Line X on an outboard bracket?

Anybody ever tried this? I did a few quick searches online, but not much luck. I'm looking for an alternative to awlgrip. I can't stand when brackets begin to chip away that are covered in awlgrip. Line X seems like it holds up quite well, for boat hulls at least. Bracket is bare aluminum now. Looking for some other options out there, open to all suggestions.
Thanks

Re: Line X on an outboard bracket?

Any coating is going to chip and degrade to some degree in an ocean environment. I think Line X type products would work but how long? The real problem is water getting under it. Powder coating would be another good option but then you run into problems when something dings it. You also have to consider electrolysis from the motor as well.

The bracket I have is all anodized. It started life as a shiny silver and has over years turned to a dull silver/gunmetal appearance. If you are willing to go to a flat Line X type finish, I would consider having your bracket bead blasted or hard anodized. It may not look like new forever, but it would look consistently the same.

Look into line-x xs-650. More $$ but supposed to be really tough stuff.

My bracket on my Grady was done with Rhino liner and has held up really well.
