Default Fiberglass drift boat bottom

im looking at installing a protective bottom on my fiberglass drift boat. Looking at a uhmw plastic Teflon just haven't found out if I can glue it in. Anyone else have any ideas or input on what they have used

What brand boat is it? If it's a Clacka I'd leave it alone.

The concern I'd have with putting something over the surface(even though it's a Teflon type material) is that it may make the boat "sticky" when sliding through shallow water or when you do hit a big one

Take your time and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!

This stuff really works well, you could plug leaks in Hoover Dam. Product has been around for close to 70 years that I know of, something to be said for that.

You might call Hyde, I think they offer an option of adding uhmw plastic Teflon bottom, (800) 444-HYDE Ext. 108.

Give these guys a call. Adipose Boatworks
They do a roll on Teflon bottom. Cost about $600 and 3 days.
A Claka would be more because of the dimpled bottom.
They had one at there factory very smooth.
