Yup, D030 is right. There's a packet of copper powered that's added to each quart of VC-17 before painting. After she's been in the water for a while, it the paint will darken to a deep brown/gray. VC is great stuff because it's so thin, smooth and easy to apply. However, I think it's only protection comes from the copper and "Biolux" for slime prevention, so Interlux recommends other paints if you're not in freshwater or low-fouling seawater.
