rmeador is on a distinguished road
I'm having my bottom stripped and redone a month or so from now. I had never considered going with a non-biocide paint, but it makes sense that now would be the time to do it. I like the sound of this Intersleek 900 stuff. This is the second time today I've come across it being mentioned. The other place was on the Boston Liveaboards mailing list, where someone said it ends up being cheaper in the long run because it lasts 10 years. Does it really last 10 years? How much do you think it would cost to do the bottom of my 37' Gulfstar? Currently, the yard was suggesting I use a West Marine multi-season ablative.
