Forget that bottom paint max - he's in denial. That's algae on his hull, not black dye.

Sorry Max, I don't know...I had a discussion with Fastbottoms a few days back, and he said you don't have that paint in the US..

But call Jotun.

See this thread.

Thanks Giu, I have not seen that paint before, so probably not available here.

I am sure Trinidad SR is superior anyways!!!

I looked at the Jotun web site -- no hint of US sales office. No other google hits with US addresses.

Makes me think it is not available here. Why not? I believe the EU standards for toxicity applicable to anti-fouling treatments are more stringent than US standards. So why shouldn't it be available here?

BTW Alex, you never answered the question about the algae-colored swath where the support was. That was NOT your waterline. What was it?

I did reply, and I even have a video of when she was hauled out, and even made it in a thread. and when it was done, it was "over" done...and coloured more than the boat..so just let it die, ok? I am not proud of that. We now have black sardines in Portugal.

By the way, the photos of the painting are not from now, they were from May 2007, when the boat was painted. When Tom and Val were there.

Not from now.

From now are the ones in the first post.

You won't win any races doing that... Also your mainsail trim looks awful!!

Maybe ve come over and teach you how to sail, no?
