge Epoxy hit the concrete, it appears to be a superior product. After nearly a month of use, including two freeze events, this refinish job remains unfazed by the water, the sun, the frost, and the bird droppings. Time will tell, but things certainly look promising a month into the refinish job. We did take special care to repair several cracks with epoxy, and to either remove the prior paint or to rough it up thoroughly for best adhesion of the TotalBilge Epoxy.

Was pleasantly surprised on how well this product performs in application, coverage and black and white hiding capabilities. Boat project is still ongoing so do not know yet how product will perform once in actual use with your typical bilge liquids. Only negative is its dry time, a little too slow, wish it was faster (i.e. 4 - 6 hrs @ 60F) dry thru time.

Flowed out nicely. It is pretty thick but still does well. I did not think it took an excessively long time to cure. It does have a powerful odor and requires ventilation.

Works great , love the belly of my boat painted white vs black .. for the fact if something is leaking now I can see it … 1 coat looks great I'm going to do 2 coats cause I have a lot left from a quart … goes along ways ..
