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.

I ended up spraying this paint on my sailboat. I tried rolling and tipping the rudder and I was not happy with the end result. The rolling and tipping method is very difficult to get a smooth finish that has no texture. I chose to spray and found it very difficult to get the correct amount of paint on each coat. I am not happy with having to wait 16+ hours to apply the next coat. The end result was very nice and looks like a factory finish with a great shine and depth. The paint is very durable when it fully dries. I will be using an automotive type paint next time. Automotive paints are tough, UV protected, lay flat, provide a great shine and I can apply the next coat within minutes.

Awesome Paint

This is the first boat that I have painted and once I got the hang of it this paint went on really easy. I have had numerous compliments on the finish I was able to achieve. I didn't have to thin or anything. It flows out beautifully if you are very careful about rolling and tipping! The color chart so far seems really accurate. The sea foam green gets lots of great comments!

Dull after two years of use

One of the best boat paints I've used in terms of application however after two years of use it easily scratches and the sun and salt cause it to lose it's shine. If you're looking for a one year paint this is the one however no more than one year.

Re-painted topside of Catalina 27 Tall Rig. Getting the correct mix of paint and thinner was a little tricky using the marked measuring increments on the plastic mixing cups. My first coat was a bit too thin; second coat better. Heed their advice on using a roller whenever possible. I found it difficult to get the same smooth surface with a brush that I did with the roller. For the second coat I bought several 1 and 2 inch rollers for small areas rather than depending on a brush.

Even when using a foam roller it runs easily.

I do not recommend thinning this product to spray

Thinning with xylene was a bad idea. Should be a better thinning option that won't cause the cure time to take 72+ hours. 80F and 60% humidity. Rolling looks and finishes way better.

We put the Wet Egde "Topside" to the test. The finish is seamless with no smear left behind. We've dropped tools and all kinds of junk on the deck & it's tough & easy to clean.We definitely recommend this product. See ya out there!FIPPS Boatworks SWFL

worked GREAT for textured deck area on sailboat

5

Cleaned, primed and two coats of flat paint worked great on the textured part of sailboat deck. I thinned 10-15% with recommended (100) thinner and brushed/rolled it. I looked long and hard for a non glossy paint. Didn't want something with texture in it either (as deck already had textured surface).

I love this paint just as much as I love Jamestown Distributors. The only thing I buy is Total Boat products because I've been very pleased with what I've used. I wanted to give this paint a 5 star but I couldn't because of one issue I had with it. This paint dries very fast. I rolled and tipped the paint and within 2 to 3 minutes after I painted a small section it became tachy and started to dry. I do not recommend using the paint right out the can without thinning it. If you don't thin it within minutes it's going to start drying on you if it's hot outside. If you don't buy there Jamestown Distributors thinner you can go to your local hardware store and thin this paint with Naphtha. As you can see from the pictures it look like my boat was sprayed but if I don't tell you, you will never no it was rolled and tipped.

Wet Edge Review

This is the second time I've used this product the first time I had problems with it hardening off and as a result it scrap and wore off easily. I am using the paint in SW Florida, high heat and humidy, and called Jamestown for advice to avoid the problem. The service personnel were courteous and helpful. I am waiting to see if their suggestion works. The paint is easy to apply and gives a beautiful finish. Instruction should be included for appling the paint in a broader range of environmental conditions, whi h is the reason for my four star rating, otherwise I would give it a five.
