Prep is the key. Clean and etch the concrete well. 2 coats. Use a 18" roller to speed it up. Paint the gas curbs first.
Get the darkest color possible IMO that matches the color of the dirt around you. Especially if here's a lot of pet traffic with wet muddy feet.
I've only used a med gray color and chickendd out last time makin it dark brown and wished I had gone darker.
With proper prep the only thin that will take it off the floor is something hard enough or heavy enough to actually gouge the concrete.
Thanks, I'll look into it. We have a local sherwin Williams and I believe the father in law has a commercial acct

Decommissioned keg with the spear removed that is used as an extra 15 gallon fermenter.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Ended up with a new actuator and brake lines (didn't realize they had recently rusted out). So it tows quite a bit better.

Side story. I get the boat home last night, and the pin holding the tongue assembly in place doesn't budget. I finally bang it out with a hammer, but the assembly isn't sliding out no matter how hard I yank on it. Finally, I realize what the problem is. The winch is still hooked up to the boat. Unhooked it and everything slid right out.

Between that, and leaving my ski on the platform when I pulled the boat and trailer over to the dealership to have this all done, my senility is becoming more evident. I'm just glad the ski stayed on the platform at over 50 mph all the way to the dealership.
