Had this on my airboat and rigging. It was really nice to have but it closed down my square wire on my cage and did not allow enough air to the prop. It holds up really well

I think you had our regular Line-X. The Ultra is much thinner and smoother than our XS line of materials.

no sir.. Ultra is just over two years old. Did we spray it? You might be thinking about our XS-650. Both require additional cost over our standard XS materials. I am thinking you received XS-350. Do you have the airboat frame Line-X of Brandon sprayed?

Are you able to tape these off and spray on the boat so one doesn't have to remove the entire hard top,radar,antennas and framework?

unfortunately not. We need to sandblast, wash and prime to do the job correctly. The spray job on these is very difficult as the pipe work round requiring a bunch of technique. Also, corrosion always starts in the areas you can not get to and need to be protected as much as possible to last.
The good news is we can handle everything from the de-rigging on!

The 2nd Everglades customer who had failing powdercoat wanted to match his new grey deck. He just sent me over finished pictures and I think it turned out awesome!

What is the average cost to do it?

I will be doing an Onslow Bay 33 build about the 1st of the year and thinking of LineX'ing the metals. Originally doing a white hull w/gray metals, now wife is pushing for a gray hull w/white metals!


I will need to look into transporting the metals south.
