What is the shortest amount of time you would need to do a new truck bed with your basic stuff? In other words if drove up there how long would I have to sit around before I could drive away with it or would you need it overnight? Thanks.

(Your work is amazing BTW.)

Thanks for your earlier response to this.
I am guessing that earlier response involved a solid color coating?

Lets expand from there....................if the hull was a solid surface without any gaps or cracks, etc.......do you have a flexible clear but thin coating that could be used in place of clear hard resin? So that the beauty of the wood would still be visable?

Great! That is quicker than I thought. If the deal goes through I'll be in touch soon.

Would you rather spray onto bare, sanded down gelcoat/poly/vinylester or the same with a barrier coat of this already on it? Asked another way, will it hurt the durability/performance of the LineX to put it on top of this epoxy rather than an uncoated surface?

It's a good question and good timing. We are doing some testing this week with our EPX epoxy primer. I am going to add the interlux to the test. Typically we apply our XPM primer to the gelcoat with outstanding adhesion. But I am all about avoiding blisters. We see blisters from uncatalized resin in the raw glass work but typically not from aged gelcoat. Keep in my mind once the Line-X is down the moisture is not getting through. Maybe the interlux barrier works both ways in that it might help to block some off gassing. I will buy a quart and see what kind if adhesion I see.- thanks

Look forward to hearing what you find. I want to coat a lot of things in my project with this to seal everything up and thought it may help prep for LineX to have it go onto a uniform surface rather than old poly, new ve, various fillers and old epoxy, but I wasn't sure.
This epoxy is one of the best I have found for blister protection- from both ways. This 2000e also doesn't require sanding between coats even for several weeks, so was wondering if that could cut down on some prep for you perhaps...

Brian, What sort of warranty does the 650 have? On a boat I mean. Thanks, Mark

I e-mailed the shop a long time ago and never got a response. I also called yesterday and never got a call back. Looking to set up an appt for the keel.

brian,
How well does the xs-650 hold up below the water line and how do you get 5200 to bond to the product to create a water tight seal?

silicones and 5200 stick very well to Line-X. Growth takes a little longer and is a little easier to clean but none the less will grow. The 650 is extremely dense and suitable for immersion although I would limit it to brackets and such on boats that will be out of the water...

Would you need to remove my t top frame, leaning post etc to do the interior of my boat? What is generally the turnaround time for a 24' boat getting the interior done, nothing fancy.

You don't have to remove them but if you can easily it makes for a much easier and cleaner application with the Line-X. We remove as much of the hardware as possible. This year I have made a huge investment in a dedicated marine Line-X team that does nothing but boats, trolling motors, brackets etc... We have been busy and are finally catching up around here. I need one week with your boat to do the interior in general. Weather and mobile jobs have been tough, but we are starting to hit our stride..

That is the best time! For a $1500 premium I will get my full time marine crew on the road. I have two guys that do not even touch trucks and have done it all - look at the conch 27.

I have several things that need to be sprayed: armstrong bracket and possibly a t-top. Does the mobile crew do that? Also have a box that goes inside the t-top with chipping paint... Do you guys sandblast that kind of stuff then hit it with your product?

I am in St. Pete

Thanks!
Doug

Your local really just over the skyway from us. Come by the shop today or tomorrow morning as we have a tower here completed to look at. We sandblast the towers & brackets prior to applying our Line-X primer system. Please feel free to give me a call anytime to discuss your items! thanks in advance - Brian (941) 527-1387
