Q:....buying older boat that has some surface (no water penetration) cracks in the gelcoat. Would this be an appropriate product to cover those cracks...giving the added benefit of having the non-slip surface?Asked on 4/1/2014 by CC Rider
A:Thank you for your question.
If you are asking about covering gelcoat cracks in the floor---I would first us a filler such as our 3m filler # 81513 before applying the Tuff Coat. While the Tuff Coat may initially fill and cover the existing cracks---they may eventually print through. To ensure a top quality job--fill the voids with appropriate filler before applying.Answered on 4/8/2014 by Anonymous

Q:I am considering replacing all the carpet in my fish and ski with Tuff Coat. I have a lot of little bare feet in my boat often so I need to know if it gets very hot when in the sun.Asked on 9/24/2013 by ibassfish from Bedford, TX
Q:I recently applied this product on fiberglass and I have a few areas that are bubbling up/peeling. What is recommended to fix these areas?Asked on 4/12/2011 by 1800Bowrider from Belle Fourche, South Dakota
A:Some cleaners will have a reaction of this sort. If this is an area that you had to use cleaner on before applying the tuff coat this could explain the bubbling occurrence. Unfortunately the best thing to do is to remove the coating from these areas and reapply it after washing the areas with water to remove any chemicals that may be present underneath.Answered on 6/8/2011 by Justin from Overtons

Q:I recently had a carpet put on the floor of my pontoon boat (2 years). It is impossible to care for and keep clean.
I definitely want to get this product to replace the carpet later on this spring. Can you tell me how to remove the carpet and adhesive to prepare for this primer and coating product?Asked on 1/3/2010 by Grandnet from Julian, NC
A:If it was glued down then you should remove anything off of the deck that would keep the carpet from coming up. Then find a good starting point, usually in a corner and pull it up as carefully as possible. Then just lightly sand the top of the deck before you apply the tuff coat primer.Answered on 1/6/2010 by Justin from Overton's Technician
Q:Does this product adhere well to aluminum?Asked on 1/2/2010 by Anonymous
A:You will use the metal primer for aluminum and steel and that adheres very well to metal and the actual tuff coat non-skid coating will adhere directly to the primer. You will have to use the primer for the non-skid coating to work out properly.Answered on 1/5/2010 by Justin from Overton's Technician
Q:Yes, I have a 14ft Jon Boat Alum. and I would like to use this on the inside. Will one Gallon of Overton's Rubberized Nonskid Marine Coating, along with 1 qt. of Primer be enough? Boat size 14'Semi-V with 3' bottom sides 20" in height.Asked on 12/30/2009 by Norm from Bruceton, TN
A:1 quart of primer and one gallon of tuff coat (2 coats tuff coat needed for proper application) cover 40-50 square feet. Square footage is found by multiplying the length by the width. Use that to find out how much square feet you have, and then divide by 40 square feet per gallon and that is how many gallons you will need for one coat.Answered on 1/6/2010 by Justin from Overton's Technician
Q:Do you need to apply 2 coats, and if so do need to reapply the primer over the first coat, or just apply the 2nd coat over the first coat.Asked on 12/29/2009 by Yourboy from Lexington, SC
A:No, just apply 1 coat. You need to apply 1 thick coat.Answered on 12/29/2009 by Bryant from Tech
