Dana Point, Same Sheriff on Harbor Patrol, just 14 nm south.
Every time I've painted over the last 12 years I've thought it's the last time I'll have a high copper paint. Just a quick reading of the studies make me think the outcome at some point will be "non-biocide" paint. At that point it will be a win-win for all, starving divers can feed their families, boaters have to clean often, but at least they CAN clean.
After suffering through some sort of "moratorium" it won't hurt so much.
