Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

The October 2013 edition of PRACTICAL SAILOR has a very good comparison of all sorts of bottom paints. Worth getting to read.

After the first two year experiment I have gone to using enough paint for one season as it seems to perform better
What sting do you experience if you don't pressure wash? I hate seeing all that expensive paint go down the drain...

Maybe he meant "stink."

Maybe he did. Also taking a toll on the pint doesn't sound right either. Cruelty to beer will not be tolerated!

Awaiting clarification....

Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

Well

Actually during the season there are times you can walk across the jellyfish during which the sting does come into play without full gear

And as fast has Mentioned the least I wear is a 1/2 suit and full hood as you don't want are critters in your ears

A saltwater wash-down hose is mandatory to have right by the stern ladder to minimize what you bring back on board

And then there is fact that end of season STINK without really washing the hull

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

So if it's an ablative pain it can be out of the water but not hard paints?

Generally speaking- that is correct.

Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

Ok, I'll have to find out what kind it is, is there anyway to tell from a photo? The thing is, it's a six hour drive away. I've scheduled the launch for next week. If I need to paint, now is a good time as it is already hauled out. But! I would have to move it to the work yard.. So basically, I would have to pay for a one way haul which is about 75% of a round trip to get to the work yard. I need to schedule this now, but I won't know until I get up there what kind of bottom paint it is. Unless I can identify from picture.

I believe that the paint looks discoloured is because they didn't pressure wash upon haul out and it has a small dried layer of slime.

Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

What kind of crappy yard doesn't pressure wash the hull when the boat is hauled?

Re: Ablative vs. Hard Paints....

It was more likely a cheap owner who knew he would be selling the boat and didn't want to spend the extra $150 that power washing would cost around here.
