Re: Bottompaint.us : A scam? Or just inept?
I suppose if TBT is out, tin foil sheeting would still be legal? (sigh)
Only thing I'm sure of, is that Interlux says Micron66 is for SALT water, not brackish, not fresh. Ru, were you quoting PS? Did they say what kind of water mix they were in?
I stopped using hard paint when I ran out of JATO bottles and had to radically reduce hull speed. (G)
Found the free tease extract from PS online:
" The best ablative paints at six months included Copper Shield SCX 45 by Blue Water, EP-21 by Epaint, and Hydrocoat and Vivid Free by Pettit. The top long-term bottom paints—those appropriate for multi-season antifouling protection—included Interlux Micron 66, Pettit Trinidad SR, and Interlux Epoxycop."
IOW, Blue Water had a product that worked great, for one season. Ah, it gets deeper...
