Home of "GatorGlide " Super Slick Boat Bottom Coatings
our graphite color now appears almost black in the G2, all colors appear lighter in G4.
All orders are made to order, once made the color cannot be changed... good thing it's on the bottom!
Take a look at our GatorBase primer tough coat ! The GatorBase is essentially the same as the GatorGlide without all the secret slick stuff added...Well it has some slick stuff added just one or two components! GatorBase makes a great base/tuff coat for the GatorGlide G2 or G4, the combo is awesome.
Thank you for your order. Please print, read and save the following! Watch the 3 videos below!

After sanding with 100 - 150 grit and wiping thoroughly with acetone you are ready to apply the GatorBase. New aluminum I recommend degreasing with a degreasing agent.
Q: What the difference between G2 and G4?
A: G2 is about 10% slicker and the G4 is about 10% more abrasion resident!
Sand will wear anything down! Anything! Try running a stainless prop through sand, then tell me how long it will last!
Before starting GatorBase(GB) or GatorGlide(GG) mix part "A" thoroughly with a high shear mixer
GatorBase: Four or Five "thin" coats is ideal, You can mix as much as you will need and save some for touch ups later. When you open the bucket mark the outside at the top level then mark half, quarter and so on and do the same with the catalyst and mix accordingly.(example: if you are using 1/4 or 1/2 of Part "A" then use 1/4 or 1/2 of Part "B").
Give the GatorBase 72 hrs to dry before applying the GatorGlide.
Once the GB has cured out, you're ready to start the GG
Give the surface a light scuff with either 220 grit paper or a Scotch Brite pad and wipe well with acetone. You are just taking the shine off the GB.
Apply both GatorBase and GatorGlide in multiple thin coats using a 6" inch X 3/8" nap roller. I like the white ones with the yellow stripe running through it, I also like working out of a 2 gal bucket with a paint grid, get both at Home depot),
GatorGlide slick bottom: Five "thin" coats is ideal, You can mix as much as you will need and save some for touch ups later. When you open the bucket mark the outside at the top level then mark half, quarter and so on and do the same with the catalyst and mix accordingly.(example: if you are using 1/4 or 1/2 of Part "A" then use 1/4 or 1/2 of Part "B"). http://youtu.be/kqp2Nb-yAfI
GG is going to fisheye like you're painting a waxed hood. That's just how it is, after you roll the second section and before dipping your roller for the third go back and dry-roll the first section. You will see it start to tighten up, you may have to go back again. After the second or third coat it will cover fine if you are applying it thin enough and letting it dry between coats.
. Wait for it to dry...DRY(about 20-30 min) to the touch and start your next coat.
Please never hesitate to call me to discuss the application, mixing tips or if you just want to bounce idea off of me. The longer it sits before you run it the harder it gets.
Q. How much do I need for my boat??
A. A "Quart" will cover up to 50 SQ FT 5 coats depending on how thin you apply the coats!
a 1/2 gal 100 sq ft! up to 5 coats
a Gallon 200 sq ft up to 5 coats
"THIN TO WIN" I can't stress this enough THIN COATS! if you can put the same amount on in 3 coats or 5 coats go 5 it will be a better job.

2. A good wipe with acetone.

There is no need to turn the boat over. See pictures below and videos for some ideas on how to raise your boat
For re-application it would require light sand, wipe with acetone and paint it on.
You don't have to recoat the entire bottom.
Using GatorGlide will result in more speed, better fuel consumption and much less wear & tear on your boat and motor. You will go places you couldn't go before at a lower RPM. It will give your boat a whole new

Here's a look at the bottom of my boat after the last duck season, running allot of dry ground and punching a big rock which I stood up out of the water with the impact. Touchup took 1.5 hrs, soup to nuts, chain hoist, lifting boat, sanding, wiping with acetone, painting it on, mixing product wait time between coats and a beer...or two
