I'd like to paint my whaler floor. Is this paint appropriate?
JD Tech Team
Can this be painted over a Pettit Easy Poxy polyurethane topside paint?
I do not know, I painted right to the fiberglass
I sanded my entire hull and then used the two part boston whaler paint. Didnt have to sand over again to add 2nd coat. The paint is top notch. Love the final look and result. I painted my boat over 6 months ago and it looks sparkly shinny. Dont know if u could go over and already painted surface with a different product. I would maybe do a light sand with fine grit sand paper and add 2 coats.
how much paint should I get for a 17ft whaler?
thomas j smith
I used two for two coats on a 13ft
two will do it unless you want two coats. also depends on your surface finish that you are painting, fiberglass soaks it up. I use 2 when i did my 13ft whaler and had enough for a lighter second coat
The inside of a 13 ft whaler (blue) used 1 can of 2 part epifanes epoxy paint for 1 coat. If you are paining the inside of a 17 ft whaler and it will take 2 coats. I would buy 3 cans.
I have a 13 foot Whaler. How much do I need to cover the topside?
I purchased one 750ml kit and was able to cover the entire inside of the hull, but there was virtually no left over paint, so I recommend being careful to spread the paint as evenly as possible. My experience was that the paint started hardening very quickly as i was applying it. It was hard to brush after putting a load on the boat. I'm not sure what the problem was. It was possibly due to the high ambient temperature or to the fact that I waited the prescribed time after mixing before applying (30 minutes I think was the time the instructions stated) and the catalyzation process was starting. Still the results were outstanding - so I do still recommend this product.
It takes 1 quart to cover the topside (blue part) once. The coverage the can says over estimates the coverage. I used 2 quarts of the 2 part epoxy to do 2 coats.
It 2 cans for my 1963 13' classic whaler. That was over primer. Goes on pretty thin.
I used 2, as I put it on a little thicker and added some sand to it, I would believe that 1 should be enough if it's a lighter coat and also depends how much gets soaked into the fiberglass
I put two coats and to do it right you'll need two kitsThanksScott
is this can (750ml) enough for two full coats of a 13' Whaler?
I applied this product by HVLP spray. I also split the kit by weight. When thinned and sprayed this was enough to apply two coats to the interior of a Whaler 13'. I find best results with a minimum of five coats applied.
Hi No you will need two full kits to do it properly but you will be very satisfied with this product I bought one and had to order another. The color was perfect and the paint was very durable and easy to use I primed it with the high build interlux I think it was called something 2000but it turned out greatGood luck Scott
Not two full coats. You would need about a can and a half
No, if you do a really nice even thicker coat you'll use up the entire can... Really great looking and durable. Also if you plan on putting in non skid like I did, I did a first coat and sprinkled course grit then recoated, it cut down on the roughness but still better traction than the fine gritStefan stein
In my experience the 750 ml can was enough for two coats on the either the exterior of the hull or the interior - but not the entire hull inside and out.
how much area will this cover? I have a 1964 13 foot classic, will this cover the interior?
It could cover the area depending on how thick you put it on. On my 1978 13ft I used 1.5 and the other 0.5 as touch up, it's an epoxy so it has strength and will help the boat
I'd like to see the shade of blue. Are there any images of this product after application? Thanks.
Please send me your email adress and I will be about to send you a photo of the color that is now on my boat
It is a light blue. Looks great. Boat is under wraps now, but maybe I can send a photo on a day when it is not snowing! Hmmm how do I send a photo without an e-mail address? Boat was out in the Buzzard's Bay sun all summer. Paint still looks great. Go for it!
I was "cleaning up" an old 1968 17' Whaler Montauk in my summer fleet (we have seven boats) and decided to paint it inside and out. I bought some epoxy paint from West Marine but the color just wasn't right, kind of a light blue. I went online and saw Jamestown had developed the "authentic" Whaler blue. It wasn't cheap, it took two cans, but it looked sensational. The guy I had paint it had never worked with it before but he read the directions and it came our perfect.

Excellent paint, easy to use
this stuff was great. Restoring a 58 Whaler and wanted the right color paint for the interior. I was worried about coverage when I first started, brushed the whole thing. 1 quart did the first coat with no problem. 1/2 quart was enough to recoat. With the brush thinner it lays on nice and thin, and leaves no brush marks. Use in a well ventilated area.
Did not like application of product
First 750 ml applied had blue spots with in paint. Attributed to operator error insufficient mixing. Mixed and boxed second 750 ml with same results blue spots. Third application of 750 ml came out ok with no blue spots.
I would buy this product. Top notch results and quality
Very much satisfied! Paint looks brand new even after 6 months. My boat looks like i painted it yesterday.

Couldn't be happier
I used this as the topcoat over the two part primer on my 1967 13' Whaler restoration project. The color is dead nuts on, and the stuff is pretty easy to work with, but do plan on having plenty of ventilation (or being light headed for a few hours). I brushed this on, and it smooths right out. 2 coats and the boat looked brand new. As with any paint job, prep is key- the second coat will cover only the finest of hairline cracks in underlying gelcoat. I would buy this again from Jamestown. This was the first time I have used Epifanes 2 part polyurethane, and I am a fan.
