Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?
Both hard paints and ablatives need to be cleaned regularly, in regions where fouling is an issue. Yes, ablative paints are subject to some paint loss during in-water cleaning activities, but by using Best Management Practices, your diver will not remove an undue amount of paint and it will last as long as it should, presuming you applied it following the manufacture's recommendations.
