Who has experience with ceramic coating on a bass boat?

Price? Is it worth doing?

TIA

I did the top cap and sides on my boat. Great results. But I did it all myself, so it was inexpensive. Very time consuming. Wet sanding with two grits, then polishing with three compounds, then applying the ceramic. Looks like a boat. Still drys with water spots. But they wife off with a dry towel.

I have used this with excellent results, gel was already shiny so just the ceramic in 2 coats.

i did my boat which is wrapped. It did not look any better and still gets water spots, but, I think it wipes off or cleans up easier.

I haven't had the actual full on ceramic wax done, but I have switched over to the ceramic quick wax and I have noticed it hangs on a lot better than your standard Lucas Quick waxes and whatnot. I definitely recommend it.

Read your response Steez. “Freudian Slip”, wishful thinking or your wife is way more game than mine! laugh

How often do you use it? When you come out of the water, do you just wipe down with a towel?
