Default Spray in Liners! which one to apply on my aluminum boat?

I have an 18' ft customsemi V heavy gaugebare aluminum 1/8"hull I'm going to spray a liner material to theinterior. I'm looking for Gator Liner product to purchase anda friend who has offered to apply for me with the appropriate spray gun....He said just get the product and he'll apply. Only problem, I'm not finding Gatorproduct for self application..:banghead

Anybody have opinions or experience with Gator Lineror any of the other liner products I may purchase for self application? Oh, the Gator Liner was suggested as it's supposed to be less $$$$ compared to other liner products but that's not necessaryif other products are better as I plan on keeping the boat for several years.

Thanks in advance for your replies..

Jimmy

I have Line X now and had rhino in the past, I will always put line x in my trucks looks good and dosent fade. Rhino started to fad after a couple years and gets chunks taking out of it. line x is harder, I can set a 5 galbucket full ofbait and water and drive down the rode and it rides there.

The self apply deal might have gotten (sorry im a neck) better but they use to chalk up and get on you and your close and it was a mess, but thats been 8 years ago.

No I haven't but I'll give it a search...

Thanks Josh for the suggestion...I've search google and read the same about fading and chipping from other products and Linex being the preferred application...Just wanted to get more opinions from forum members whom may have first hand experience.

I second the Line-X. I used it to coat the ramp door and floor of my motorcyle trailer and it still looks new today, 4 years later!

My son and I did...Turned out great, you would be very pleased with the coating. Go to a auto body and paint supply store. If you need or want to know the product name I'll call tomorrow...it's midnight there.

Thanks Tuna Man! I would greatly appreciate it..I plan to apply in the next week if all goes well as I have done all the prep work,,,Just want to make sure I get a good product to finish the job.

Also, I'm not set on a color yet...I was thinkingspider web black over white...What color did you go with?

I was going to mention color if you replied. We ...my son went with a medium green. It made all the difference, both with heat, glare, sound, and traction...check back tomorrow and I'll post what we used. We were a first timer for that DIY project. It can get quite messy and advise gloves when mixing the 2 parts together.

by the way...1 gal did a 16' jon boat 3 coats. We kept applying till all used and not to waste any.
