If not bottom paint, what?
I am nearly finished with the rebuilding of my trailered Ensenada 20. I have no NEED to paint the bottom, except that I did some cosmetic repairs on the stem and below the waterline which now show as that lovely shade of West System 407 brown. I want to keep the bottom white (there are no white bottom paints that I have been able to find). I have some left over Snow White Awlgrip from the topsides. This boat will be used (for the next year at least)only as a daysailor (I will be rebuilding the interior next winter). Will Awlgrip stand up to this kind of use below the waterline, or should I consider some other paint (My attitude about the Awlgrip is that I have plenty and it is paid for). Any ideas and feedback are welcome.
