Reviews? PPG ABC3 Bottom Paint

PPGameron ABC3 bottom paint.
Haven't found any reviews from the small boat users - all tankers and super structures.
Compare it to TrinidadSR ????

Re: Reviews? PPG ABC3 bottom paint

We painted the bottom of our 46 foot sailboat while on the hard in San Carlos, Mexico in November of 2010. We pulled the boat out in April of 2012 and found very few areas of growth on the bottom. The only reason we repainted the bottom was that we didn't have any of the paint to touch up along the water line. It's the only place we had any growth since the paint wore off there during the infrequent cleanings we did. It lasted us clear to Fiji. One of the contractors in the yard looked at the bottom when we pulled it and said it really didn't need to be painted and that is after 18 months and 7,500 miles across the Pacific.
If I could get it out here, I'd do it in a heart beat.

Re: Reviews? PPG ABC3 Bottom Paint

I though there was another thread about this recently? Can't seem to find it.

Just had the Ameron rep to the boat. His advice, for a new paint job....

You want to out the abc3 on over the base coat of epoxy after the epoxy is no longer sticky but while you can still push your thumbnail into it.

I had waited too long and now it's flaking off.

Never used the Trinidad, but after 2 years and around 10,000 miles, very happy with the ABC3.
