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 am restoring a 1966 Boston Whaler Sakonett. The interior was filthy and the gel coat in poor condition and highly oxidized. Tried the buffing route but not happy. I was leery about using 2 part epoxy paints and settled on TotalBoat Wet Edge Top Coat in Boston Whaler Blue. Like any paint job, the prep is critical to the final appearance. After extensive cleaning, degreasing, filling holes and gouges and a final sanding with 180 grit I primed with TotalBoat high solids primer (also a one part product). I used a dense foam roller to apply the primer. Great product! Sanded with 220 grit and applied the top coat. I used the same dense foam rollers and tipped lightly with several inexpensive (throw away) brushes as I went along. I used around 1 and 1/4 quarts on the first coat. I will be applying a second coat. TotalBoat Wet Edge is simple, fast, covers well and EASY to apply. Dries very glossy, hard and within 12-15 hours at 70 degrees and 20% humidity at the time. GREAT PAINT at a very fair price point.

Had a marginal experience with Interlux Brightside about 10 years ago and swore I would never use one-part poly topside paint again. Saw the great reviews for this product and decided to try it; unfortunately, it was a mistake. I have used Awlgrip, Interlux Perfection, and Epifanes two-part poly; all are great products. With the one-part products, either you don't thin it and it doesn't flow well, or you thin it and it doesn't dry or cover well. I used a bit too much Interlux 333 thinner on my first coat and it was disastrous. I added a little at a time until I felt it was flowing adequately; but the paint sagged and took a week to dry. Don't be scared of two-part paints, they are worth the extra money anytime and are easier to use and result in a more durable and nicer looking product. Not sure if I got a skunk quart, but I could not get this stuff to work for me AT ALL. Really wishing I went with two-part paint but I learned my lesson again.

      Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

      I used a grey two part primer. The top coat is yellow. After 3 coats of the yellow. The primer could be seen through the top coat. I called the help line to determine if I was over thinning the paint (8-10%). They said I was thinning correctly and should continue with the top coats. I have 5 coats on an still can see some grey.
      I wish the the paint co. recommended the use of a white or tinted primer.

      Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

      Be patient!!! I live in Florida and bought Wet Edge to roll and tip method. Now at first on my can it says no thinning needed with the roll and tip so I didn't. and yes the boat was well beyond prepared for paint application. It seriously took 2 weeks to dry and it was perfect weather in Florida for those 2 weeks(thank god). After paint did finally dry it does look good but just took too long to fully cure. I have sprayed since with xylene and they"ll tell you 10-15% and still its 3 days at that so bump it up to 20% for 1-2 day dry time. Other than the extensive wait time looks good overall. I bought the Black Wet Edge Topside paint, buyer beware Black shows every imperfection, scratch, or nic.

      Hands On Deck is a small boat shop that teaches kids and adults how to build wooden boats, and take care of them. We love JD and Total Boat since it allows us to keep our cost down. I don't think we could afford our programs without Total Boat and JD!

          Exceeded my expectaions. Boston Whaler blue came out with a high gloss using roll and tip method. Very vibrant, cool color. used it on an old 15ft. Shell Lake skiff restoration project and painted the hull. Only used less than one quart with two coats. Covered well and easy to use with 10% paint thinner. Will see how it stands up to the elements (fresh water).

            I used this paint on a 1968 Boston Whaler 13 I'm restoring, so I purchased the Boston Whaler Blue color. Online ordering is super simple, and my order arrived within just a few days. I chose to brush it on for my application, but there are other methods to try, as well. Apply it thinly, and watch as it smooths itself out and dries with a nice, bright, colorful shine! This paint is affordable and seems to be very high quality. I just painted it a couple of weeks ago, so I can't attest to its longevity, but other reviews I read before purchasing were very positive. Looking forward to hitting the water soon!

                Applied over Gluvit which I used to cover about 1000 surface cracks in old gel coat on a 1968 13' Whaler. Very important to prep well and wait the required time between coats. Applied primarily with a foam roller and sanded lightly between coats.

                    Refurbished a badly-cracked 1968 13' Whaler interior, applying Gluvit to the non-tread part of the interior, light sanding, then about 4 coats. It doesn't look quite as good as the professional video which carved out each crack and filled it, sanded, etc. But, it is very close. I did not fill the tread area but did paint it 4 coats with the product, which does not fill cracks very well (nor is it intended to do so). The boat looks great and the tread area retained its tread.
