I’ve not used it yet, but the purchasing experience was fast and effortless and the delivery was on time and reasonable. I’m happy with my decision to use this store to get my paint quickly with no issues. Thank you ! Cindi C.

Everything went according to plan. The only issue I had was I did receive a tracking number but I believe it has to do with permissions in my e-mail client. I called for help and the gent was right on it. The product was shipped and arrived in a timely manner. BPS is now in my contacts folder for paint…..Greg M.

Mark Lanzotti Lennie S.

Site is easy to navigate and find the bottom paint I wanted. Checkout was easy also. Lennie S.

Excellent customer service Theodore S.

Good products at the right price Richard S.

Always professional, great prices and service.

The order was processed and shipped promptly and received the 3 gallons of paint in 2 days. The can lids were secured with small clamps, as required, and protected with specially designed one- and two-gallon styrofoam packs that fit the cardboard boxes perfectly and did not allow for movement of the cans. The prices were $40 lower per gallon than the pricing I could get with a 40% discount from West Marine. The Sea Hawk Colorkote mixed easily and went on smoothly and time will tell its anti-fouling properties and longevity. Coverage was a bit less than anticipated as 4 gallons would have been best for a 44-foot sailboat, 2 coats. Two people just over 2.5 hours to apply with rollers. Great service and excellent product. – Don P.

Quick and dependable service. Franklin H.

Great company to deal with, even sent me a letter on how to install the bottom paint. – Albert W.

Very user friendly web site. For some reason I wasn’t able to use PayPal to complete the sale. I somehow managed to input the wrong address for delivery. A quick email and the problem was corrected, even as my order was enroute. My first order. Won’t be my last. – Ronald O.

Great customer service. – George N.

Placing the order for the paint on the website was easy. I am working on a 50 year old aluminum flat Jon boat as a project. Bringing back to life. At the point where it needed a paint job. After much research, Bottom Paint Store came on top and Sea Hawk Aluma Hawk.
The paint came quick, from Florida to Arizona. Well packaged. Now, as for the paint – it was very thick. Perhaps I should’ve thinned it down. I used a roller and a brush to finish off around and under the ribs. Paint dried quick. By the time I finished one end of the boat, it was ready for the second coat. But the finished product was awesome. The 14’ Jon boat looked new. I used the entire gallon.
If I had to do it again, I would thin it down and perhaps use a spray gun. I was satisfied with the quick service and the paint. I do recommend this paint store and “thick” paint. – Raul M.

Website was easy to navigate and my shipment arrived promptly and in good condition. – David L. 5/26/2023

I have had nothing but a good experience with the Bottom Paint Store. Customer Service was very helpful and the number of options more than satisfactory. The only reason I withheld an excellent rating is the CS rep told me you do not carry any coatings for metal swing Kiel’s. – Dennis G. 5/26/2023

Exceptionally fast shipping, very fast email support and they had my hard to find item at a fair price. The Bottom Paint Store is definitely on my list of “go to” vendors. – John N. 5/25/2023

Very fast shipping and everything arrived in great condition. James T. 5/22/2023

Pettit Vivid Reviews

Pettit Vivid Antifouling

A very effective bottom paint for the Great Lakes. – David B.

Compromise between more ablative and full hard paint for your hull. – Bert R.

I haven’t used the paint yet but I expect it will live up to its reputation. – Tom Z.

The best paint.

Pettit Trinidad Pro Reviews

Trinidad Pro

We first used Pettit Trinidad Pro on my sail boat in 2014. Now in 2021 a full 7 years later we have to repaint. Probably should have repainted last year but regardless of 7 years or only 6 years of effective coverage its amazing. Virtually no bottom growth for 6 years – WOW. This would be my permanent choice for bottom paint if Pettit were not finally giving up the fight. – Michael H

The delivery was fast but the gallon can was badly damaged due to the weight of the product inside. Nothing wrong with the contents and the package did have a red warning label Do Not Drop. Can’t blame the store, just the shipper. – Robert K

Used before it’s great.

Pettit Black Widow Bottom Paint Review

Pettit Black Widow Racing Antifouling, Black

Went on thin but easily. Definitely needs two coats as the sanding/buffing to bring out the best in the product was worn through on edges/thin spots. Seems very slick….first time trying this one.

I will know more later in the summer and beyond. I am hopeful that it is as good it sounds. I tried a roll and tip method for applying the two coats of paint, and it sets up too quickly for that, so I think it would be applied better by either roller or brush alone.

Pettit HRT Paint Reviews

Unepoxy HRT, By Pettit

I love this paint. This is my fifth year, and only have had to do some touch up on the boat bottom. Excellent. – Fran Z.

Love this product have used it many times before on several cruisers and fast boats always greatly impressed with the outcome.



Pettit Prop Coat Barnacle Barrier 1792 Reviews

Works well. George K. published on 03-22-2023

Product worked as expected I will rate the results when I haul the boat in the fall. salvatore s. published on 03-06-2023

Went on somewhat easily, but make sure you mechanically stir the solids in. No amount of mechanical shaking will break up the mass in the bottom of the can. Hopefully it holds up OK. Not expecting long term, but 9-12 months would be nice. Aaron G. published on 07-26-2022

It works, it really does. Gregory C. published on 04-24-2022

I am very happy with Pettit Prop Coat and especially happy with the brush on quart can availability now. Spray can version is never as good with half or more going into the air and is much thinner. I’ve tried many products and PPC is the best so far. Curtis W. published on 03-10-2022

Product works great.

So far so good, extremely easy to apply, hopefully it will work well. published on 05-24-2021

Awesome product!

Sea Hawk Aluma Hawk Paint Reviews

Seahawk aluminum boat paint is perfect. No primer required. I’ve used this paint for two years with excellent results. – William E.

Great product. – Kody L.

Very impress with the paint covering, 1 1/2 half gallon for my 20 feet pontoon.- Cristian V.

Adhesion seems better than most paints even when not fully cured. Liking what I see so far. – Mark L.

Great paint and easy to use. Took a little bit longer to dry than expected, but that was mostly a humidity issue on my end. Looks great and it will buy it again if I need some more for anything.- Eddie C.

Haven’t used it yet but I ordered it because of its good reviews on YouTube.- Jesse H.
Great product. Bruce D.

Excellent product for my Jon Boat- Dennis E.

Looks great! Sam B.

I learned several things about this paint; 1. Make sure you apply it soon after you receive it. If it’s going to sit for a couple of weeks, you will need to stir it very well to break up chunks in the bottom of the can. 2. Two quarts are not enough to paint the bottom hull of a 14-foot aluminum Jon boat. It will take at least 3 quarts for 1 coat. 3. Wear gloves. If you get this on your hands, it will take longer to get off than regular paints. 4. It takes a week to cure. It says so on the can and I can see that. Even though the paint appears dry after a few hours, it’s still tacky. So, you will need to have some patience. Seriously, this is not like painting other objects like wood. Read all the directions and act accordingly. Keep in mind that this is for boats that will routinely be out of the water. It has no anti-fouling properties, and that’s OK if you’re not going to leave it in the water. Personally, I live in a desert area of Arizona, so not an issue for me. – Kevin P.

The best product for aluminum boats.- Robert D.

Purchased an older small used pontoon for our no motor lake. The bottom crud was like cement and I eventually used a sand blaster wand attachment to my power washer to clean of this crud (unreal). Chose Aluma Hawk paint for the sand blasted pontoons and it worked great. This paint needs to be used in a WELL ventilated area!!! I was outdoors painting with a roller on a calm morning and decided to wait till the wind picked up to finish. Tough durable and easy to use. The green makes it look like its from the military surplus! Love it. Certainly the fish will be confused. LOL.- Keith B.

Smooth application.- Brad H.

Very good paint. – Chris T.

I used a roller went on smooth. – Roger C.

The paint match was pretty close to what the previous owner said he put it on the boat… I only did the transom and some touch up on the sides. Good quality paint for an aluminum boat.- Rich H.

I purchased the Aluma Hawk 7031 lite gray – 1 gallon, which gave me 2 coats on the bottom & 1 coat inside. The factory didn’t recommend spraying the paint, so i rolled it & brushed it on. The paint dries quickly, so you have to work fast to maintain a wet edge. I did small sections at a time to make sure I got even coverage. – Russell S.

Haven’t used it yet. – Joe S.

Love this paint. I painted my jon boat years ago with this stuff. It holds up, doesn’t fall off or fade. Added pods to my boat and had to get another quart. The color matched really well.- Steve K.

Great paint, just needs to be shaken before shipping.- Greg M.

This paint if fantastic! It adhered to my boat very well and it only needed one coat to cover evenly. – Arnold B.

Met all my expectations for painting exterior of houseboat. I strongly recommend!- Marsha M.

Best I ever used on alum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Herman B.

The Value is in the Lasting Performance so I shall see. Putting it on, one NEEDS to KNOW what they are dealing with BEFOREHAND as far as Application, in knowing this project should come out perfect. Price of this product should be determined by it’s worthiness over time. Clean Up be SURE to use right Measures and Tools.- Jerry H.
Works good, dries well, one quart did a first and second coat on our jonboat.- Lindsey M.

Anticipating the paint will be great- Paul M.

Great products. – D. Mendez

Great product. Best bottom paint I have used yet. Good ventilation required. -Jon B.
Awesome- Todd Z.

Paint was as advertised. Very pleased with product. Would highly recommend.- Jerry R.
Easy to apply and dried quick, didn’t even really need a second coat but put one on anyway. -Sarah L.

Applying the product now and appears to be coating and covering as described. The painting (job) isn’t complete yet so I can’t comment on life longevity or wearing but satisfied so far. – Jason K.

This appears to be a good quality product but is not real user friendly for DIY due to the fumes and the fact that MEK is needed for clean up. – Douglas L.

So far pretty good, it’s been about six months now since application. I recommend reading the directions very well, it tells you exactly how to thin and apply with the exception of what type of roller to use, I used a 1/4 nap roller but seemed to go on pretty thick. I had to thin it a bit more than what it said in order make it a bit easier, it recommends rolling as best method but I believe spraying would be better. A 16 foot long 5 foot wide vhull took about a gallon and a half to paint but I believe it is because it was going on pretty thick, to spray it says can be thinned 50% but for roller or brush only 10% which seemed to thick and not much coverage, either way you have to move pretty quick because it will flash pretty fast. It dried to touch pretty quick but due to the thickness from rolling it seemed to take forever to fully dry and or cure during which time it was still pretty soft and easily scratched off. After being left to sit and fully cure/harden I will say the stuff seems pretty hard and tough as nails. I used the sand color and if an when the time comes to paint the boat again I would use it again only spray it . I initially bought a gallon and a quart but soon realized it was going to be enough so I bought another gallon and still have about half of it left, I applied two coats to the entire boat both inside and out.- David P.

Great- Todd Z.

The paint went on as expected will have to wait and see how it holds up.- Howard B.

Great product. – Rober P. May 10, 2023

(I) put the first coat on and it’s awesome. Kurt S., May 9, 2023

Paint is as good as it appeared…FOLLOW PREPARATION DIRECTIONS, and the process of painting will go smoothly. We got two coats onto a 16′ boat, did it in a 65 degree garage, used a 6″ foam roller (with some cut-in with a brush), and it looks great! Stephen K. May 8, 2023

Follow the application directions and you will be satisfied. – Brian F. April 23, 2023

Aluma Hawk Boat Paint is the best paint you can buy for DIY. And you can’t go wrong buying it from Bottom Paint Store. 2 great companies come together. James H. April 14, 2023

I used this brand on the outside of my goes on thick dries fast and holds up well. Dan M. March 31, 2023

Good product would buy it again. Martin B. March 26, 2023

Great paint for aluminum boat. This the second order for a second boat. First boat painted 3 years ago still looks great. Put it on as directed and it will work. Clayton D. March 13, 2023

Sea Hawk Cukote Paint Reviews

I thought the value was great even though I haven’t used it yet due to my marina being backed up with haul outs so Ill probably get hauled out after hurricane season is over, plus it will be cooler then as well.- Michael W.

The quart I bought was surprisingly heavy but instructions were clear and it was easy to apply. Certainly recommend gloves and a disposable brush. – Peter S.

Boat had never been painted and I prepped and applied 2 coats below the waterline and 3 coats on the waterline . Held up for 2 years in coastal NC waters . Very little growth to remove . Pressure washer blew most of it off . I would call Sea Hawk Cukote a very good product. – D. Bordeaux

After more than 40 years experimenting with different bottom paints on many boats, I’d have to say Sea Hawk paints are the best (least fouling, longest-lasting) ablative paints I have found. – Stephen P.

Quick delivery good pricing. – Robert S.

I kept my sailboat on the Chesapeake in an area with warm brackish water very conducive to barnacle growth. Cukote worked better. – Robert P.

Excellent product. Alfred L.

IMO, this is the best bottom paint. Only requires one coat. – Gerald D.

It is on our boat now and we needed some touch up. – Carol S.

Great product to use on boat bottoms. – Jeffrey R.

Great product and worth every penny!! Joe F., March 3, 2023

Long lasting. William G., Feb 25, 2023

Sea Hawk Tuff Stuff Reviews

Cleaned the surface, highly recommend a fan or 2 when using. Does have strong odor like any reducer or thinner. – Peter P.

A high quality epoxy paint. I will order it again. – Edward O.

Applied well, pretty happy so far! – Sam B.

Love it. Easy to work with and tough when cured ! Easy to wet sand also in prep for color coats ! – James W.

Very easy to use, just follow the directions. I have not put the boat in the water yet, but I don’t forsee any problems. – Sharon T.

The Sea Hawk Tuff Stuff was very easy to work with and the 1:1 ratio made mixing easy and error free. It went on easily and dried quickly so that I could apply 2 coats plus bottom paint In one day on a 46ft. Motor Yacht. The Sea Hawk Tropicoat was also easy to go on ( I recommend thinning as the paint is extremely heavy with copper). It dries quickly and have a hard service in 15 minutes. I am very happy with both products. – George M.

Great primer, the name says it all. – Eric H.

Very good product. – Nicholas C.
