Jamestown Dist. Select Water Based Ablative Paint

Has anyone out there tried the Jamestown Ablative Bottom paint. This is a water based paint. My boat is in the water in Florida, and before I try something new I really want to know if it will hold up in tropical conditions. Bottom painting is way too much work and expense to have to do it over again.

What- you think you can paint once and be done with it? Expect 2-3 years out of any anti fouling paint (at the most) and then you will need to paint again. That's just the reality of the situation.

Thank you so much for splaining " The reality of bottom paint" for me. You are just a wealth of information. Maybe if we are lucky your bottom will peel and blister!

Gee, did I misunderstand your initial post? Maybe if you had the ability to properly express yourself, that wouldn't have happened.

Re: Jamestown Dist. Select Water Based Ablative Paint

I think what Fstbttms was referring to you saying that it cost too much to do over, algee, when in reality bottom paint always has to be done over--it's just a matter of how often. So what do you mean by holding up?

Re: Jamestown Dist. Select Water Based Ablative Paint

I guess my question was just to complicated for this forum. I'll try asking the question somewhere else.

Jamestown Dist. Select Water Based Ablative Paint

I used the petit brand water based this year for the first time. It's working as well as anything else I've used. Not much growth at all. Seems to be holdin up, but we'll see at the end of the year. I'm in new England, but the water has been very warm this season.

Re: Jamestown Dist. Select Water Based Ablative Paint

Algee - Regardless of the forum you use, if you ask a question that is open to interpretation you will likely get the types of answers you received here. ARF145 is right - what is your definition of "holding up"? To you it may mean not having to paint your bottom ever again. To someone else it means there is no growth this season but will still have to paint the bottom again next season. Your question isn't complicated - it is just too ambiguous to expect you will get a definitive answer. People hear where just trying to clarify what you meant by "holding up" and if you post the same question on a different forum you are probably going to get similar replies.

Read the MSDS for Cuprous oxide

As Trinidad SR is 70% + and this brand X paint is 15 something % and Micron Extra is in the middle with 60%
