Product Overview

Metal-free Smart Solution antifouling paint helps to keep our boating waters clean.

Engineered to be the most effective, environmentally-friendly antifouling paint available, metal-free Smart Solution Antifouling Paint helps to keep our boating waters clean. Unlike traditional copper-based antifouling paints, Smart Solution delivers equivalent performance using metal-free Econea—which does not accumulate in the environment. 

As an ablative paint, Smart Solution wears away with use, which reduces paint build-up along with the need for sanding when the time comes to repaint. Controlled wearing is complemented by the coating’s reaction to saltwater, which creates a slick film that encapsulates the hull, providing enhanced speed and premium performance against growth. Not for sale in States where prohibited by law.

Get the right amount of paint:

The following recommendations are for two coats of paint. All values are approximate.

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.
