Specs

Product Overview

Brighten your boat with multi-season antifouling protection that lasts!

Neither an ablative, nor a hard-epoxy paint, Vivid® is a bright-colored, hybrid that combines the qualities of both to provide multi-season protection against marine growth. Unlike hard epoxy paints, hulls protected with Vivid can be hauled and re-launched without loss of effectiveness.

 Attractive colors and abrasion resistance make Vivid a great choice for trailered boats whose owners want to look sharp while not having to worry about their trailer bunks rubbing the paint off. Sailboat racers appreciate the fact that Vivid can be burnished ultra smooth.

When used with the recommended priming system, Vivid can safely be applied to aluminum hulls and outdrives without fear of galvanic corrosion. Along with Cuprous thiocyanate as the primary biocide, Vivid also contains Zinc pyrithione to prevent slime.

We offer Vivid in six basic bright colors: Red, Blue, Black, Green, Yellow and White. Basic colors can be mixed to create a custom color of your choice. For examples, see the Vivid Color Chart.

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.
