Tim R.. there are still herds of deer grazing the shoulders of 80. I suspect that the deer proof grass has long been overcome by more edible grass anyway. It's why we (PA) have fur lined highways.
Back on topic, I'd sure love to hear a decent eval on low copper content bottom paints (eco friendly if you will). Just had a convo with our one and only other sailor here at work and he was telling me stories of back in the 70s when you'd put the boat in the water, and see a trail of death (clear water) behind the boat in it's wake (killing off algae/crud as you sailed)... I hope that was an exaggeration, but he's a Chem-E so maybe not so much. I'd like to think we are further along than that now, but my very recent experience with the blue dust that was formerly my ablative bottom paint on my 30yo trailerable, I'd say maybe not.
