In the sport of rowing, the weight of the sloop matters as much as the skill and endurance of the athletes. Erik Nooitgedagt Yachtpainting understands this principle and was excited to take on the task of coating an all-aluminum 31’ (9.4m) rowing sloop with the complete ALEXSEAL® system. Our latest advanced components were utilized in this project including Fairing Compound 202, which boasts greater flexibility, extreme temperature tolerance and a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio. After initial fairing, Nooitgedagt continued with Fine Filler 303, ALEXSEAL’s high-build epoxy filler which was followed by Epoxy Primer 442 and the sloop’s vibrant International Orange Premium Topcoat 501.
“I have used ALEXSEAL for the past 8 years on all my new build projects,” Nooitgedagt exclaims. In just 8 years, Nooitgedagt Yachtpainting has coated 115 new builds in the full ALEXSEAL system along with over 50 refit projects. Nooitgedagt has over 23 years of yacht painting experience and after being introduced to ALEXSEAL in 2010, he has never looked back. “ALEXSEAL is a very high-quality paint system, and with the proper maintenance it will easily last 10 or more years.”
Nooitgedagt Yachtpainting has been fairing and painting boats of all sizes from 23’ (7m) to 60’ (18m) in Sneek, The Netherlands since 2008. Nooitgedagt explains, “ALEXSEAL is an easy product to work with and the fairing is very smooth and sands perfectly.” He concludes, “The technical support from Marcel Voskamp [ALEXSEAL Technical Service Manager] and Verf van der Feer [distributor] is always good. Although we rarely call upon them, when we do need them they are always there.”
Erik Nooitgedagt is one of hundreds of professional applicators and yacht painters that have put their full trust in the ALEXSEAL system. We are ever grateful for their support over the years and the thousands of projects they have completed in ALEXSEAL.
