Brian, what would it cost to spray the painted part of my truck? Looking at painting it and think this might be a better way to go. I'd like it to look similiar to the way it looks now... (Silver top and lowers with aqua green sides).

Thanks!

Doug

How is pricing determined? I know different materials have a price rnge. I am looking at ordering a competition 25 in oct. I would like the deck up to cap, t-top, leaning post, cap, and maybe the console done in blue and white like conch27 colors. I am not looking to hold you to a price. I am just trying to get an idea on cost. Thinking of all boxes and livewells also. Any issues with livewells? Thank-you. Leon

Leon,
Thanks for the interest in Line-X for your new boat! We usually run in the $15 per square foot for marine applications done at our shop. We are mobile and can run to the factory to complete work to not halt production. Please feel free to call me most anytime to discuss your boat! - Brian (941) 527-1387

Thank-you for the info. I showed my wife pictures of your work on boats and she said, "You would be stupid to not get that done to the boat." I guess that means I will be calling you in oct. You guys do awesome looking work by the way.

Brian - I have searched all over the internet and cannot seem to get a straight forward answer anywhere. I have a truck that the previous owner had the bed sprayed. I would like to have Line-X Xtra sprayed in the bed, because what is in there now has faded and wasn't the best job to begin with. My question is this, can the Line-X be re-sprayed on top of what I have now, or does the bedliner that I have now need to be removed. If it needs to be removed, then what is involved in that both labor wise and cost wise. FYI I am close to Raleigh, NC, if there is a good shop close by. Thanks for the help.

Almost every store can do the Line-X Renew system. Renew is a proccess to incorporate a Line-X Xtra or Line-X Premium liner onto any brand spray on. Cost will depend on the condition of your current liner. If its a decent Line-X you should be around $250

Brian:

I have a 16" aluminum boat, and I am planning to get the fishing decks and the middle deck of the boat coated with line-x. I called my local line-x franchise and they told me that they use line-x 350. Would that type of line-x be suitable for my application. I know you use 650 because of the grip and better uv protection. I live just south of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, so the Baton Rouge franchise is the one I called. I've put so many hours into getting this boat into shape that I do not want to cut corners or skimp on this. If you could please, let me know if the 350 is suitable and reliable and whether you would recommend using it in a boat. I know that it is obviously not your top recommendation (as is the 650), but I am just curious as to whether you would recommend it at all. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for calling today! The 350 with Line-X Xtra has a limited UV performance while our Sarasota Line-X XS-650 system has an unlimited UV performance.. My crew will be heading to Texas in a couple weeks to work on 3 Texas Yellowfin's, and if we strike a deal I will have them stop in and spray your rig! - thanks for the interest and I will be in touch

Brian, I'm definitely hoping we can strike a deal, I have sent you the email with the pictures and the wish list of what I would like to have done. Thanks for all the info, and thanks for being such a stand up person and coming to this forum to answer questions. Although it seems like a no brainer and will boast your business, you would be surprised at how many rude people there are out there that don't want to give you the time of day to answer questions. Thanks for all of you your help again and I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm pretty confident we will strike a deal. And while his crew is over here, we may just have to cook them some South Louisiana cuisine!

Brian, I thought that people would get a kick out of this picture. Shows the thickness of the line-x on my bracket. Can't wait to bolt it back on the boat.

Can the line-x be applied directly to plywood?

In which step can the Linex 650 material be applied in the boat building process.meaning in which stage?
underneath the deck instead of the gelcoat ?on linear,bulkhead above and under deck.
how does it behave in extreme heat?would it expand ?
have u ever sprayed hull side instead of paint and gelcoat ?
does it crack with sun heat? 60 c
i spoke to the linex department in Saudi arabia and they give life time warranty on the kevlar linex...they can repair it hear but ur stuff seams to be different and more applicable to the marine environment .. how long can i expect this material to hold?
reason am asking is am planing to build a custom boat and am really considering to involve this material in each step beneath and above the hull..i know u can't spray the running surface but i want to build a real saltwater boat.
this material can as well harden the boat structure !!
I have an engineer who also suggested ceramic coats cause they are lighter that the regular linex not ur 650.
let me know
thanks

I am painting my 27' Phoenix with Awlgrip. I am considering having you guys spray Line-X 650 for the non skid. The molded nonskid areas will be sanded, flaired down flat so they will be not distinguishable pattern left. The new non skid pattern will be created using a taped off method before that final awlgrip top-coating is applied. The entire boat will be painted with 545 Awlgrip primer prior to final coat. In an attempt to plan this part of the project, can Line-X 650 be applied over the primer? If not, am I to assume that all places to be Line-X non-skid need to be masked of prior to priming? Please advise. Thanks!

I live in Austin, TX and there are a couple of Line-X places here, but I think they only do truck beds. I'm thinking that I would have to pull my boat down to the Houston area to get it done. I don't want a half-A$$ job because it's a new SeaArk 1872. What should I expect to pay to get the interior of the boat done. It would probably be better to get it done before I add all of the extra hardware, rigging, and the t-top.
