Re: Don Casey: Paint Waterline Stripe with Bottom Paint

I always paint the antifouling up a couple of inches above the static water line. I use ablative paint so it cleans off easily. The boot stripe is not paint, it is decal. I have the remnants of the roll in case it gets damaged.

This photo is a bit exagerated because of waves and a bit of aft trim at the time of the shot.



(My son named the seal "Snokel". He hung around all weekend, and was particularly impressed with my paint job as he spend a lot of time admiring his reflection in it!)

I'm replacing only the red stripe at the waterline with red bottom paint.
That sound like a fine idea. Are you using ablative paint? or hard paint?
