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.

    Comments about BottomShield Antifouling Paint:

    I hauled my boat out of the water for the winter and prepared the boat for a fresh coat of bottom paint. I keep my boat in the water year round. This paint coated all the surfaces easily and protects the boat from all the little creatures that like to attach to my boat.

            I use the Bottom Shield Antifouling paint on almost all our bottom paint jobs at my shop in NC. It is an effective paint when seeking protection from plant life and it's an affordable product as well. Goes on easily and lasts 3-5 years in this fresh-lake environment.

                  Bought this at BOGO. 2 gallons easily covered my 37' Trawler. Applied easily, dried fast and color looks good. I used it last year and it held up well. Now, if only I could convince the marina to let me paint in the sling so I don't have to crawl around!
