This water-based ablative offers excellent multi-season protection against all types of fouling. Its innovative technology replaces noxious solvents found in most bottom paints with water, resulting in easier application and cleanup, with no heavy solvent smell. Hydrocoat’s ablative surface wears away with use, exposing fresh biocides while eliminating paint buildup and the need for sanding. Its unlimited dry time to launch allows for painting in the fall.

  • Type: Water-based ablative
  • Recommended Usage: All fouling waters
  • Biocide: 40% Cuprous oxide
  • Additives: PTFE
  • Number of Coats Recommended: 2-3
  • Coverage: 430sq.ft./gal.
  • Drying Time: To overcoat 3hrs; To launch; 6hrs. @ 70°F
  • Thinner: Water

    I have a 2001 Bayliner Ciera Sunbridge 3055, I keep it on a trailer at home in the off season, from November to April, I was getting it ready for the 2013 season, servicing the engines, waxing etc. I noticed that my antifouling paint was in need of refreshing after 3 seasons. I called West Marine and described what I had and the lady on the phone recommended Pettit Hydrocoat. I ordered two gallons and it arrived in three days. I pressure washed the bottom of the boat and the drives/props, Then I jacked the boat off the trailer (use caution) and blocked it. I then painted over the trailer bunks, three coat. The next day I lowered the boat on the trailer and painted the rest. Two gallons, three generous coats on a 30ft boat. Goes on easy, water clean up, good finish, minimal smell. The paint dries very fast so don't put too much at the time in the pan because it will make a skin on top. Can't talk durability yet but thus far, very satisfied.

    Easy to apply and cleaned up very easily with water. One gallon was more than enough for 30 foot Sea Ray. Appeared to provide an even coat with no appearance issues where brush versus roller was used. Won't know whether it works until next year. Only issue is top of can and rim had thick globs of dried paint - when mixed in these created bumps in finished coat.

        Comments about Hydrocoat Antifouling Paint:

        This product is a great high quality paint - goes on clean and easily. It's durable (4 or 5 years between re-coats) and has a nice appearance. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is I find that the tone changes throughout the contents - I mixed it very well and mixed between coats/usages and still found some change in tone.

                        Petit Hydrocoat went on very smoothly overtop of existing bottom paint. Simple clean up too! Time will tell as to effectiveness as season progresses! Too soon to make recommendation yet.
