Well thanks for the input everyone, this has been a far more interesting discussion than I anticipated when I started the thread

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I have Trinidad on my boat (in Southern CA; King Harbor/Redondo Beach). It's been almost exactly four years, but it's just about due. I'll probably haul it and repaint the bottom this Fall.

Yes, blue paint; it becomes lighter blue over time. When first painted on it's nearly as dark as the boot stripe.

Hadn't seen the additional pix until now. Is your paint blue?

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

So knowing that it's 5.5 years old; knowing that the bottom paint is getting difficult to scrub per what the diver is saying, and the boat already in the slings with an agreement that the yard that they will sand and paint the hull, I'm supposed to say 'oops, put me back in the water' instead? In addition I had already bought new depth/speed instruments, dripless shaft seal, drivesaver, and feathering prop. Can't install them without going on the hard...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I don't maintain that you aren't telling what you believe to be the truth, I'm simply saying that what you are claiming is outside my personal experience. The pic you posted is of a boat that essentially doesn't even need to be cleaned. A 5+ year old bottom in the central Bay that hasn't been touched in three months that is virtually spotless? Again, completely outside my experience.

I'll ask again- if the paint is working that well, why repaint?

As I said before; the prop and shaft was painted with Ultra also. There were barnacles where it had washed away. The waterline on the port side is clean because the boat does not sit perfectly level when in the slip. I was having trouble with hard growth on the starboard boot stripe because it was submerged. I fixed that problem by painting the lower stripe with Pettit Vivid to match the hull. Since the diver said it was becoming difficult; and knowing how long it had been I assumed it would be worse than it was. But going on the hard is not really optional once it's out of the water.

Nope; that was before pressure washing. I would not post these pictures or make a false claim about something like this if it were not true. Some people get 3 years and then haul regardless of bottom condition. Since the diver had not said it needed a haulout I let it wait until he suggested it was time. Here are a couple more pictures.

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

That picture was taken before pressure washing. It was about 3 months after the bottom was cleaned. There is a bit of hard growth on the lower edge of the keel but that's why the diver said it was getting close to being time for a haulout. After it was washed it was pretty much clean aside from the little bit of hard growth at the lower edge of the keel. As I said before; I'm not really concerned about how much slime growth there is on it; most all bottom paints will allow slime growth despite the additives that claim to prevent it.

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

Maybe you have a different definition of what "lasting" means regarding anti fouling paint. So there's still paint on the hull. Doesn't mean there's biocide left in the paint. And if there isn't biocide left in the paint, the paint isn't going to do its job. Anti fouling paint that has depleted its biocide hasn't "lasted", regardless of what the bottom looks like after a nice pressure washing.
