Re: Bottom paint - soft bottom inflatable
We used Petit antifouling paint for inflatables. It worked pretty well, but when we did bring the boat on deck for passages it left black powder all over the place. Took about three years of full-time cruising for this to stop happening.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
