How to Apply

Tuff-Coat Inflatable Boat Paint is applied in two simple steps.

  1. Preparation
    1. Before attempting to apply any paint, it is absolutely critical that the surfaces be properly cleaned.
  2. Base Coat
    1. Paint or Spray
  3. Top Coat
    1. Paint or Spray

How Much Do I Need?
A  Tuff-Coat Kit (contains one qt. Basecoat and one qt. Topcoat).   This will cover approximately 40-60 sq ft per quart for base coat and 60-80 for topcoat.

For a 8 ft. inflatable you will need 1 “complete kit” to do the pontoons only. To cover the pontoons and the floor, you will need 1 extra quart of basecoat on top of the 1 “kit” you will require to do the pontoons.

For a 9 – 14 ft. inflatable you will need 2 Kits to do the pontoons only.

For a 15 – 17 ft. inflatable you will need 3 Kits to do the pontoons only.

For a 18 – 21 ft. inflatable you will need 4  Kits to do the pontoons only.

As boats get longer their tube diameter and overall surface area gets larger therefore more paint must be ordered.

It is the basecoat that is the most important for covering rough areas, chafed areas, pinholes, etc, to build up the sealing/protective layer. The topcoat is the finishing layer to bring it to a beautiful appearance. This is why more basecoat is required when doing the floor also and when boats get larger.

If in doubt about your needs, especially if your boat is in rough shape with patches and chafed areas to cover, etc, you should order more paint as you do not want to get part way through your project and need more paint.

Both base and top coats will last over a year of shelf life so this offers you a quantity to have in case you require extra for repairs, touch-ups, etc in the future.
