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

Modified epoxy or "hard" anti fouling paints will be ruined by prolonged periods out of the water. And by "prolonged", I mean a few weeks, if that. If you are going to dry sail or trailer your boat, you are limited to an ablative paint.
