I know it can be done. The big question "is it worth it"?

This thread pretty much sold me on the legitimacy of the Ceramic Coat. This was posted on RDP. Crazy before / after pics. These guys in Havasu do a lot of boats. I want to say its $70 a foot.

Did it to our Fountain with our product. Going on season 3. Havenít waxed it for 3 years. All I Spray on is our world famous Bead Maker. And every time I wipe it down itís like it was waxed a week before. The shine with ceramic coating is amazing as well.

I have all my cars, boats, and trailers ceramic coated. It is a game changer for long term appearance and ease of cleaning. All my stuff is kept indoors too which also helps but the stuff is amazing.

Flight Club had both Skaters done before they went into the water for the Miami show for a week. Came out and hosed them off and back to Michigan they went. He said it was amazing.

Thanks for the great info.....do you think it would be smart to have it done on a brand new boat?

A good part of the value is the paint/gel correction that goes into it first. Everything has to be perfect before it goes on because itís gonna stay that way for a few years.
