Default Bottom paint

I've been toying with wet slipping my boat, but I really don't want to bottom paint it. If I use your product how often will I need to haul and clean the bottom. The boat is relatively close by so its not a tremendous issue to do.

Thanks, Jason

There isn't really a simple answer. If your boats sits for long periods of time it will need to be cleaned more regularly than if you're using the boat weekly. We've had experience where customers use their boat regularly each week and have gone as long as to four months without needing to clean it in harsh salt water conditions.

If you pull the boat out typically every 60 days and just pressure wash it and soft brush it, that should be sufficient. Are you in saltwater or freshwater?

If you just keep an eye on the algae growth you should be able to monitor it. By running your boat at WOT, that in and of itself will help clean the bottom. The nice thing is that any growth that would occur just wipes or washes right of.

Default Ceramic Coated sides and bottom

Here is a 24' Everglades that has the bottom and sides coated with Liquid Armour 9h. You can see the gloss is amplified by the coating. This is my neighbor's boat, and he keeps is on the water. I will ask him to leave some honest feedback on his experience with the coating. I'll try to get a few pictures of the boat on the water for you all.

Also, here is a half coated side on a dull faded gelcoat. You can see even without polishing it, it adds the gloss back.
