Re: Seahawk Bottom Paint - **UCKS!
Why two different types? I don't think that had anything to do with performance, though - just curious.
Frankly, we haven't found many paints that work worth a crap South of North Carolina, and almost none that work South of Florida.
The exceptions are Micron 66, which holds up for a year, and can be stretched to two years - but it is so soft it goes away very quickly. The last paint we used was Ameron ABC3, bought from a local PPG paint store, and cost $90/gal. This has been the second best paint we have ever used in the tropics, and the only one in the US I will apply now. The best paint is found in the Caribe, but is illegal in most other places. It really works, but I won't say any more because our resident hull cleaner here will get his panties in a wad and make us listen to him rant.
Other than these exceptions, every other paint we have used has performed like you are experiencing.
The boat we recently bought came with CopperCoat. So far, I'm not impressed, and fear painting is in our future again.
