Fastbttn,,

The indivigual in the thread you posted is our diver actually.. very knowledgable. He is right about using ablative paints on the Chessie. The slime away properties are superior we have found on a consistant basis. This is the hull cleaning they may outlaw as I posted before. We may have to get shorthauled and powered washed instead of having the diver. Hard paints such as Petit Trinidadad dont do as well ehere.

I understand that but let's be clear- hull cleaning is not being outlawed. That's like saying you can't drive your car anymore because going over 65 mph is illegal.

Puget Sound in WA is sorta outlawed in the hull cleaning part. Mostly for ablatives. Hard paints one can have a diver clean the hull, ablative no. My marina will not let you dive and clean ANY bottom, outside the break water, no biggie!

But there does seem to be a "get rid of the copper paints" locally too. Not sure if this is good or bad.....

But this could spread........

Discharge permits are being rescinded by the dozens, perhaps hundreds, in New England. There are marinas that are voluntarily making changes, such as prohibiting hull diving or requiring e-green type paints that are getting an extension before having to put in pressure washing containment units. It's like legislating from the bench. The laws themselves haven't necessarily changed much . Its all just a game, but the direction is clear.

Friendly reminder. There are a number of posts here that discussed the use of oxytetracycline as a marine antifoulant paint additive. Be advised that in 2005 such used were cancelled by the USEPA. To add the compound, veterinary drug sourced or what have you, to marine antifoulant paint could be interpreted as a violation of FIFRA. Procede with due dilligence.

I have no interest in using the stuff, but I do not understand what "cancelled" means. One would think they would say prohibited if you were not allowed to add it yourself. Could be jargon I'm unfamiliar with.
