Re: How much bottom paint?

I always start with the waterline, then the rudder. Then the rest of the bottom. Then, when it's dry another at the waterline and then another on the rudder. Next day - same thing - so you end up with 4 coats on the waterline and rudder, two on the rest of the bottom. I also put quite a few coats of a gray spray on the prop - I forget what it's called - something like Barnacle Buster - it dries in just a few minutes, so you can pile on a bunch of coats. Has worked well for us. Like the Micron Extra - it's pricey but worth it.
