FL bottom paint help

Harder paints generally have a shorter useful life than the Abblative paints which can be built up to a sufficient thickness to go 2 years or so. The Keys is hard duty as the warm water promotes rapid growth and so more frequent cleanings. The harder paints are also more prone to ''paint sickness'' making them harder to maintain over the long haul.
