Sea Tow San Diego Puts Paint Durability to the Test
Sea Tow’s San Diego, California operation is responsible for the safe recovery and salvage of stranded vessels along with mariner services including re-fueling and jump starts. They manage a large area stretching from Newport Beach, California, USA south to the waters of coastal Mexico with a fleet of six boats.
From Jared Stubbs, Owner, Sea Tow San Diego:
“This is the toughest paint I have seen, bar none.”
Recently, Sea Tow San Diego purchased a SAFE Boat Defender 250 from the United States Coast Guard which needed some fresh paint. Unfortunately, within just a few weeks of receiving a professionally applied paint job, the material began cracking and falling off of the boat. A suggested solution was to simply touch up the paint, but this also yielded poor results. Frustrated owner and lead Captain, Jared Stubbs turned to ALEXSEAL’s Western U.S. Sales Manager, Alex Sandas for help. “He was extremely helpful. He even set us up with a painter to complete the job,” Stubbs recalls. Joe Connors of Marina Shipyard in Long Beach, California prepped and painted the boat in Sea Tow’s distinctive yellow and black color scheme.
