Their website says it is a Hard paint for use in fresh and saltwater. Thanks for the tip.
THis is from the Rustoleum site:
Boat Bottom Antifouling Paint
Protective coating for use below the waterline.
Hard antifouling coating that slowly releases copper, preventing the build-up of barnacles, algae and other marine growth. Hard antifoulings are best for powerboats, racing sailboats, or boats that are regularly hauled and cleaned. The biocide will oxidize when hauled and stored for the season, but can be sanded to regain antifouling protection.
For mild to moderate fouling conditions in both fresh and saltwater
Formulated for use on both trailered boats and boats that remain in the water all season or all year long
45% cuprous oxide (copper)
Not for use on aluminum surfaces as the copper in the coating will react with the aluminum
Newly painted boats should be launched within 60 days of painting for best antifouling performance. If not launched within 60 days, the surface must be scuff-sanded.
Bare Fiberglass - priming is not necessary
Bare Wood - apply a base coat of Rust-Oleum Boat Bottom Antifouling thinned with 10% mineral spirits, and use full-strength antifouling paint for subsequent coats.
Previously painted surfaces – can be applied directly over most aged hard antifouling coatings.
Bare Metal (excluding aluminum) - apply a base coat of an epoxy primer
Boat Type Paint Needed*
14' Rowboat 1 qt.
14' Outboard 1 qt.
18' Runabout 3 qts.
20' Sailboat 3 qts.
24' Runabout 3 qts.
24' Utility 3 qts.
25' Cruiser 3 qts.
* Based upon 2 coats applied over existing finish. Bare wood will require approximately twice as much paint. Unpainted fiberglass and metal will require about 1 1/2 times as much. Coverage will vary with condition of surface and method of application.
