  • Slick boat bottom!

    Ben and I are putting Wetlander coating on our boat, got started today. Pinstriper is letting us use his barnyard. Right by a bees' nest thanks dude! We got all the varathane OFF the bottom today and the sun got to us so we'll put the base coat on tomorrow. Click image for larger version

    all boat projects are good boat projects. OK, except like after you crash it into something or wrap it around some rocks, those are not such a good boat projects.

        I here Wetlander is awesome! My boat had Coat-It on already that just needing touching up so didn't take the plunge. You'll have to show me how it works.

          Lookin good bro! Looking forward to the finished product, keep us posted. My boat project this year was patching a pontoon on my 8' toon It worked though!

          My buddy just did a total overhaul on his db, new wood, paint, sandblasted the trailer and painted, new tires, wiring, led lights........... looks unreal. He has the funds and has great connections. He did it for fun as a project and knows he won't get the money back, offered it to me for a trade for painting his house (and then some probably). Very tempting......................but I love being a bank maggot!

          More pics Dana!

            I do remember being a bankie, so many creeks and streams... rivers in the Summer and Fall... Don't have the legs for banking it now, but I do have a project in the works, a full refit for my Alaskan.
            Great job on the bottom, years of trouble free use...

                Hans I hope it's as slippery as they say. Yesterday we sanded, and sanded and then sanded some more. Then we had some technical problems, so this morning we finally got the primer on and it has to cure 24 hours at the very least so with the threat of rain we may have to wait till next week to put the top coat on.

                  Dana, I'm sorry to say when we got back from the lake with our kayaks and I was backing up to the barn, there was a little "boat ramp rubbing" went on.

                  Nothing major, just an itty bitty scrape on your brand new paint. Can barely see from 20' away.

                  You know how it goes. Can happen to anybody.

                        You will like it, but having done both I would suggest Slip Plate #1 over Wetlander. Only a fraction of the price and 10 times easier to put on. I bought a gallon for $55 on Ebay and it took about a quarter of it to do my 16x48. I have had it on for 2-3 years now and it's still in great shape. The best part about Slip Plate is when you need to redo it all you do is clean it up and apply more right over the top of the old stuff. You will love your Wetlander though, stuff is super slick and tough.

                              It's the first time I've done this, Wetlander seemed like the best when I was comparing them. But I'll keep Slip-Plate #1 in mind if this doesn't work out. But I'm also known for doing things the hard way.......
