I bought four or five of the large size tubs for the job. Used old wash cloths to rub it on with two of us taking an hour or two. Had lots left over, maybe two tubs. After five hundred and sixty miles of travel in the ICW between Galveston and Panama City there was still some on the aft end of the hull.

I had the boat out of the water here in humid Florida once for over a month, and it leaked like a sieve for a few days - normally ran a dry bilge.
