Painted my inflatable boat bottom in the beginning of spring. Kept the boat in the water all summer hauled it today and marine growth was minimal. The boat was kept at a marina near Lake Erie in fresh water. I recommend this product.

Being water based really helps with cleanup and multiple applications.

Application was a snap. The true test will be when I pull my dinghy out of the water at the end of the season and see how easy it is to clean. Wish I had done this years ago.

I used Forespar's waxy "green" product meant for inflatables and prop shafts-terrible, both covered with all kinds of marine growth at the end of the season. This year for the first time I used the Total Boat inflatable bottom paint. The dinghy remained in the water for about 3 months and when hauled at the end of the season, it had only a thin film of slime on the bottom that came off with a sponge as well as a minor green "beard" at the stern waterline that needed a little elbow grease and a Scotch Brite. The bottom cleaning took about 10 minutes vs. 2 hours last year. Oh, and I only used 1 quart for two coats so I'll get another season out of it.

You just need to make sure the boat is clean and dry before you paint. This is the way to go if you plan on leaving your inflatable in the water. It went on better than other similar paints I've used in the past. While the dinghy stays on the dock when we aren't on the boat, it comes with us pretty much everywhere since we sail to Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Long Island etc in the warmest months, so antifouling paint on a pvc boat is NOT the frivolity one might think.

I'll need to wait until the end of season for final evaluation. It went on very easily after wiping inflatable bottom down with alcohol as recommended by the video.

Applied this dinghy paint just last week, so I don't know how it will hold up. It was easy to apply the two coats. Waited four hours between coats and another day before launching per the directions.

I bought this at the recommendation of the Jamestown paint technician. Applied it as directed and in the recommended conditions. Paint started flaking same day. Called Jamestown and was told a paint technician would call me. I never heard from them. Will avoid Jamestown from now on.
