    Neverwet hydrophobic spray on rc boat hull

    A couple of years back I did some testing with a product called Neverwet on one of my 3 pt hydros.



    Some of the commenters were skeptical because they felt that the paint wasn't allowed to dry long enough. I set out to do more testing and let the coats dry thoroughly.
    Almost two years later after painting, I was able to test the coating one more time:


    The product is not without merit though. I works awesome as an electronics waterproofer. I've treated the GPS unit on the video as well as other electronics and it does really well in that capacity.

    LOL Andy. Nope. That was back when I was still really weak from my sickness and the water was really high and swift. I didn't want to become a statistic.

    Its all about Surface Tension witch is what is slowing you down when you spray your boat. The sanding allows the wood to hold water a little witch brakes down Surface Tension as it always allows its self to move thru the surface of itself.

    Now if we could brake the surface tension even more by say rubbing hard soap on your hull after sanding it I think you would get a little more speed out of it but not for vary long as the soap would where off. Maybe we could use fish slime which also brakes it down I believe.
