We have a “Fresh water fouling release” AKA "FR" we now offer. This means it helps with bottom growth on boats that stay in the fresh water. It does not prevent it from growing but slows it down and if applied correctly it will help with cleaning the growth off. If you trailer your boat I recommend the "standard" it is slicker.
Q: What the difference between G2 and G4?
A: G2 is about 10% slicker and the G4 is about 10% more abrasion resident!
“FR” or “Fouling Release” is for boats that stay in the water more than out. It is easier to clean than the “Standard”. However if you trailer your boat you will want the Standard (IMO) as it is slicker!
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 then 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").If you use 25% A then use 25% B. You have about a 70 min pot life, so mix accordingly.
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"). Please watch the mixing video below its a big help
GatorGlide ease of application and re-application is surpassed by none.
1. A light sanding only(NO GRINDING w/ HEAVY GRIT WHEELS).
2. A good wipe with acetone.
3. You're ready for your application.
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 ride Glide.Type your paragraph here.
