“Why We Roll” – Epifanes Poly-urethane Rocks The Roller!

Epifanes Roll On

Feb 11, 2021

Who could have imagined it would get this easy? With Epifanes Poly-urethane yacht coatings, all it takes is rolling and it rolls beautifully — with a four-inch, high-density foam roller and without all the painstaking overspray protection that spray painting requires or the double-fisted duty of rolling and tipping.

The crew at Epifanes headquarters in Thomaston, Maine has always known that all you needed was a good roller and good paint. Epifanes paint can deliver incredible results: a head-turning glassy finish — on fiberglass, wood, aluminium, or steel. And the painting was easy. More recently, Epifanes took their rolling demo on the road, meeting with professional applicators who quickly shared their enthusiasm and took the roll-only technique in-house.

Prep work? Full disclosure: There’s no escaping the importance of superior and thorough surface prep. Sorry. The work of refinishing lies in the pre-painting effort—and Epifanes will reward your prep work like no other paint. Once you put the roller into the paint tray, the rest is pretty simple. Just keep it going. Be consistent. Maintain a wet edge and work quickly, but don’t rush the job. Be smooth. You’ll see the beauty of your labours immediately. Amazingly, that beauty will deepen as the leveling properties in the paint take effect. As the Epifanes coating cures, a glassy finish appears as a rich gloss with mirror-like reflection. What’s more – and this is a significant plus – unlike spraying, rolling Epifanes puts more paint on the boat. That greater mil thickness gives you a tougher, more resilient layer of colour that resists scratches and lasts longer.

Ready to rock your masterpiece? You can do this! Watch Rolling Epifanes Poly-urethane on YouTube for a detailed, step-by-step demo, and look for Epifanes Poly-urethane at your favourite marine store. Got questions? Give them a call at 705-527-9612 or toll-free at 1-800-269-0961.

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
