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 bought a plywood dory that had leaks in the stern and a checked hull. I scraped the hull, filled the stern separation and painted the hull and stern with Topside primer and paint. I am very happy with the finish. I recommend using the brushing thinner to get a smooth application. This little boat is going to cut through the water with less effort and I won't be bailing it out. Plus it looks great, soI'll be getting lots of compliments.

First off I am an experienced painter, but I have only painted a few boats. I am not an expert but I am not new either. Below is what I think will help others base don my experience.1. 50° is optimistic, my first coat was put on in a heated shop at 57 - 60 degrees. I wound up sanding it off. In my experience 65 is a more realistic minimum temperature. 2. The instructions say to sand between coats and wipe down with the special thinner 100. The thinner caused my paint to peel. I had better results with a lint cloth, water and waiting an hour.3. The instructions say it may be thinned, they should say it must be thinned. I had poor results, brush marks, running, etc. until I thinned to 15%4. Even using epoxy primer it took me 3 coats to achieve consistent coverage. Once I learned all of these "lessons" I was finally able to get good results. I plan to use it on two other boat projects. My past boat painting experience has been with paints that cost way more than wet edge. For the money it's a great product.

Using this in Hatteras white on my old whalers' interior. Primed first w TBoat primer. Very satisfied with the way the paint flows and covers thinned with totalboat brushing thinner. Only complaint is that JD should publish a paint color chart so the customer can get a better idea of the true paint color. I probably would have chosen paint a little "less" white. Cant really get an accurate color representation on a computer monitor. Overall I am very pleased w my purchase.

Painted a Penobscot 14 with it. I brushed it on and it leveled out with hardly noticable brush strokes. I've used Interlux Brightside and WetEdge has the edge.

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.

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.
