Tuff Coat™ is a high-performance, non-skid polyurethane safety coating that works to effectively coat and weatherproof a number of surfaces. This UV resistant coating protects your boating surfaces, and employs a non-abrasive, crumb aggregate texture that can be sprayed or brushed on, according to how much texture you desire for a protected, non-skid surface. Tuff Coat is highly effective in absorbing noise, which makes it extremely handy in coating aluminum boats and skiffs, as well as lessening the noise in your truck, dock, deck, or ramp. One quart covers approximately 12 sq. ft.; 1 gallon covers about 40-45 sq. ft.

Better Than Carpet
This is the 2nd boat I have used Tuff Coat on, the first was a fiberglass fish n ski ( fishin only ) and this last time was an aluminum project boat I have worked on for a year !
In each application I have been pleased with the results. If you apply it correctly, you should be thrilled as well.
Never really understood carpet, for a fishing boat. I've never owned a 40 K Ranger, but for the weekend angler, you can trick out your rig, and hose out any & all messes straight through the drain hole !
I would recommend this to anyone looking to replace their carpet, and looking to save money by doing it themselves !
2 gal will be neded if you do an entire aluminum boat, with other surfaces too.

We used this product on our Game Warden patrol boats two years ago. If you follow the directions, this product performs as advertised. We scuffed the decks, primed, then painted this on with rollers. Our slip problems were solved. The boats run quieter than previously; much less creaking and vibration. This coating also helped to reduce heat in the summer and insulated our feet in winter. Reduction in heat and cold was a tremendous benefit as we are on the water throughout the year. 90+ heat checking fishermen in summer and breaking ice checking duck hunters in winter. We put many hours than the average sportsman on our boats and there has been no degradation in the coating. We had one spot about the size of a quarter that peeled; which we fixed by scuffing, priming and repainting. You can't find it now.
Color choice is also a key factor. Competitors don't offer much besides black or red. We chose "OLIVE" because it was light enough in color to reflect heat but still offered the camouflage effect we desired. KEY: "Olive" is not "OLIVE DRAB". Go look at a green olive and that is pretty much the color you get, which is what we wanted. "Drab" was too dark for our needs.
It does take some preparation and a day between priming and finish coats. If you do it as instructed, you'll love the result.
Absolutely wonderful product.

Good so far
I just applied this product so I cannot say anything about how it will hold up.
Tips to apply
1. Get a paint/mud mixer for your drill. I have one that fits my 1/2 inch drill and stirring the product was super easy. It is as thick as pancake batter and all of the rubber settles to the bottom of the can. The drill had to work hard at first to get things going. i cannot imagine trying to stir this stuff with a stir stick.
2. Don't mess around with the roller. The directions say the product goes on very well with a Hopper gun and they are not kidding. Application was a breeze. I have a 20 foot Pontoon with a brand new floor it took less than 5 minutes per application. ( requires 2 applications)

My kids got me product for my pontoon boat. I have wood and bare metal. After I scuffed up the aluminum, I washed the entire deck with Dawn soap, put down the primer and let her dry. The next morning I applied the 1st coat, let dry, then put down the second coat. The following weekend we were using the boat. It was an easy way to go.

New lumber needs no sanding. Remove any peeling, cracking, or chipping paint, varnish or sealer. Ensure surface is clean and completely dry. Prime with CP-10. Test for adhesion first, before completing job. Apply The Product.
We do a lot of fishing and are considering this instead of new carpet. How well does it clean up after a day of blood and guts from fish and bait? Also, it says it covers 50 sq. ft. per gallon, but I read that two coats were required - does that mean it would take 8 gallons to cover appx. 200 sq. ft of deck?
It took two gallons to do my 19ft boat (about 90 sq ft) and that was two coats...I think that the 50 sq ft is with the two coat recommendation. I have found that it cleans up very well after a full day fishing...I just pull through the car wash and spray it down...I did have to use a brush when I accidently let some fish blood bake all day, but it didn't stain.
I don't recall the coverage - you will definitely need two coats though. Call the company in Colorado - they can give you some guidance as to actual coverage. Do an internet search to find them. They are very helpful!!
