Super High Gloss, Super Durable, Super Easy
TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint's forgiving formula lets you brush or roll & tip your way to a beautiful, long-lasting finish that looks like you sprayed it.
TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint gives you the beauty, high gloss, and durability of a 2-part polyurethane—without all the hard work.
Choose from 21 vibrant colors—or create your own!
TotalBoat Wet Edge 1-part, marine-grade polyurethane topside paint makes it easy to get a hard, high-gloss finish with superior resistance to UV damage, abrasion, and stains. It's also flexible enough to withstand all the movement (flexing, expansion, contraction) hulls & other topside surfaces typically undergo in ever-changing weather conditions, making it very resilient & durable. There's a color here to please just about everyone: (Top to bottom) Sand Beige, Kingston Gray, Flag Blue, Bristol Beige, Fighting Lady Yellow, Blu-Glo White, Sea Foam, Black, Sea Green, White, Fire Red, Largo Blue, Yellow, Hatteras Off-White, and Classic Whaler Blue. It also comes in Off-White, Oyster White, and Aqua Mist. If you want a custom color, you can blend different Wet Edge colors to create your own. Wet Edge is preferred for its high-gloss finish, but a few colors are also available in a flat finish. Available in Pints, Quarts, and Gallons. Pints are perfect for painting boot stripes.
TotalBoat Wet Edge can make your home ship shape, too!
TotalBoat marine-grade paints & varnishes can also provide durable, elegant finishes for your home. Our high-gloss topside paint is tougher than the stuff made to paint houses because it has to withstand relentless abuse from the wind, sun, rain, pollution & salt boats are exposed to in harsh marine environments. This head-turning finish looks great on front doors, trim, outdoor furniture & more.
Wet Edge gives you the edge in a range of temperatures.
Maintaining a "wet edge" is just paint talk for applying paint starting in the unpainted area and moving back into the just-painted area in order to avoid lap marks. TotalBoat Wet Edge lets you keep a wet edge in temperatures ranging from 50 to 90°F.
TotalBoat Wet Edge Features:
- 1-part high-gloss finish can be compared to Interlux Brightside & Pettit Easypoxy polyurethanes.
- Wet Edge provides a harder, more durable, flexible cure to prevent lifting, cracking, or peeling.
- Formula ensures superior adhesion. Won't fade or discolor.
- Apply to properly prepared fiberglass, wood, and previously painted surfaces.
- Easy to apply by brushing, rolling & tipping, or spraying. Use above the waterline.
- Compatible with non-skid additives and flattening agents.
- For best results, prime with TotalBoat Topside Primer, before applying Wet Edge.
Three Easy Ways to Apply TotalBoat Wet Edge Topside Paint
For better flow out when brushing, thin Wet Edge with either TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100 or mineral spirits (5-10% by volume). To ensure a proper cure, apply 2-3 thin coats rather than thick coats.
Color shown: TotalBoat Wet Edge Classic Whaler Blue.
Rolling & Tipping
For best results, the person holding the roller "rolls" vertically, applying an even coat of paint. The person with the brush "tips" horizontally. We recommend a natural bristle brush or a badger hair brush for tipping, instead of a foam brush, which will drag the paint away, rather than level it.
Color shown: TotalBoat Wet Edge Fighting Lady Yellow.
When spraying, thin Wet Edge with xylene (thinning percentage varies by the sprayer and conditions, typically 15-20%). Tip: Don't apply paint too thickly, or the finish will not dry properly.

Robert Hadden's sailboat
"I have been restoring a sailboat for the past two years, and this spring/summer I finally finished it. This picture is the boat hull finished with TotalBoat Wet Edge paint (both white and red), and TotalBoat Gleam varnish on the deck."
Kent Lewis' 1980 AMF Sunfish, "Viper"
"We used TotalBoat Epoxy for fiberglass repairs, then TotalBoat Primer. Faired a few spots with TotalFair, sanded with 100 grit. Used Wet Edge Kingston Gray to paint the Sunfish VIPER. Rolled and tipped the second coat of Wet Edge, thinned 5 percent because temp was 80F plus."
Richard Honan's 8' Nutshell Pram, "Summer Wind"
"TotalBoat Wet Edge Bristol Beige (interior), Off White (bottom and lower strakes), Flag Blue (gunnel). Summer Wind would have been painted with 100% TotalBoat Wet Edge, but there was no burgundy, which I used for the seats and rub rail. TotalBoat Marine Wood Finish was used on the mast, boom, and gaff. The tiller was finished with TotalBoat Lust Varnish."
Mary Feeny's front door
"When my yellow front door on a rental property I own needed a fresh coat of paint, I turned to Wet Edge for a few reasons. I wanted a super bright yellow and your color was a perfect match. Also, because it's a rental property, I needed a very durable finish that would really last, so I didn't have to repaint soon and bother the tenants again. Using a marine finish on my exterior front door was the perfect solution and years later it's still bright yellow and looks as great as it did the day I painted the door!"
It all started simply enough. As boaters, we wanted better stuff for our own boats.
Even our favorite products, the ones we'd come to rely on, had room for improvement. It'd be nice if they could hold up longer, cure faster, coat better, apply easier, and—since we all know boat ownership creates a mini maelstrom in your pocket—cost less. So we took everything we knew from 35 years of customer feedback, combined that with our own boating knowledge, and after a few years of rigorous R&D, TotalBoat was born. Launched, rather. By boaters, for boaters.

Sorry, this is supposed to be a review of the paint, which I found very easy to apply and dries to a nice sheen. Can't comment on wear; boat is not in water yet. Customer support is excellent, don't guess, ask.
We were originaly planning to brush it on but we decided it would be too much work. So first coat of paint we sprayed. Xylene is banned in our area so we tried it using the special brushing thinner. The first coat had to be completely sanded off because of all the runs. Dont thin with brushing thinner if you are going to spray! Maybe that should have been evident by the name but we tried it and it didnt work.
The next coat we tried tipping and rolling. Even late in the evening the summer temps were too hot. The paint didnt flow out.
Third coat was a last ditch effort, i thinned it with some reducer i had which was really just acetone and we sprayed it. It turned out ok.
So we decided to wet sand it all to get the roller marks out from the second coat before attempting coat 4. That coat sprayed on well but we ran out of paint with about 3 square feet left to do. So we are waiting for another quart to be delivered from the east coast.
Even though our results came out good I would not attempt to use this paint again. If i could do it over i would have paid more for a high quality car paint. Re-coat times are about ten minutes for most car paints. It would have saved us many hours in just clean up alone (having to clean up after applying each coat for several days in a row was a huge pain)
Also the manufacturer recommends xylene as a spraying thinner but i dont think they realize it is not available in all areas.
It would have been much easier to have bought paint locally and have local experts to help us get started.
Unless you have a climate controlled paint booth i wouldnt recommend this paint. Try keeping bugs out of wet paint for 4 days!
