Re: Bottom Paint Recommendation Needed

My choice would be Interlux VC 17m. It can be drysailed and gives reasonable protection.

I actually used it some years ago on a trailer sailor and it did the business.

Originally I told him to have the little Belize guys wax it before each visit- but somebody down there told him he needs paint. He believes it and the cost of having it painted is not an issue. So I was just looking for opinions as to the best paint for the situation.

Trailered boats need ablative paint. Hard paints cannot withstand prolonged exposure to air. Start there.
