antifouling

Our Greek yard quote Stoppani Stopmar antifouling as an alternative to Micron Extra. Does anyone have experience with this paint?

Re: antifouling

We had excellent results with Stopmar lasting more than four years including hauling out each season. It is so inexpensive as I believe it is priced for the local fisherman. I could not find any this year and had to use Stoppani Fisher Active which they say is the same thing. We will see....

Which Greek yard is still selling Stopmar?

Re: antifouling

I've not heard of the bottom paint about which you are asking.
However, I spent many years commercial fishing on the BC coast and remember vividly slapping on gallons of red lead paint, most of it on the hull, but a fair bit over myself, back in the 50's, after caulking the entire hull on 50-70 footer wooden vessels.
I understand the this is now forbidden by some governmental douchbag but believe me, it lasted well, kept the growth off the bottom and torridos on the out side of the hulls.
I should mention I am pushing 80 years old now and have not yet suffered any long term ill effects of my misspent youth!

Apparently there are varying definitions of 'douche bag'.
