Good Bottom Protection
By Rahbaba from Moriches, Long Island, NY

Verified Purchase

Painted my boat bottom a month ago, and launched it into salt water bays of Long Island. It's been floating at it's mooring daily, and the bottom is still clean as of July 4, weekend. The Spartan was easy to apply, and compatible with the previous bottom paint, so no sanding was needed.

We use Spartan every year
By Daniel from Bristol, RI

Verified Purchase

Family sailboat gets a fresh coat of Spartan every spring. It dries fast, too, so you aren't down at the marina all day. It has performed well every season, despite the harbor's notorious fouling conditions.

TotalBoat Spartan Ablative - Highly recommend
By JM from Portsmouth, RI

Verified Purchase

Spartan is a multi season ablative paint. I have been using this paint for years and I reapply each season to have fresh coverage. This paint keeps the bottom clear of all growth and at the end of season easily clean the bottom. Easy to roll, good coverage, drys quickly and great color. Because this paint is used every year one gallon almost covers a 38ft boat Only negative: difficult clean up. You will want a protective suit, face mask and goggles. At the end of "paint day" all trays, rollers, brushes and protective gear are thrown out. I no longer attempt any clean up on these items.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great coverage
By kt from Catawba Island , Ohio

Verified Purchase

My boat is on Lake Erie I bottom paint every other year with touch ups in between. First time using one gallon covered my 310 DA. hull with some left over. Rolled on easy with the medium nap roller. Choose not to use the roller that was provided because it's to big for my application it dried in a short time. Mineral sprites clean it up with no problems. Low VOC considering it was bottom paint even thought I was using it inside a heated building. Was able to take the paint can to a local paint store and had it shook up.

Springs just around the corner

Inferior product
By Big Flatty from South FL

Verified Purchase

I have had a fiber glass 24'6 Tcraft in the water for 22 years now. I have grinded and painted the bottom every year and tried a few different antifouling paints. This was by far the worst I have used for quality and pricing. The west mine gold was better than this product.. I had a full bottom of barnacles after 2 weeks.. spend the money and get interlux or petit its worth it..

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
