    I have polished toons on my QX25 and am having a clear ceramic coating applied.  I was curious if anyone else had tried this??  I used sharkhide on my last BENNY and it was only good above the water line...

    what's the name of the ceramic coating? I saw someone else was in the process recently, but I'm not aware of anyone that already has it done.

    How was it compared to sharkhide? I just did a little looking and it looks to be quite a high end product?

    I used to use sharkhide but it only protected above the water line.  I will let you know how the ceramic product holds up.   I am only a few weeks in, but so far so good.  Sharkhide tech support will tell it will not last below the water line.....

    Don't need Sharkhide tech support to tell me that it doesn't protect below the water line. All I have to do is look at my boat......

    I'm just curious how much more it costs than sharkhide plus it looks pretty permanent where sharkhide is removable with some lacquer thinner.

    around a thousand based on length and # of toons.

    I am very educated on the nano ceramic coatings, I own a Tint World franchise in Alabama and we sell nano ceramic products. I have used it on my new 2575GCW and Mercury motor cowl with good results. Send me a PM and I can get you some information about it and how to use it.

    30 days sitting in the water and ceramic coating is still working like a champ!!! Scum line wipes off with almost no effort...

    Does the manufacture advise or have a guarantee about how long it should last?

    No direct experience, but I heard a lot of good things about Dulon 1+2.

    I was just seeing this online used on cars. Amazing that this application works too.
