Anti foul Bottom paint

Post by ctsailor55 » Sat Apr 27, 2019 11:26 am

Greetings. What type of anti fouling bottom pain are you using and where do you sail? I'm in NE FL and there is no consensus on this but I know warmer water will be an issue. The racing here is not as competitive as other parts of the country so most people don't really care down here.

VC 17M Extra, Lake Erie. Can get two coats out of 2 quarts and bottom needs minimal cleaning over our 7month season.

VC off shore. It doesn't make a huge difference in normal or big winds but in the super light stuff it does make a difference.
