Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I reliably get three years with Petit Trinidad. Four is pushing and five years … Well let’s just say Matt is looking for a larger check. We went with red this last time because blue has been so overdone and red just looks too damn good.

Both hard paints and ablatives need to be cleaned regularly, in regions where fouling is an issue. Yes, ablative paints are subject to some paint loss during in-water cleaning activities, but by using Best Management Practices, your diver will not remove an undue amount of paint and it will last as long as it should, presuming you applied it following the manufacture's recommendations.

I think when people refer to a coat and a half, the half is an extra coat applied to leading edges of the keel and other high-wear spots. So most of the hull gets one coat, high-wear areas 2.

We are referring to hard bottom paints, non ablative, which is what I have.

Matt, don't you remember your note saying get some new paint or I'm going to have to charge you extra? You were aboslutely right of course and when we hauled last December, it was a little embarrasing. That was one of our reasons on switching colors so we will be able to tell when the paint is starting to get a little thin.

Yes I do but maybe I'm not following you. I'd would much rather clean paint in good condition at the usual rate than old, difficult-to-clean, biocide-depleted paint at a higher price. I think any hull cleaner would tell you the same.

I am unaware of any anti fouling paint manufacturer that recommends fewer than two full coats for any of their products, regardless of type.

Yes, I put on two coats onto leading edges, bottom of the keel and at the water line, then roll on two further full coats over everything. As a measure, I use 10 litres of paint on a 44ft boat with a bottom like this:



This treatment normally lasts an easy 24 months but I don't clean between. This last round went for 30 months and I had just a light dusting of tiny barnacles at the waterline and a fine film of slime that washed of easily with a pressure washer.

BTW, I don't "have a diver", I "am the diver".

If that's the extent of your fouling after two and half years, you don't need a diver.
