Goes on easy and dries fast and hard

This paint went on much easier than I expected and dried smoother than I thought it would. I have done bottom jobs before with other paints. This one is the best so far.

Doest work ever since CuO down to 28%

I have used Bottom Shield for 10 years, every year the Copper Oxide content is lower and lower, yet the price increases. Now that its down to only 28% Cuprous it doesnt work...Read complete review

I have used Bottom Shield for 10 years, every year the Copper Oxide content is lower and lower, yet the price increases. Now that its down to only 28% Cuprous it doesnt work well in Lake Michigan anymore. Slime, growth and scum in a short time. Never had to really power wash at end of season, but now growth is horrible as the paint doesnt work. West Marine needs to boost the CuO percentage as it simply doesn work any more.

          I hear it's going to be discontinued next year, I hear the EPA is making the manufactures switch to a water base product. So our boats are going to sit in water with a water base product Hmm.
          I don't think it's going to be as good and I just know it's going to cost more!

              I have used this bottom paint since my first bottom job in 1995. It is easy to apply and relatively inexpensive. It is durable and effective (in fresh water) beyond its recommended re-coating time. Easy to brush off surface algae that grows between repainting times.
