Question Bottom Paint????

Is there any specific formula for adding cayanne pepper to bottom paint? I have done a search and have read one cup to a pound per gallon of paint. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

All I find is "season to taste".

Cayanne pepper?? I've never heard of this one. What purpose does is this supposed to serve?

People like to experiment with ideas. I have had a few of my own. I really not know a recipe, but, this may be one of those things that not work. You may be able to contact someone like "Interlux" and ask;
yachtpaint.com - the official site of International and Interlux paints (I guess this a good link to start).
If, it worked I assume Paint companies would use the idea. My reasoning is we are seeing more and more EPA intervention over bottom paints. Even the copper based paints are now under the scope. I can understand as anyone with a saltwater aquarium knows, you do not drop copper pennies into the tank.
You can try what you wish and learn first hand, nothing wrong with experimenting. I know some people with wood boats in southern water use a Latex Exterior house paint on the bottom of their boats. Very long story and I have been surprised they not get those worm/parasite things in the wood. But, anyway, that what they do every few years.
Do a Yahoo search; boat paints cayenne pepper
I found this;
www.bwi.org/images/basics.pdf It a pdf file download. If you click; view as html you get this link; (I hope it work or click from your search)
The link not work so I remove, in the search you can find. But, the pdf is the same.

Capsasin is supposed to prevent the barnacle from "sitting down". I don't know that once bound in a paint it still has any active properties (unless something takes a bite of the paint to free it).

with friends like this, who needs enemas?

Cayenne pepper on YOUR bottom would make you damn uncomfortable --- Why would you do it to your boat?

The most recent Practical Sailor just did a test on bottom paints, and they tested cayenne pepper. They concluded that it made no difference.
