The boat has been in the water for over 18 months now and still looks great with no hard growth(Carrabelle, FL). After the first year, I found that I need to wipe off the slime using a microfiber glove. I have wiped it down a few times now, and I am hoping to get another 12-18 months at least before another application of SR-60.

Here is the link to the Dollar General microfiber glove I use:

Glad that it's working for you. This is the same recipe I plan to follow. I bit scary mixing products from different manufactures, but this seems to be the best logical approach. Thanks for the tip on the mitt. Seems a good way to wipe down with out taking off too much paint while you're doing it.
