Eco Clad bottom paint

Has anyone had experience with Eco Clad bottom paint? Is it effective? How long does it last? I'm in the Tampa Bay area and keep the boat in the water year-round. Have been using Trinidad and am happy with it, but always interested in hearing about new products.

Re: Eco Clad bottom paint

It is unlikely that you will find any currently available anti fouling product that will perform better than Pettit Trinidad. Diving Otter may be able to get some first-hand info for you on Eco Clad, but he works in New Jersey and his customer's results with it may be very different than what you can expect from the same product in Florida.

Eco friendly anything will be less effective than the old tried and true not so friendly products. Oh and you will pay more for it and it will be a lot more work on your part.
