OK I am going to go your route Shaun. I have had good results with the micron extra and have gotten 2 seasons from it, but the slogh off of the ablative at lower speeds makes sense to me.
Old Bay has a really great deal for hauling, powerwashing and painting. Gonna use the Petit SR40 for the next two year stint.

|4arch||Last spring I applied WM PCA Gold which is the WM version of the Petit with Irgarol. Late summer/early fall there was significant sliming, at least around the water line (but that happened to a lot of boats in my marina, regardless of paint used). The boat's been in the water all winter and it appears most of the slime near the water line has abladed away simply from movement of water around the boat in the slip. The water's clear enough now that I can see a barnacle or two have grown on the bottom. Some small splotches of the paint have also come off (I put blue over black so it's easy to see), especially near the bow. I don't know whether the blue simply abladed away that quickly or I had an adhesion problem. I plan to haul the boat and touch up the PCA Gold in the spring and reassess next year.|

We switched to the Pettit SR40 last season as well and are very pleased with the results, especially in the slime reduction department. Much better than the Micron.
I believe I've read somewhere that the West Marine CCP is the Pettit without the Dual Biocides....

The reason the Pettit SR40 probably works better than the Interlux Micron CRC is the Micron requires a fairly high speed to start ablating at... and isn't as useful on sailboats as slow as yours.
Seriously, the Pettit ablatives start to ablate at speeds as low as 4 knots or so, while the Interlux ablatives tend to start up around 7+ knots or so.

How did the WM CPP Ablative work out. can you get two seasons?
Shawn how abt the Petit CR40? Is that the Trinidad? was it hard coat or ablative?

Everyone here at the club uses Patrick McMahon. Scary looking dude but does the job well.. firstname.lastname@example.org. He just deslimed our boat. No barnacles or problems after staying in over the winter. used the same Micron EX you did as Ken did ours last year. Did red over blue and the red is still showing. We will get ours deslimed again before our trip to the Vinyard in early July.
I have no business affilation or interest with him.

|dvuyxx||I'm trying out West Marine's CPP Ablative. It has about the same copper % as Interlux Micron and it's just $119/gallon with a $30 rebate in April. So it's $89. I've read it performs well ... but check back with me in the Fall.|
