      Best Uses

        27 ft Cruiser, salt water. Boat stays in the water for 9 months. Applied 1 coat over a more expensive ablative paint and then doubled up near the stern where it gets more wear. Stays clean throughout the season. Beginning of the second year I applied touch up where needed, finishing off the gallon. This year will receive a full coat. Very happy with the result. Does wipe off on your hand and scrub brush in the water.
        Note to West Marine: Please help keep this product cost low.

                          Painted the bottom of a 17' boat and used about 1/3 gallon. Will get at least another coat when ready. Hope it lasts. Only time will tell.

                              Where we moor our sailboat there is always a problem with the bottom getting fouled. In the past even the most expensive paint would allow some minor fouling on the bottom. This fall when the boat was pulled and I was winterizing it the head of the boat yard came over to me and asked what type of anti-fouling paint I used. After I told him his response was "Do not change that paint, I have never seen a boat come out after a season of use with no fouling at all on the bottom." All I can say is USE THIS PAINT.

                                  I put it on heavy, maybe four coats which is 2 gallons on my 30 foot sail boat. It holds up for atleast 2 years in the hot waters of Baha. So easy to prep for recoating, just a light sanding after washing.

                                      Going on 2 1/2 years now. Had good luck with hard paints before which also last about the same time, it was the build up of hard paints that made me switch. I live in Fla. and the boat, a power cat stays in the water. Last year with a 1 1/2 year on the paint and after the boat sat idle for 4 months I went for a long cruise. For the first 1/2 hour the boat would not even plane do to the heavy growth of weed and moss on the bottom . After about 1/2 hour it finally started getting on a plane and just after daylight, 2 hours later, I finally jumped in the water to clean the bottom, but to my suprise bottom was completly clean. All had wash off.
