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.

Far superior to "similar" brands

By Kevin

Verified Buyer

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

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!

worked GREAT for textured deck area on sailboat

By Scooter

from Lake Tahoe , CA

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

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

By Ol Gal

from Florida

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

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

By Jmmparker

from Cape Coral, Florida

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

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.

Easy to apply, takes days to harden off (be patient and give it time). Covers well even after thinning. Apply multiple coats and prep surface as recommended.

excellent paint but Kingston Gray looks like gray primer!

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

Paint was outstanding. would def. use again IN A DIFFERENT COLOR! Kingston gray is almost identical to gray primer color, but glossy. Everyone keeps asking me when i'm going to put the paint over the primer :(

Looks Great. Easy to Use

By BW Chuck

from Lakes Region, NH

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

17ft 1965 Boston Whaler needed a facelift badly. Called Jamestown for some tips and they were very helpful. I followed their recommendations and those of other users on this forum. Packages arrived next day. Unreal!! Hit the deck with Dewaxer. Sanded the boat with 80 grit to get rid of as much chalking as possible, then hit some of the cracks with Total Boat Gelcoat. Used a disposable brush for that per Total Boat video and then sanded again with 80 grit. Dewaxed gelcoat (not sure this is needed, but did it anyway), then hit the entire boat with acetone, again per video. I put on two coats of Total Boat Boston Whaler Blue with foam rollers and foam brushes. Used brushing thinner quite a bit (maybe too much) when the paint started puling. Five stars based on price, service, delivery, ease of use, and clean up. I may revisit this review after the paint sets a bit to see how it wears.

Wood Canvas Canoe - very durable

By Steve

from South East Pennsylvania

Comments about TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint:

This paint stood up to rocks and whitewater on a traditionally filled wood/canvas canoe. I broke some ribs in the boat so the canvas had to be removed, even though the canvas was not damaged by the rocks we hit. What really surprised me was the flexibility of the paint upon removal. Look at the video to see how flexible the paint was - it was almost like rubber.

Painting a skiff craft good but if you don't use all paint the lids don't reseal and paint hardens but other then that it is a great product
