Big box stores like Home Depot sell tools for applying latex house paint. Wetlander is not paint; it is a high-grade industrial coating. Cheap painting tools are not going to work very well for you. After much testing, we have…
This bottom coating proved superior and outperformed the commonly used product in everyway possible.
As far as friction goes, there isn’t any; in fact, what used to take some muscle to push my boat off the trailer, now just takes a quick shove and then the mad dash to hang-on as it departs. Loading up is just as easy and feels as though the bottom of the boat is greased.
If I had to come up with one word that describes this coating; it would be: “Outstanding!”
Wow! What a fantastic product. I refurbished my 1996 SeaArk this summer and coated the bottom with the Wetlander product. It looks great, was easy to apply and really helps the boat cut through the water. Scott Hogan and the good folks at Wetlander really know what they’re doing. I would recommend their product to anyone.

Been using Wetlander for 3 years on the rocky unforgiving rivers of the northwest. What used to be a two day project using traditional drift boat coatings takes only a few hours to touch up with Wetlander and it’s twice as slick. My biggest problem is during lunch the boat won’t stay on the bank. It keeps slipping back into the river.
I have been rehabbing this old work boat that's been in the salt water for over 25 years. I called Scott Hogan at Wearlon Co. and asked what would be the best application I would use. Scott walked me through the whole job. The bottom came out brand new. I had ten fishing buddy's from our club here looking at the bottom and they were very happy in the results of this product. I highly recommend Wetlander to anybody. The two applications I put on was very EZ. Thank You Scott for the help. You made it simple.

“Slicker than goose sh-t on a wet pier. It’s great stuff, easy to apply and works great. Prep on the bottom on the key and allow enough time to cure. I let it sit in my heated garage one week between applications. Awesome stuff”

"After first run with new bottom on the West Branch Delaware River. Water was at 716 cfs. The boat tracked with ease due to the slick bottom. We did a 9 1/2 mile float and I purposely put it to the test running in some shallows. After hearing some of the sounds going through the shallows I was a bit concerned on what I would find after the float. I was impressed with the outcome, the coating was only scuffed and no cracking anywhere on the finish! Great product!"
The addition of The WetLander Bottom Paint makes a world of difference there is absolutely ZERO resistance just gliding over the top of all this giving me even higher top end speeds...
... This bottom paint is not only Slick but tough as nails.

"We had about 2-3 inches of snow on the ground which normally means no ice boat. The boat slid surprisingly well and we were able to cross the main channel of the Mississippi river just below the lock and dam and get to the other side where there is some slack water and holds some walleyes. We didn't have any luck but boat worked quite well. My dad and I both weigh about 250 and boat slid great. Thanks!"
