Hard Vinyl antifouling paint for racing, sailing and performance power boats

 

For racing sailboats and powerboats, this thin-film antifouling paint is formulated to reduce friction and drag. When applied, VC Offshore immediately produces a hard, super-smooth racing finish. VC Offshore combines Biolux technology and metallic copper to provide complete protection in freshwater and in low-fouling saltwater. Great for use on inflatables.

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.
