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.

Anthony goes where he want to go: noairboatneeded 

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.

 

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").

 

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.

 

"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.

GatorGlide coatings are non-stick, super slick water based industrial release coatings. GatorGlide GatorBase,G2 & G4 are designed for Airboat, Mud Boats, Duck boats, Jon boats, Canoes and Layout boats bottoms or anything that you would want to glide across any surface including land, lake, swamp or sea..

 

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.

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

    • GatorGlide G2 is the more slick coating with high abrasion residence and the GatorGlide G4 is almost as slick with even higher abrasion residence. The choice can be tough. Foremost, GatorGlide does not require heat assistance for curing. It will cure at room temperature! Thus, it can be applied anytime and anywhere. ( You would not paint your house at night or in the rain! The same applies to all paint on products. You can do it, it may not turn out as well!) 
    • GatorGlide easiest and fastest in the application process. Application, by spray, brush, or roller, rolling is best in my opinion unless you need a smooth app.
    • What competitors? GatorGlide is a water based, low VOC, super tough epoxy
    • Comes in any color found on bottom of G2 or G4 page.
    • Adheres to almost everything - wood, metal, plastic, etc. But not poly.
    GatorGlide is the most cost effective coating on the marker bar none.
