I ceramic coated my skiff hull and top side this time last year. The top side has held up great. It's easier to work around the console, under gunnels and hatches, etc... by hand in my opinion. The hull did not last longer than any other sealer I've used, and, for the amount of time it takes to put on by hand, I would prefer to use an orbital with a liquid sealer for the results I've seen so far. The boat is garage kept.

The beading is for sure different. You could honestly use a blower to dry the boat, like you would a vehicle to avoid swirls, to cut down on chamois time. I've noticed this on my wife's car after using a clear coat specific ceramic product - it reduces the time to dry considerably.

Let us know which option you take!
