Using this product on all inside surfaces of a 14' aluminum boat. I have read many reviews searching for application experiences. Many stated to buy the roller specifically designed for the coating and others suggested spraying. Though I have a compressor, I had no experience spraying and decided to purchase the roller. I used the recommended primer and did everything required for a good application. The primer was thin and had no issues applying. The coating was a different story. This turned out to be extremely difficult. When the manufacturer states do not roll over what is already rolled down... They mean it. After just 5-10 seconds it already starts to adhere to itself and if you re-roll an area, it will come up peeling. After the first coat and 2 hrs later, it looked terrible. At this point I was reconsidering my purchase. For the 2nd coat I decided to purchase a texture sprayer and with no experience, attempted this method with nothing to lose. This was the best decision ever. I sprayed the whole boat in 10 minutes with a very even coat and it looks great. This was not difficult at all and I would recommend anyone to bypass the roller application and start spraying. I used 2/3 of a gallon with the 1st coat using a roller (with poor results) and 1/3 of a gallon spraying 2nd coat (with great results). I purchased 2 gallons and sprayed the 3rd and 4th coat, though not necessary, just wanted to use up what was left. The coating has the consistency of pancake batter so there was very little over-spray to worry about. Sprayed in the driveway with no wind. and dried very fast. The product looks great and feels like rubber, durable and is non-skid as advertised. Would definitely use this again.

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.

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)
