Re: Is it to early in my refit to apply VC17
You plan on launching your boat in January of 2014? In Minnesota? Hmmm.
Some bottom paints, notably Ablative paints, do lose some of their effectiveness if used too far in advance to launching. I'm not sure about VC 17 which I believe is a hard paint rather than an ablative but I do know that VC 17 is expensive.
That said, what makes you think that putting a coat of bottom paint on it will pacify your new neighbors? I'd bet that they will love it when you put a tarp tent over the boat for the winter. Is there some way you can move your trailer so it is less visible to the new folks on the block?
