Product Overview

Multi-season, water-based antifouling paint for hard- or soft-bottom inflatables.

Pettit's Antifouling Paint for Inflatable Boats is a water-based antifouling bottom coating designed to prevent the growth of all types of saltwater and freshwater fouling. Unlike solvent-based paints, the water-based formula of this paint makes it more pleasant to apply and better for the environment. Along with cuprous oxide to prevent marine fouling, the formula also contains the slicking agent PTFE, which reduces drag for maximum speed and fuel efficiency.

Get the right amount of paint:

To determine bottom paint quantity by estimating 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.
