Re: Water based anti-fouling in the Chesapeake
I think I'm going to continue with the same paint that's on the boat now: Nautical ProGuard Ablative made by AkzoNobel.
For what it's worth, that's what I use on brackish water in Barnegat Bay, and it's been great for me. I didn't even really choose it on purpose...I tried to do some research online, but it felt like asking "What's the best religion?" and I wound up blindly going with the marina's recommendation. This year was my second haul out with it, and I've had absolutely zero hard growth (but definitely some on the prop, so I know they're in there).
Easy to apply, good open time in the tray but not bad drying time on the boat, toss the chip brush, paint tray liner, and the fuzzy part of the roller when you're finished, zip zap: done.
I'm trying to be more zen about this stuff.
