Greetings... I am in Hong Kong
and have had CopperCoat on my 50 foot hull for 3 years. I was just under the vessel last week and wipe it down... The crew that put it on started with a good foundation of several coats of epoxy, and then put on the CopperCoat.
When I do dive under the vessel, I see that the smooth surfaces are clean, but any area that has an edge, there is a little growth. I am not complaining... Just saying it works great but nothing is perfect.
It is coral
worm season now in Hong Kong
, and I dive under the vessel every month to wipe down the edges... Never scrape like I had to with standard anti fouling.
Just adding my 2 cents to say it works well in this area.... But I know some boat yards thin the CopperCoat to earn some extra, and that will make the CopperCoat useless if not done right...
A friend has a 65 foot Dyna he had made last year. The builder
thinned the CopperCoat thus it was not working at all... and he had it done right by a local marine
yard last month that is a registered CopperCoat supplier at a cost that is 55% less then the builder
charged. Guess that will show the way it is put on makes a big difference !!!
