Re: Bottom Painting and color question
This is me out of the water. If you can somehow transpose the bottom color per say to your boat, if it helps, go for it. I've used WM's PCA Gold. Petit vivid has a few really bright colors. That is a harder ablative that you can burnish. But will not ablate as fast either. The pcp for my anyhow, is softer, may not last as long per say, but with my typical speeds in the 4-6 knot range it will ablate faster. I had Micron on it before, it held the grunge a bit longer once moving.
As far as paint types and brands, all work, all are a crap shoot per say too, in that what works for me along with how I sail vs you can be opposite sides of the spectrum.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
