Cayenne Pepper Bottom Paint

Here the other day while I was at the dry dock, their was an old salt doing a bottom job on his boat. I noticed their was a large container of cayenne pepper next to his paint can, so I had to ask??? He was adding it to his bottom paint. Huuuuu! Is their anyone out their that has herd of this before? Cayenne pepper is to hot for me, kind of makes since, or what?

This idea has been tossed around quite a bit, and I seriously doubt it works for any significant duration. While it might work a bit initially, if there was any real effective increase in protection, given the low-cost of the ingredients...don't you think someone would be exploiting it commercially???

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

One thing you'll learn after being around boats for awhile is that "old salts" don't always know their ass from a hole in the ground and that old wive's tales die a slow death.

OK, actually I guess that's two things you'll learn after being around boats for awhile.

Here a recent thread on the subject from the Sailing Anarchy board:

Cayenne pepper is water soluble, I doubt if it is suitable for bottom paint. It is, however, great for spicing up a Bloody Mary.

If you think cayenne pepper works well, try mixing in some habanero chile LOL

Billy Bob here! Paypal? what in the livin' H is that? Is that like the $20 i got from uncle Ray buck to hold me over till pay day? he was a pal and I got to pay him back. Long time between pay days around here. to bad Ray!

I Don't take no time payment either! paint usually falls off before the next payment is due and people don't pay. Learned me some good business stuff!

LOL? Hey this really works! I use ground up dried habaneros mixed with cayenne on half of my bottom and the other side I use a half and half mixture of menthol and eucalyptus. I got this idea from old Burger King commercials...hot side hot, cool side cool. I've never had any crustacean infestation on either side....I just wish I had a boat to see if I get the same results!

Just my two cents worth, A friend of mine that sails in corpus Christi, TX swear by it. He panited his 25 footer 4 years ago with cayene peper mixed on the panit and had very little growth when he pulled it out last sume to repaint. I saw the bottom two weeks after he pulled it and it looked good. But he has been known to exagerate every know and then.
