I have applied Sea Hawk "hard" ablative this time. The soft ablative was only lasting one year - we sail about 4000 miles / year. The hard ablative is made for boats that travel faster than most sailboats. It is a harder finish but is still an ablative paint. So far the paint is preforming well. Unfortunately, next time I will have to change from Islander 44 to their new Biocop as the ban on tin-based paints is spreading worldwide.
