TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint

TotalBoat Wet Edge is a one-part, high-gloss polyurethane topside finish. This thick, rich topside paint is easy to apply and has excellent coverage characteristics. Advanced UV stabilizers ensure high gloss and color retention. Choose from 21 popular colors in quarts or gallons.

Wet Edge is easy to clean, resists staining, & has incredible abrasion resistance. Our unique urethane formula provides superior adhesion and flexibility, allowing the natural expansion and contraction of your boat's hull without causing the finish to lift or crack. Elasticity provides longer life and increased durability over leading marine one-part enamels.

Brush or spray on fiberglass, wood, or previously painted surfaces above the waterline. For best results, prepare surfaces with TotalBoat Topside Primer.

Select colors are now available in pints, perfect for boot stripes.

The product quality is high, but the color "fire red" is really "clown nose" red. Was hoping for a richer, slightly darker, red. The color chips both on line and in the printed material are not really accurate. If you want a seriously bright red, this is the color for you. I only make this a "no" recommendation because I bought this based on the chip color, paid to ship it, put it on a test piece, and it was seriously wrong. Not "oops...I don't like that color". That would be my fault and I'd take the $$ hit and move on. This was bad color on the printed chips.

Paint was easy to use and covered great. Boat was transformed from old and faded to almost new look. Very happy with purchase and product. Used a brush to trim and a roller to finish. Looks great !!! Only downside was my error. I used brush on side walls and applied paint too thick. Had some run marks. Had to sand and then roll, looks good but I made extra work.

Painted the deck and cockpit of a MonArk 14 sailboat - started off originally with Pettit EzPoxy and had some real issues with flow rate, drying and sagging. Re-sanded the boat and switched to Wet Edge and wish now I had used it first - what a difference. Much easier to work with and the flow rate was great - I thinned per directions and had plenty of time to work with the wet edge, no sagging and it dried quickly. Also, I just rolled it, didn't tip it and it looks amazing - high gloss shine and smooth. Highly recommend.

Made sure you get thinner to help it flow...

Time will tell how durable it is, but the application of two coats went well. Make sure you get the thinner to help paint flow. It starts to dry very quickly and as noted in intructions, do not plan to apply a second coat until it has completely dried.

We used this paint on our 1957 wooden Chris craft cruiser gloss black top sides. Wet edge was easy to apply with the role and tip method, and the results were smooth and beautiful! The finish is durable and glossy.

Rebuilding a 14' Carolina Skiff. The surface is a combination of old gelcoat, new fiberglass (polyester resin), and filler. All surfaces were sanded and primed with two coats of Totalboat Topside Primer. No problems here- primer applied easily and cured well. Paint was applied after primer (3 coats of Wet Edge Topside- Boston Whaler Blue). Some nonskid areas, some smooth areas. Paint applied easily and cured beautifully. Very vibrant color and easy to get even coats (roll & tip). However, the smooth surfaces scratch very easily, due to hooks/fish/tools coming into contact with the paint. Disclaimer: I am a novice boatbuilder/painter, and I followed exact instructions for primer and paint application. I plan on covering the boat with gelcoat next.

I wanted to like this paint because I have found every other Total Boat product to be excellent. I started rolling and tipping this paint. Found it very hard to keep a wet edge. Add too much of their thinner and it runs, too little and it skins too fast, I just could not find a sweet spot to work with it. I switched gears and tried rolling only, I used one of Jamestown's foam rollers and the finish was pretty good. Lots of shine but a little too much texture for me. I tried spraying, it wants to stay fairly thick even when thinned with the recommended Xylene, again I couldn't find a sweet spot, too thin and it runs, too thick and it doesn't spray well. In the end I rolled it and found that it color sands quite well. I went over it with 1000 and the 1500 grit, polished and waxed it and voila a very good finish. I have painted using many different paints over the years, both one and two part. Brightside is easier to work than this paint, I think I will use it next time rather than Total Boat Wet Edge.
