Like I said, I'm not here to debate - I'm here to learn and share. Almost all of what you say makes good sense - wish I had your advice before ordering the Bottomkote (classic). Also, I do appreciate your detailed response. I have been sailing for 45 years but I have only been working on boat bottoms for 5 months. Looks like I'll be looking for something to do with an unopened gallon of Bottomkote. Maybe I can talk a local merchant into taking it of my hands in exchange for a can of red Micron Extra (and the difference in price). In my defense, I DID do an enormous amount of reading - here and elsewhere and I'm normally very skeptical of what I read in forums. I'm a little surprised at Chef's post above since I was unaware that any ablative was made in black - I know Micron Extra isn't.
Brak - please forgive me for the diversion away from your topic.
Thanks again to all.
