re: Advice on Best Antifoul Paint that Holds Up -- In & Out of Salt Water

.. I should know better..... but..... I've never actually found a paint that was effective against chickens, pheasants, turkeys and the like.... although any paint used underwater will appear to work better

OK.. got that out of the way, sorry.. you mean antifouling paint.

This is often a regional decision, depending on what's available (and legal) in your area. I think the ablatives like Micron CSC and similar paints should do well in that situation.

.. and I'll fix the title for you!
