Here is my question. Has anyone used the Woolsey HydroCoat? I am planning to switch from Micron Product to HydroCoat product and am intertested in personal experiences with the product. Obviously the manufacturer claims it is as good or better. Anxiusly waiting some feedback..launch time is only 80 days away.

I wish to change for two reasons:
-CSC is getting too expensive.
-Looking for a harder ''abltive'' for
some additional performance.

I''ve used Hydrocoat for 4 seasons. It is quite soft. After the initial three coats I went two seasons, Touch painted some thin spots the third season, and put one additional coat on the fourth season. The price can''t be beat and it''s nice not having to sand an old coat of bottom paint off before you recoat.

P.S. Soap and Water clean up is especially nice. And if there is damage to the bottom, its easy to remove paint from the surrounding area , fix the damage then easy to touch up the repaired area. Also, every fall when we haul the boat out, the bottom is spotless.
