How to ID bottom paint
Is there a way to tell hard from soft (i.e. ablative) bottom paint when it's on the boat?
I have to touch up a few spots--the paint looks sound otherwise, but I read that you can paint new hard over old hard, but not over old soft.
Is there any sort of hardness test to tell which is which?
