Anyone ever done it? I have an old 1996 Basscat and in some places along the bottom the paint has gotten down to flake and is discolored along with some poor quality paint repairs that have me thinking about a facelift.. ran across a Triton online that was sprayed and I’m considering doing this to my boat..I’m assuming I could do if for cheaper than a wrap and it’d last longer. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks..

Would it add a lot of weight to the boat, depending on how large an area you use it on?

Once it got hard water on it I think it would look like hammered doo doo.

Gator hull is what you are after...

Hi Cameron

but 3 K for a gator hull as opposed to a couple of hundred for bed liner spray on makes a big difference. Plus he probably don't care what it looks like when done.
He said to just cover up some thin spots, not protect the bottom from stumps and t-posts.

Use Raptor Liner from Upol. It’s tintable so it doesn’t have to be grayish black, unless that’s what you’d like.

As for weight, it would weigh less than a gallon of water, once the solvents “flash off” and it’s cured. Actually far less.

i concur, not to mention the additional drag created by the rough texture


I didn't lose him at the boat. I shook him off cause I didn't want my hands to get "fishy"

Man, I'd go for it. Who cares, it's a 20+ year old boat Chris. I don't really see how it could go that bad. Gator and Gorilla hull etc. have been doing for years basically. You talking doing the whole bottom?

Gator or Gorilla hull is what you want. You can do a line X keel but they don't recommend the whole hull. Now doing the sides and the topcap, they would probably do that but man its going to be expensive, I know line x do entire trucks and jeeps. Your boat is going to weight a bunch more, like a BUNCH. You need to figure out how much thats going to be with a full gas tank and tournament loaded boat, boats do have a max weight capacity it might be over.

I would be more than a couple hundred, just a line x keel is 700-900, the whole hull would be well over a grand, the whole boat several grand. There is also extra cost with them lifting the boat off the trailer.

From his response above, he doesn't want to spray the pad - only the parts a wrap would cover. I did an entire truck in Line-X and it was around $3500 (excluding the bed which was already done). I would estimate what you are talking about would run $1800-$2500. It would make a good boat for fishing the trees at Falcon.
