I'll chime in that I've been satisfied with Pettit Hydrocoat after using it on my previous boat and current one on the Chesapeake.

A slight coat of slime is all I've ever had to deal with leaving the boat in the water 2 seasons at a time, hauling out every other year.

I've used Micron the last two paint jobs, as that is what came with the boat for the PO in his 20 yrs of owning the boat. Worked overall pretty well in Puget sound. I just painted after 3 yrs with WM's equal with slime.

Do not know how it will work, but was cheap, and am hoping to haul in the next 6-18 months and do a complete bottom remove and redo with hard paint. With that, I will swag my Jeanneau 30 is about the same sq footage and disp as your C&C, fin keel 6500 lbs disp, 25.5 waterline, I used ~.8 gal with two full coats, 4 on the waterline down a foot, leading and tailing edges of fin and rudder. I think I have a pic out of the water I can post if you want a view of my boat to see how close it is to yours. I would start with one gal, assuming the supply place is close by. You may only need 1-1.25 gals, a qt on the tail end is way cheaper than having .75 gals left over!

Shaun....were you implying J was not a professional???????

We are switching from Micron Extra to the UltimaSR40 on Chefs recommendation ( we have had good luck however with the micron Extra)

Chef.... should I be going with the SR60 instead?

I've been using Pettit Hydrocoat, which is water-based) for at least 3 years with good results here in Connecticut. It was applied over CSC, which I had previously used for over 10 years.

Every spring I simple buff the bottom (which the boatyard had power washed in the fall) using plain water and a scouring pad (the kind that has a handle) and roll on a single, thin coat.

Another bit of advice: If you have a substantial build-up of a solvent-based ablative paint,you might simply wipe your bottom down with acetone or paint thinner and a rag to refresh the surface. You might touch up the water line, but you can avoid applying a whole new coat.

Anybody else know if Micron CSC has been discontinued for certain? It's been our paint of choice for the last 20 years.

Another Experience

My boat is in Salem, MA. It goes in end of April and gets hauled mid-November. It is used every week 1-3X.

The previous owner used Interlux Micron 33 and when I bought the boat, the bottom was so smooth, I asked him what he used. When I went to repaint, I couldn't find the Micron 33, so went to Micron 66. The was a great paint, but it was a lot of money. Since I haul my boat yearly, I decided last year to try West Marine's Version with anti-slime and am very happy with the results.

The WM version may result in a tad more slime, but but not enough to make a difference. It also may wear a little worse. I seem to have less residual paint than the Micron 66 so, for extended seasons or heavy use, it may mean a shorter duration bewteen repaints. For a 6 to 9 month season, I don't think it makes a differnce, The bottom power washed of well when she was pulled.

Since the WM stuff is 50% of the price of the Interlux Micron 66 and they are are almost equivalent in performance, the WM paint is recommended.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
