Re: What do you add (to improve) your bottom paint?

I add elbow grease.

You would think that someone would come up with a film thin layer of copper you could just epoxy on.
Seriously, multiple layers over the years of 60% copper based paint that sheds off. Why not just step back 200 years and do a copper platted bottom - or better yet copper/nickle?

Sort of like a gold leaf application (with copper), set in epoxy?

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
