Product Overview

Buff your boat’s bottom to an ultra-smooth racing surface.

Recommended for use in freshwater on racing hulls, sailboats, runabouts or cruisers, Petit Old Salem Hard Racing Copper Bronze is a good choice for creation of a hard, smooth racing surface. Although Petit Old Salem Hard Racing Copper Bronze is not an antifouling paint, it does contain copper flake pigment, which accounts for its characteristic bronze hue.
