most folks that I've heard around here use either coat it or gluvit. I don't know that you would need either of these with a glass boat.

aluminum sticks and grabs on rocks. the coating is to lessen the sticking and grabbing as much as it is for actual protection.

someone will help with the actual application of either of these 2 products their pro's and con's.

nothing, its good to go. Cant get slicker than glass. Only reason people use glovit are the metal boats that want to slide like a glass boat.
Hard to beat a glass boat, i can row it on wet grass

best protection for the bottom of a drift boat: don't run into stuff.

you've got a glass boat. there's no need to put anything on the bottom of it. wood requires bottom protection and aluminum requires coating so it doesn't stick to rocks. glass boats don't need anything.

now, get out and row! you'll have a blast.
