    Default Graphite Lubricant Paint

    I have seen this disused on other forums. Some get it from John Deer, some from www.agspecialty.com EZ-Slide. Has anyone used it in Alaska? Sounds like it might work very well in skinny water. Any comments?

    Default graphite epoxy

    look up "Coat-it". Expensive in town. Creative Wholesale (online) is the way to go.

    I got some graphite powder from Alaska Lazertech or www.Skiffkits.com and mixed it with epoxy to create a bottom coat for my trailer boat. It took about 3 coats but made a pretty nice black bottom. Advantage is if I screw up and need to patch I can just sand it to create a little bite and patch with glass/epoxy and then recoat with the graphite epoxy mix. It seems to work for me. Without knowing your needs I can not say if it is relevant for your. The graphite didn't seem terribly expensive, came in quart containers I believe. He also had the System III epoxy.
