I'm doing a full bottom strip with new barrier and paint this winter. I was just pointed to this product to consider. It's an environmentally friendly paint that Practical Sailor says is excellent. I'm not a huge tree hugger, but would do my part if the stuff works. It is more expensive, but most of the job is labor anyway.
One thing I was given to consider is the trend toward banning some of the heavy metals in today's paints. He wasn't suggesting that would happen overnight, but if it did, I would not find myself having to strip again.
Any knowledge of the effectiveness of this paint?
Any thoughts on the likelihood of the metals ban down the road in New England?
