    It is a grafite based paint that you thin with acetone and roll it on. Is it worth it? I don't know for sure, but I can tell you to tie the boat to the trailer very well.............Ray

    this is true. I put it on the bottom of a flattie i've been working on. After putting the coating on I had to strap the boat to the dolly because it would slide on the dolly just leaning agianst the boat.

    Yes it sticks like paint and yes it will wear out. HOw soon and how bad depends on many factors.

    Yes it is

    Takes about a thousand coats doing it upside down. the can we got was as thin as water. It applies great going with gravity. takes a while going against gravity.
