One obvious problem would be that the boat's waterline will have to be 5.5 ft above water level, and the deck about 8ft, in order to not have any keel in the water.

Re: Achtung MdR Boaters!

Biggest issue now with non copper paints is.the cost, the grant programs going on in SD is one where they offset the cost for the initial strip and paint but you're still out of pocket at about double. What they don't tell ya is, the cost of future bottom painting

I was quoted 1400.00 for a haul,paint and splash with standard paint, with non copper and port subsities it was 2100.00 future bottom paint with non copper would be 5500.00.

They really need to work on the cost of the product, do that and the issue is.solved

Re: Achtung MdR Boaters!

Don't expect the cost of non-copper or non-toxic paints to come down anytime soon. The paint manufacturers are not interested in making it easy for you to switch away from copper. Quite the opposite in fact. They love it when boaters stand up and scream about the cost of non-copper alternatives. They are heavily vested in continuing to sell copper and will do whatever they can to impede a changeover.
