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, and 2 QT size paint pots - a $10 value.

Very Nice


It seems to cover nice and really looks good. I just put the product on my boat so I don't know how well it will last. It really does seem like a tough product.

I would purchase this product again, and did.


I am restoring an early 1961 Pearson Triton, I'm using the total bilge product to cover painted plywood features in the cabin, along with fiberglass and the bilge area. The product is working as described, but give some extra time to dry. I put back some recessed plywood access panels after a few days of drying, and when I went to remove themthey stuck a bit to the other painted surface, I touched up a few of the contact areas, let dry several more days and everything seems fine. The wood was old and dry so I did apply two pretty thick coats. I need to see how durable the painted surfaces will be.

I Plan To Order More


I used it on a 19 Ft, 25 year old fiberglass boat to seal the inside of storage compartments that are exposed to water. I also coated a sheet of marine plywood that fits inside a seat I was repairing. In addition I used it on the plywood surrounding a wet well compartment. In some places the original gel coat had cracked. I first sealed the cracks with white 3M 5200 sealant. Then applied the TotalBilge Epoxy paint over everything. It stuck to the 3M sealer without any problems. The areas I painted look like new again. My only con is that I would have preferred a satin finish versus the gloss finish. If you don't cover any fine cracks with the 3M 5200, after painting they will reappear. So the TotalBilge was poor at covering thin line cracks.

Easy to apply


I used this inside some hanging lockers. Rolled on easy and tipped out great. Make sure if working in a tight space you use a respirator. The fumes can be strong.

Bilge Paint Isn't Just for Bilges


I searched long and hard for a paint that would perform well on metalworking machinery. The oils, cutting fluids, lubricants, etc. that are used on lathes, milling machines, grinders, and so forth are tuff on paints and finishes. Anticipating that bilge paint might fit the bill, I gave it a try. It appears that it will be durable but you will have to let it dry beyond the period of time recommended on the label. It remains tacky for a few days even in warm weather. Purchase the thinner recommended for the product when buying the paint. It is necessary to blend paint lines. The grey color is pleasing.

This product met my needs


We used the paint for the inside of our bird bath. It was recommended by a specialist.




Great prduct


I bought this product to seal my concrete birdbath. It worked perfectly! It was the only product I could find that truly protected the concrete and was safe for my birds.

Difficult But Very White Paint


First, the good news, Very Bright White Paint - So Far. See if it yellows, but it starts out appliance white. Second, nice gloss. Cons. Very difficult to apply well. First, APPLY ONLY THIN COATS. Saw one comment that it did not dry. Almost certain that was because it was applied too heavy and not thinned. IMHO, and despite the label, you need to thin this paint unless you are glopping it on an uneven surface. If you are using it in lockers or smooth surfaces, it must be thinned. Second, very hard to maintain a wet edge. Roll one strip and tip it off with a brush IMMEDIATELY. Seriously, this paint goes off like a rocket and once it does, it will not wet out. You will see everything - especially with the gloss. As far as the second coat, unless you let it dry for days, don't even bother with sandpaper. It stays too soft and will only clog it. Instead, use a 3m pad. Green or red works fast. It clogs too, but takes much longer. Also, the paint is really absorbed into raw wood, like plywood edges or any sand throughs in prior paint. I recommend hitting them first, wait a few hours and then put on your first coat - or use a primer. Finally, it really takes two even three coats, if thinned to get a smooth even gloss that is opaque and does not show defects from the old paint.In short, this product may be what it is called: Bilge paint. Using it for cabinets or lockers may require too much effort and other products may be better. On the other hand, if it stays bright white, it may be worth it (most other whites yellow up pretty fast). We will see.

I would buy this product again.


Only reason I'm giving 4 stars is due to packaging. The gallon can I received was so beat up that is won't sit flat. Other than that I'm very pleased with the product.
