TotalBoat AlumiPaint AF is a copper-free antifouling that combines Econea with a zinc biocide for powerful, full-season protection on pontoons and aluminum hulls. This unique co-polymer ablative wears away over time, continuously exposing fresh paint for maximum protection against barnacles, mussels and slime.
Specifically formulated for use on pontoon boats, it provides superior coverage, durability and performance. Apply 1 to 2 coats per season over previously painted surfaces in good condition, or over properly primed bare aluminum. It is also suitable for use on outdrives and running gear to minimize the risk of galvanic corrosion.
Available in Quarts and Gallons in Black and Navy Blue. As a bonus, you'll receive a free roller & metal tray kit, free paint suit with hood, a pair of large latex gloves, and a wooden stir stick (a $10 value).

Proper preparation and priming of bare aluminum is critical for paint performance and to prevent corrosion. Unprotected aluminum corrodes rapidly in salt or brackish waters. Even freshwater salinity can pose problems. We recommend priming with TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat.
Thinning: Xylene (Xylol)
Cleanup: Xylene (Xylol) or TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep
Primer: TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat
Is a primer recommended for use on a new unpainted pontoon Boat (aluminum)? ... which primer product?How much would adequately cover the bottom of 2 pontoons (24'x25")?
Use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat Primer first on unpainted aluminum. A gallon will cover about 400 sq ft per coat.

I need a decent aluminum antifouling paint for a old 16' aluminum Lund that's in the water all summer. It's just used as a knock about. Your product sounds like just the answer. But when I read that you suggested a barrier coat be applied... I thought to myself you have to be kidding me. That's not going to happen... I've done that to two larger fiberglass hulls I own and it's a beast of a job under ideal circumstances. Anyway what do you suggest as an happy medium to achieve a decent bond, but not the ideal epoxy coat prepped bond. it's bare aluminum now. Light sand, and maybe Totalboat Dewaxer/Surface prep...Please advise.Thanks, Jim Albani, Essex MA
Jim,If you are down to bare aluminum, a light sand and clean with the Dewaxer/Surface prep and a coat or two of the Alumipaint will work well.

BEST DEAL on the MARKET today
Ive owned my 1963 36 foot aluminum Roamer since 1972. Ive run the gamut of painting and even sandblasting the old crud off a dozen times. The new TotalBoat Aluminum AF went on right over the top of the Interlux Trilux II without a hitch. The expensive stuff barely lasts a season (6 months on a river off of Lake Mich. in Wisconsin). The TB went all last year and after a power wash at haulout this fall looked ABSOLUTELY as fresh as the day it went on! even at the scum line. Only 4-5 zebra mussels on unpainted transducer surfaces. Not even ONE spec of white corrosion. Repairs to failure spots were always the norm with other products. I was impressed. So much in fact that I think Jamestown should send me a free gallon to offset the costs of the other 40 years worth of expensive paints. LOL. I am gonna try other TotalBoat products from now on. Anything to comp against KIWI deck paint or Interlux Perfections? ws

Very good product
24 foot Aluminum pontoon boat about 20 years old...I painted this over another more expensive brand that I have been using for years. Probably did not follow all instructions...regarding primers, super sanding, etc., that might have been suggested. One coat in February 2016 and put in water that month. Took out in Jan., 2017. Lease amount of barnacles ever. Lightly pressure washed off the slimy layer. Ready to paint again. Fixin to order some more. Very good product.

I liked the product and I would buy it again.
Good product, the pontoons are still clean even though most other boats are having buildup of lake residue.
