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.

My boat is a forty foot Beneteau sailboat. I had the bottom done last fall with the regular hydrocoat. I sailed from South Carolina down to Miami in October. Within two weeks of being anchored in Miami I had barnacles growing on the bottom. I had a diver clean the bottom. After a few weeks more the bottom was getting covered with slime and grass. Well I had the bottom cleaned again in April for my sail back to South Carolina. The water was cold then so the paint did well. Buy July with the water temp at 86 deg and using the boat almost everyday with in weeks of another cleaning the bottom was covered with barnacles again. I am very dissatisfied with this paint and am trying to find something better for this haul out in a few more weeks. I want ablative paint, does anyone have any suggestions?

                    Used this product last year and it protected all season long in salt water. Bottom cleaned easily with power washer when hauled out at the end of the season. Water-based paint means easy application and easy clean-up from what can be a messy job. Worked so well, I'm applying again this year. Could have gotten a second season except for places where old bottom paint I couldn't scrap off last year has loosened over the winter.

                            I have been using it in MA on a 40' sailboat for 2 years. No hard growth but lots of brown/green slime. Easy to brush off but annoying. I did a test last year with SR on one side and standard on the other. I saw no difference at any time during the 5 month season. Save your money and don't bother with the SR is my conclusion.
                            That said, easy to use and water clean up is a joy. Also my previous micron had the same slime issues
