Specs

Product Overview

High copper content provides long-term protection against severe bottom fouling.
Ultra-Kote hard antifouling paint is heavily loaded with cuprous oxide for maximum performance in severe fouling conditions. The modified epoxy formula results in a durable finish with excellent color stability. This durable finish stands up to abrasion and when needed, periodic scrubbing by a diver. Ultra-Kote is also low in VOCs, which minimizes its impact on the environment; and it dries quickly so you can paint and launch on the same day. Ultra-Kote is a great choice for fiberglass, steel, and wood boats in brackish or salt water. We offer Ultra-Kote in Red, Blue, Green and Black.

Get the right amount of paint:

Boat Type Bottom Paint
10' Dinghy 1 qt.
14' Outboard 1-2 qt.
18' Runabout 2 qt.
20' Sailboat 3 qt.
24' Runabout 3-4 qt.
30' Sailboat 1.5 gal.
32' Cruiser 1.5-2 gal.
36' Auxiliary 2 gal.
40' Cruiser 2.5 gal.
45' Sailboat 3-3.5 gal
50' Sportfisher 4+ gal.
 
Another way to determine bottom paint quantity is to estimate the approximate surface area of the hull below the waterline, using the following formula:
 
Length x Beam x .75 = Approximate underwater surface area in square feet.
 
Each paint has a “theoretical coverage” area, but most paints require at least two coats, so you can expect actual coverage to be no greater than half of the theoretical value.
