Had GatorHull on my charger, Loved it. Didn't really effect anything, put my mind at ease when I would get stuck on a stump. GatorHull coating is usually about adds about 34-50lbs depending on the size of the boat. Most of the time they test run the boat to insure that it doesn't effect the performance of the ride quality. The only concern I would have is if the prior owner had either brand put on the hull due to damage he had prior to having the product put on.
