Re: Micron CSC vs Micron Extra --- Mid-Chesapeake

I've had good luck with the Bluewater ablative product line too. I can get at least 2 years and sometime even 3 years between haul outs with the boat having been located in the Annapolis area. Prior to using the Bluewater I've used numerous other brands of ablatives over the life of the boat(28 years) and have quite a build up of paint over those years even with frequent use and also a good scrubbing whenever hauled out. Now the boat is getting a new barrier coat(it had a coal tar barrier coat put on back when the boat was new) and I'm considering useing the Micron Extra since I'm using the Interlux product line on the barrier coats. Need to consider some of the other ablatives from Interlux however if there remains a significant price differance between Interlux and Bluewater....I'll go back with the bluewater since hot coating can be achieved with either regardless of brand.
