Question

I have a 1971 13' whaler classic would the qt be enough to do a 2-3 coats or am I better off with the gallon

Asked on 06/11/2018 by Anthony sis from oceanport nj

Top Answer

This depends on whether you are doing the entire boat or just the deck, or the hull. This kit is 2 quarts, which will yield about 160 sq ft of material for one coat, or 80 sq ft for 2 coats, and just over 50 sq ft for 3 coats of product. You can figure out how many square feet that your project is by measuring the length x width of the area, and generally calculate 10% going to waste (left in the brush, bottom of a paint tray, accidental drips, etc).

Answer

2 Qt

Answered on 06/11/2018 by patrag40

Answer

Depends on whether you are painting the whole boat - inside and outside? If you are just painting the inside, then you could probably get away with the QT kit and be able to finish 2 coats, as long as you reduced the primer with 2 oz of epoxy reducer. Mix half the product for each coat. If you plan to epoxy the whole boat, then get the gallon kit. That will definitely be enough for 2 coats on the whole boat. Still I recommend using the reducer to help spread it out better.

Answer

A very thin product that goes a long way, you may have enough. It says a quart size but they are each full quarts so you get a half gallon when mixed together. Also temperature is important, cooler temps allow the coats to lay down very smooth, higher will leave brush marks.

Question

I used half on a canoe I built last year. Half can has been sitting for a year. Will it be good to use still?

Asked on 12/22/2020 by Travis from ID

Top Answer

As long as both parts are smooth and mixable it is likely to cure properly. As others have suggested it's a good idea to mix up a tiny amount to see how it cures. Be sure to stir part a and part b separately before you mix them together.

Doing a major refinish of my hull. I won't use the Total Boat Total Protect Epoxy Barrier Coat System until next summer right before I paint the bottom. I want to make sure that if I use the Total Boat 2-Part Epoxy Primer now, there won't be a problem putting the Barrier Coat over it next summer.

There is no maximum time. Allow it to cure for at least 24hours. Then you can sand it according to the topcoat instructions and wipe it down and paint.

Question

Do you sell a short nap roller that doesn't dissolve in the two part epoxy primer after 30-45 minutes use?

Asked on 02/16/2018 by Mike from fairhaven,ma.

Top Answer

We do sell Epoxy Plus roller covers which are 1/8" foam roller covers. They will suffer the same fate as all other rollers after a while, but they will last longer than the cheap ones.

Question

What is the difference between surfacing and high-build epoxy primer? Which is best for used for repairing crazed gelcoat on decks?

Asked on 02/04/2018 by Myles from Annapolis

Top Answer

Hi Myles, high build epoxy primer can be built up to a thicker mil thickness in a period of time than the surfacing primer. Crazed gelcoat must be filled with thickened epoxy or an epoxy fairing material before priming. Either primer would be suitable, but if the surface needs a little extra build for fine fairing, the high build would be recommended. The surfacing type would be better if the surface was perfectly fair, where it would act as an epoxy tie coat primer.
