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.

Perfect for motorcycle track bodywork too!!!

I work seasonally for a Harbormaster department on Cape Cod and am quite familiar with turning our fleet of boats from tired looking work horses to showroom grade masterpieces using various brands of topside paints, but mostly the Petit brand.My hobby is doing track days with my sportbike motorcycles and after an early season mishap, I was ready to paint a full set of new fiberglass fairings/bodywork. I know I might destroy the bodywork again or even worse, so I was not looking to pay upwards of $1,500 to have the bodywork professionaly painted. I have plastidip'd an entire bike in the past and it's perfect for track use but that stuff hates gasoline drips or solvents touching it. I was looking for something cheap, good DIY'er application, and durable. Using topside paints at my Harbormaster job caused me come up with the great idea to try the paint application we use on the boats for my latest motorcycle bodywork project.I settled upon Totalboat Wet Edge after a recommendation from a coworker who was restoring an old 13' Boston Whaler. And the price for a quart was well within my budget.I read a lot of reviews here and also had my own trial and errors until I discovered what worked best for my use/needs.Prep: I found wet sanding at 320 grit was good for roughing up the bodywork primer and knocking down any flaws in the panels. I then cleaned the bodywork with alocohol or mineral spirits, let that evaporate, then go over all of it with a tack cloth, ready for painting.Painting: I found just rolling with a mini-foam roller was all that was necessary for me. Experimenting revealed that after 48 hours of curing, I could wet sand down to super fine grits of 1500 and 2000 and then attack the pieces with my orbital buffer and achieve a perfectly level and high gloss finish. I ultimately settled on thinning with 10% mineral spirits and applying a thick last coat with the roller. It cured nearly level and better than some automotive finished churned out these days.

I bought a quart of Seafoam a year ago but due to extended illness didn't get to use until a week ago. When I removed shipping clips and opened the can, paint was totally hard like a block of epoxy. I called and spoke with Rick who was very helpful and he sent out a replacement can which I received 36 hours later. Jamestown's excellent service makes them my top choice for marine supplies!Now for the paint, I rolled and tipped. You do have to work fast to keep a wet edge. It was tacky (no paint on finger when touching) 2 hours later but did take a full 2 days before hard enough to sand for second coat. Finish has a real nice high gloss and if feels very durable. I anticipate it will last many more years than the Kirby enamel I originally had on boat. I will definitely be using this paint again!

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.
