What about this idea? Suppose I put the CSC on now, in green, stay in the water for about two months, pull out for winter and then in the spring put on a second coat of CSC in blue or red or any other color than green? The first coat in green would be the mark of when to stop sanding or removing bottom paint in future years.
Maybe I should just move out of Massachusetts and get a place in Virginia Beach where you can stay in the water all year! In the fall of 2010 I can redo the bottom and know if CSC is the right paint for my boat and the water conditions she operates in
