thanks tommays, i don't know if that technique will work for me. that boat i'm looking to paint is a 61 year old schooner I'm currently working on. Her keel is 80' long and she has a draft of 8', so wiping her down isn't easy. She's in Newport so our marine growth isn't that bad. Whatever grows in the summer dies in the winter when it gets cold. The boat stays in the water year round, as it's better for an old wooden betty such as herself.

I'm looking for a relatively cheap paint that will work for her until she gets hauled again in 2011. The CPP seemed to be an economical ablative, but I'm worried about it making it two season. I wrote Pettit an email with some questions. We'll see if we get any answers.
