We were redoing the walkaround teak decks on our 1978 trawler and needed a product that provided the flexibiltiy needed for a boat deck. Tuff Coat is working very well for us! It went on 6 months ago and is holding up well. We have had to redo a few places (due to moisture under the Tuff Coat) but this has been easy to do. Note: the white did not stay white for us very long - it is more a light yellow at this point. Not bad but definitely not white.
I would use it again as it cleans up well, holds up well and the non-skid surface is great. It does hold up to banging by anchors, chains, etc quite well. Definitely need to use the primer though. Both the primer and the finish coat went on relatively easily.

So far this product has lived up to its name, it’s pretty tuff. It was easy to apply and to clean up. I put it on all the surfaces of my Sea ark and it is pretty great. After a good day of fishing I had a lot of blood and fish slime all over the decks and I still didn’t slide around. I thought that the blood wouldn’t come off after baking in the Florida sun all day but one swipe with the pressure washer and it was gone with no scrubbing or chemicals. So far no peeling on any of the sides or flat surfaces. I do agree with previous comments about the color charts but I used some spray paint and some creativity to spruce up the bland color. The wife didn’t like but like I told her it isn’t a pleasure boat it’s a functional fishing boat and if she doesn’t like it she doesn’t have to ride in it.

This would be a great product if someone actually put together a correct color chart, Tan is not tan, it is a very dark brown. I just wonder what some of the grays are, is Sand really sand? I hope the store will take this stuff back and I can try Sand to see if it is any closer to Tan. I would recommend this but check the color first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cigar Good product bad color
Purchased this product to recoat an area of a boat after a repair. The original material still looks great and makes a nice slip-proof and weather-proof coating. The only issue with this product is that the color is not what is shown in the on-line catalog. The "Olive green" is actually more of a bright lime green. Slightly dissappointed. Had to use another product to match the color on the boat.

Yes as long as the livewell isn't always full of water. If so, there is a version for constant submersion, you would prepare and coat the surface as you would another fiberglass surface. Be sure to use the primer item # 1315396 let dry for 7 days before flooding the livewell.
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!!
