TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint

TotalBilge is a long-lasting, epoxy-based bilge paint specifically formulated to protect your bilge, bulkhead, and locker areas. The constant exposure to harmful marine elements like heat, humidity, mildew, grease and grime requires a superior bilge barrier solution to resist moisture and repel most oils, acids, alkyds and solvents right on the spot.

When compared to the top brand name bilge paints, TotalBilge stands up to the test. The single-component paint is easy to apply, dries quickly, and provides excellent coverage with a much harder surface finish. In addition, TotalBilge is easy to clean and does not lift, mildew, or stain over time.

Available in Gray & White colors, in Quart and Gallon sizes.

Bonus: Each order includes 2 stir sticks, 2 QT size paint pots, and 1 pair of latex gloves - a $10 value.

Total Bilge-The Best

This paint is the best, goes down easy on a properly prep'd surface, smooth and hard as nails. Use anywhere you need a long lasting hard surface finish.

This product is promoted as a bilgepaint. However, I do not know of many vessels where you have easy access to the entire bilge that would allow you to sand between coats. Thus the three star rating. I can picture someone using a roller requiring an extended handle attempting to get down to the bottom of the bilge in a sailbat or under an engingine between beams, and then attempting to find ways to sand between coats. That being said, only one other similar product that JD sells does not suggest that sanding is required, but I would advise calling the manufacturer in that case.

Finally, would I buy it agan - definately not since a areas of the bilge in my boat require special techniques just to be covered with paint. Accordingly, I would recommend using West Epoxy with a coloring agent, and applying a second coat, if necessary, once the first coat is tacky. I have made fiberglass over plywood diesel tanks using West Epoxy and they have lasted for years, accordingly, I would expect the same kind of results if I used epoxy in the bilge.

    Comments about TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint:

    I used this to paint the engine room walls and I'm very pleased with the way the paint went on (rolled) and flowed out. I added 120ml of the gray to one Gal of white to tone it down just slightly. My goal was to have bright/reflective walls without appearing to stark....mission accomplished! The next phase will be to repaint the bilge.

    Comments about TotalBoat TotalBilge Epoxy Bilge Paint:

    Paint went on easily and dried slick and smooth. I sanded and used the 2 part primer first. I think one coat would have been sufficient but decided to do two coats to make sure I did not miss any spots.

          Nice single part epoxy bilge paint. It spread evenly with good coverage in just a coat. I did a small area where my engine intakes are and I did a 2nd coat as directed (to be safe). The gray is darker than the original gray color of my bilge, but looks great compartment area I painted.

            Prep is important to a hood job with proper adhesion. If your not going to sand and wipe everything down you may not be happy with the results. I feel two coats in needed for a top job. Goes a really long way.

              Very easy to apply. I used a six-inch roller for large areas, and a two-inch chip brush for corners and edges. I kept the boat well ventilated aid used a respirator.

                Very easy to use. I used both a 4-inch roller and a paint brush for edges and corners. Inside my boat with two fans going (exhaust and supply), a respirator is mandatory.
                Coverage is light, but directions recommend multiple coats; I plan on applying three.

                      I used TotalBilge Paint over epoxy repairs to my hull on the inside. It went on smoothly and covered easily with one coat. My bilge looks like new again. The painted surface seems very tough. Walking around on it and dropping tools has not produced a single scratch. So far, I am very impressed.

                        I applied two coats to both sides of a 6 square foot battery/oil tank board after removing it from the boat. Paint applied evenly and left a nice finish. I suggest strong ventilation if applying in a bilge area; the fumes are very strong.
