While these environmentally friendly paints are more expensive, I find that most of a paint job is labor anyway. The cost of the product doesn't seem that prohibitive if you are trying to do your part or expect you will be required to at some point (marina or state regs).

The big variable is trying to change from old heavy metal paint to these. They all seem to require a full strip and that adds up. The time to think about it is when you plan to strip your bottom anyway.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
