This is a proprietary polyester resin-based bottom finish, originally

formulated to minimize friction on the bottom of air boats.

 

 

Its consistency is similar to the flow coat (clear gel coat) used

as a final finish on the inside of race boat hulls.  But it includes

surface curing additives, gloss additives, and most importantly,

dry film lubricants that float to the surface during the cure cycle.

 

 

Background:

Unlike conventional boats where the challenge is to simply reduce

the frictional drag of water, air boats have the unique challenge of

needing to be able to glide smoothly over pond lilies and other

marine growth. Over the years, enthusiasts have experimented with

a number of bottom treatments to reduce the risk of dynamic

fouling and to improve their speeds over these growths.
