Pettit EZ Poxy Topside Boat Paint

Pettit EZ-Poxy (formerly Easypoxy) is a highly rated, one-part polyurethane topside paint improved by the addition of silicone for a brilliant shine and easy brushability. It also contains ultraviolet filters to enhance the already superior gloss retention and durability of polyurethane.

This results in a topside finish that is exceptionally easy to apply and produces a lasting gelcoat-like brilliance with minimum effort.

EZ- Poxy is available in gloss white, semi-gloss white, and twenty-two popular and glossy topside colors.

Same great paint—new name & new colors

The topside paint you've come to know and trust—Easypoxy—has a new name: EZ-Poxy. Though the name has changed slightly, this is still the same one-part, high-gloss polyurethane paint with superior gloss and gloss retention, and dependable durability in all weathers.

In addition, Pettit is introducing 7 colors that are tried and true topside finish standards:

  • Blue Glow White 3176
  • Mediterranean White 3184
  • Hatteras Cream 3208
  • Dark Blue 3290
  • Dull Dead Grass 3303
  • Fighting Lady Yellow 3456
  • Seattle Gray 3715

NOTE: Pettit has also changed the names of 6 of its existing colors as follows:

  • Gloss White 3175 is now White 3175
  • Off-White 3108 is now Hatteras Off-White 3108
  • Electric Blue 3237 is now Electric Sapphire Blue 3237
  • Newport Green 3333 is now Seafoam Green 3333
  • Bright Red 3624 is now Fire Red 3624
  • Dark Gray 3720 is now Steel Gray 3720

So for example, if you want to use up the rest of your Bright Red 3624, but don't have enough to complete your project, now you'll order Fire Red 3624. It's the same color, it just has a new, more descriptive name.


The surface must be free of dirt, loose paint, rust, oil, grease, wax, soap and any other foreign matter before painting. Clean painted areas by washing with a solution of 2 cups household ammonia per gallon of water and rinse well. Remove existing mildew with household bleach instead of ammonia.


Stir thoroughly before use. EZ-Poxy may be applied by brush, roller, conventional spray, or airless spray. For brush or roller application, apply without thinning, although in hot weather 5-10% Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner may be added to maintain a wet edge. For best results on large, smooth surfaces, roll out using a short nap roller followed immediately by leveling off with the tip of a brush.

For conventional spray application thin 15-20% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner. Apply one, thin even coat per day. After an overnight dry, lightly sand with 220-grit sandpaper and apply a second coat.

Applying two or more coats in one day or applying excessively heavy films (greater than 4 mils wet) will lead to insufficient through-drying of the paint and will yield soft paint films. For airless spray application, thin up to 5% with Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner.

Utilize a .011-.015 inch diameter tip for application. Do not apply EZ-Poxy on extremely humid days (90°F+ RH) or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet film may be adversely affected by dew. When working in cooler temperatures, be sure the air and surface temperatures will remain at or above 50°F for at least 8 hours after application.

5 Stars for Jamestown, 1 Star for Pettit's poor color match


I am very disappointed in how the Mediterranean White color does not match the color chip at all! It is many shades lighter than the chip (see photo). It is even worse in person. Any suggestions on how to get a closer match? Several have commented that this paint should not be tinted (can it, with out affecting it's properties?). It is only being used on a very small area, so it is not cost effective to purchase one or more cans of other colors to use as tints.On the other hand, I am very pleased with Jamestown Distributors. This was my first order, and everything was perfect and on time. Thank you!


San Juan Capistrano, CA

very nice


covered with one coat




needed only one coat


This paint covered extremely well




Excellent product - Used many times


I have used this above and below the water line for boats that don't stay moored for long periods and never have a problem with this paint. It's easy to apply, leaves a nice finish and very durable.




Great product,coverag was excellent,vey durable finish.

Bristol RI


I buy this product again and again!!


I build Sand Trays for therapeutic use and need a strong paint which stands up to rinsing with water.


Brandywine, MD


What a great product!


I have been investigating existing products for coating the storage spaces in my 28 Rampage and was excited to see Petit not only came up with a great easy epoxy finish but it actually was available in the original color of my boat. It went on as easy as any paint and the result looks and wears like gelcoat. Any boat owner knows the feeling when they find something that works obetter than expected and this one definitely fits that description!

I like this boat paint !!


I had really agonized on what to use on a VERY old oxidized water slide that was given to me. I dreaded trying to use an epoxy mix .....When I viewed the instructional side by side video Jamestown website had of three paints on a kite board, I decided to give this topside boat paint a try. It was very easy to apply, very shiny and slick with minimal brush stokes visible ... I put two coats with plans for 3rd but grand kids came over and had to try it out ... looks great �
