In the pursuit of enhanced vessel protection without the drawbacks of traditional bottom paints, a Sea Ray owner faced the challenge of deteriorating white bottom paint and the constant need for sanding and reapplication. Opting for a transformative solution, the hull was meticulously blasted to remove existing bottom paint, revealing compromised gelcoat underneath.

Choosing Poseidon Extreme in white, two coats were applied to fortify the hull's integrity and provide a superior aesthetic. The final touch, Hull Pro, sealed the deal, offering not only an additional layer of protection but a synergistic coating that complemented Poseidon Extreme's attributes and offers both protection and performance.

EXTREME PROTECTION

Rather than just removing bottom paint and repairing the gelcoat, the owner of this Sea Ray chose the Poseidon Extreme and Hull Pro combination for this vessel for the following reasons:

  • OSMOSIS PROTECTION

    Poseidon Extreme not only shields against osmosis but also addresses underlying coating issues, stabilizing any existing layers on the hull.

    STABILIZING TIECOAT

    Serving as a potent tiecoat, Poseidon Extreme creates a seamless bond with Hull Pro, forming a unified defense against fouling and environmental challenges.

  • DURABLE EPOXY PRIMER

    As an epoxy primer, Poseidon Extreme establishes a robust foundation, ensuring adhesion and compatibility with subsequent coatings like Hull Pro.

    SWITCHING AWAY FROM ANTI-FOULING PAINTS

    Ideal for those transitioning away from traditional anti-fouling bottom paints, Poseidon Extreme and Hull Pro present a compelling combination for superior hull protection.

Transforming surfaces & converting from bottom paint

The careful application of Poseidon Extreme started with the removal of bottom paint to address underlying gelcoat issues.

After removal of the bottom paint, the gelcoat finish did not look great. Repairing and replacing the damaged gelcoat layer on the vessel’s hull is not only costly, but labor intensive. Choosing Poseidon Extreme is not only cost effectively, but eco-friendly for the long-term.

Applying Poseidon Extreme in white not only enhanced the vessel's appearance but also provided a stable canvas for the final application of Hull Pro. This transformative process ensures a durable and long-lasting defense against the elements.

A STRATEGIC INVESTMENT IN LONGEVITY

Choosing Poseidon Extreme proved to be a strategic investment, sparing the owner from the recurring costs and labor-intensive efforts associated with maintaining and reapplying traditional bottom paints, or repairing gel coats. By fortifying the compromised gelcoat and avoiding the risks of future issues, the upfront investment in Poseidon Extreme translates into long-term cost-efficiency and reduced maintenance demands.

Beyond addressing osmosis concerns, this epoxy primer serves as a stabilizing tiecoat, creating a resilient foundation for the final Hull Pro application. As a united front, Poseidon Extreme and Hull Pro redefine vessel protection, offering a seamlessly protected horizon for those seeking longevity, cost-efficiency, and superior defense against the elements.
