TESTIMONIALS

“I purchased the Wearlon boat coating for my 20 foot aluminum
crestliner boat. I was experiencing significant hull cleaning problems from leaving the boat in the water for the summer at Lake Erie. The product was very easy to apply with a roller set within a day so I could put the boat back onto the trailer. I found the product did a excellent job resisting the growth of algae/crud from the lake. Most of the growth came off while the boat was running (probably due to the slickness of the coating) and I found if I did a short power washing once a month all unwanted material was removed. I used this coating for two years before selling the boat and would recommend it for algae/junk minimization.” – Ken Huckaby, 20′ Crestline

“The acceleration is incredible – you gotta hang on. I can beat anybody on our lake. Went from 77/78 MPH to 81 MPH” – Al Craig, 300 HP Sea Doo

.

“Stuck on there better than my topside paint. Looks very good. Tough. Made a big difference; hold no dirt or algae. Got 3 MPH faster on top end. I’m very happy”. – David Morrill, 18′ V-Hull

.

“Put Speedcoat-49 on the logs of my pontoon and picked up 2 MPH at WOT. I only have a 60 HP Merc Bigfoot! The next pontoon will absolutely have this stuff on. Extremely durable. No touch-ups yet. Fall end of season clean-up is a snap. The boat is typically on a lift during boating season. I painted the Speedcoat-49 one inch above the water line. My only regret is I should have painted the entire log. I still get the typical staining/streaking on the aluminum upper portion of the log. I used the gray color and am satisfied with that choice. No regrets!!” Tom Giesen, pontooner

“It has been every thing you said it was. I will certainly use it again. So simple to apply! It was noticeably faster top end. Thanks, Gary Baczewski”

“Scott, my application is a bit unusual, I used your Speedcoat on the bottom of the floats for my airplane. I am off the water pretty quick so hole shot and improved acceleration aren’t really applicable to me, my hole-shot to flight of 6-8 seconds may be a little quicker, but wind plays a big factor. The reason I applied Speedcoat was for durability and non-permeable reasons, thus far your product seems to be excellent on both accounts. The aircraft is on the water from mid-May through mid-October, clean seems to be easier on the bottom where Speedcoat is applied. Other operating parameters are takeoff and landing at about 50 mph, aircraft weight is around 1850 lbs. Overall I am happy with your product.” – Steve Shallbetter, Float Plane

“Consistently faster with it than without. We easily get 1 mph faster on smaller outboards” and “It seemed we were faster/better than our competitors after applying. We are positive on it” Tom Kling @ TK Skiffs

.

“It is MUCH easier to clean the hull at the end of the season.” Mark Hogan, 16′ Boston Whaler

We have used your product for five years and won the Pro Tunnel Tour for the USA in 2007. We came 2nd in Formula Two at the Worlds this year, 2012. -Eric Orchard, carbon fiber race boat

“Speedcoat -49 is a great product. My speed increased by 4mph, handling about the same. Hold shot and acceleration did improve a little. Loading and launching made a big difference it would slide right off the trailer. Cleaning was easy 1/2 time.” -Wesley Perry, Pontooner in brackish water

“I use Speed coat on all my racing boats and the ones I build for my friends . My daughter and I race stock outboards with APBA . I won the 2019 summer nations in 25SS runabout and placed 2nd in A stock Runabout . My daughter Kelsey placed third as well in A stock runabout . All three boats have Speed coat 49 on them.” Dave Bennett, stock hydro racer

“Put product on boat first time labor dat 2019, it loosened up, tuned faster, and went faster. we picked up 1.25 mph from the usual 65 mph” John Runne multiple National Championship winner, stock hydroplane

Hey Scott, it’s Bobby Long. Just wanted to follow up and let you know, thus far, the experience I have had with Wearlon Speedcoat 49 on my 1976 27 Catalina sailboat. After letting it set dry for ten days the first thing I noticed as did my friends was that the light blue of the initial color turned a rich, darker blue and it is beautiful!!! Completely matches my life line covers, sail covers and bimini. This next part is funny. On launch day, the fellahs from the marina put the lifting straps fore and aft of the keel as normal and began to lift the boat slowly off its stanchions. Before the boat cleared the stanchion, approx. 1″ lifted, the front strap simply slipped off the front of the hull. No damage done but many were surprised. We had to tie the straps together so they wouldn’t slip out. So we get her in the water and I begin motoring to my slip. She idles at 4.8 Knots according to two gps smart phones. Idle is at 750 rpm!!! She’s manuverable with just the thrust of the water from the exhaust. So now we do the “W.O.T.” test. wide open throttle. This boat has a max hull speed of 7.5mph. She ran 8.5 knots!!! that’s roughly 9.5 mph, (i think). 2500 rpm. The transom was actually being sucked down with the water approx. 12″ from coming over the back. For kicks we had two men move all the way forward to push the bow down to see if she’d plane. No dice there. I think its impossible to plane a sailboat so i will forego the Nobel Prize for defying physics at this time. Nonetheless, she’s fast. We sailed too! Light wind, 150 jib only 3 knot wind, 3 knot speed. That’s 100% efficient!!! None of us could put our finger on it but it seemed that the boat rode differently in 2 to 3 foot chop. Much softer ride as if we let the air out of the shocks or something. My friend Evan exclaimed, “Something is Different About It.” Evan is an avid sailor. Seemed the boat would settle through the waves instead of hitting off them. Weird!!! Well I am sold so far. So are my pals. We like the fact that the paint doesn’t pollute like vc 17. We’re gonna scuba the bottom after a while. Hope its as tough as it is slick. -Bobby Long, 27′ Catalina ANDREA LOEL
