Bottom paint
Well, it''s been a while since I was able to get back as I had the boat in the yard painting the bottom. I''ve learned alot about bottom paint. If you can, buy your co-pollymer paint at home depot, any color you want. go to a pottery supply store and get 10 pounds of copper oxide. get an empty paint can and start mixing. the copper oxide will change the color so keep it in mind. a $2.00 gallon of paint thinner to thin the paint a bit and clean up and you will have bottom paint to rival the best on the market.If you want get a pound of dry cayanne pepper and add that to the paint too.
