    I can get a linex spray on liner for a good price the only drawback is they only spray black, has anyone used black and how hot does it get. The floor and decks on an aluminum boat get pretty hot here in SC. Thanks

    I would think black would get real hot. Tuff-coat sells a liner specifically for marine applications that comes in several colors. Both Cabelas and Bass Pro market the stuff.

    I've heard nothing but good about tuff-coat. Good prep is the key to any coating job though.

    I know folks have done line-x but not sure how it worked out. They spray it pretty thick, might be heavy, but don't really know.

    We have linex in our boat going on 6 years now. Its good stuff. It shows a little wear in heavy traffic areas, but other than that it looks like it did 6 years ago. It is also as green as grass, just a little lighter that the out side of the boat. It was done at Lee Summit Mo phone number 816-535-7455 they might not still be in business, but I think they could tell you how to make it any color you like. It gets hot in July (ha ha) but it is worth it the other 11 months. I think you will like a liner which everone you use.

    Maybe check at a different location. They can make linex in just about any color you want now. I also think they can go thinner than the truck beds if you are worried about weight.

    Mark, I have had to boats that have had Linex products. The floors in either boat does not get hot. I am very satisfied with the product. My jon boat I had done in a color, and linex can be sprayed any color you want. Its higher than black cause they have to run that color completly out of the machine and hoses to run black again.

    my triton 1756 sc has a spray in liner from the factory, very sturdy stuff, i assume it is the same as line x, but it is tough on the knees and other exposed skin if you rub up against it.

    A new water based product on the market that home boat builders are using with good results. Requires the use of a hook and loop roller.
