Seahawk Cukote Bottom Paint

If you have experience with it, is it any good? This would be applied to a steel hull in NorCal.

Re: Seahawk Cukote Bottom Paint

I purchased my 40' sailboat in July 2005, knowing that it was about due for a bottom job; she's berthed in a canal in Clearwater Beach, FL. In July 2006, I had the bottom done by Snead Island Boat Works in the Tampa Bay area. Because I was completely inexperienced, I allowed them to select the paint, and they chose Seahawk Cukote. Since then, a local diving company cleans the bottom of my boat monthly and they give me a report after each cleaning. This year (6 years later), they report 4 our of 10 (0 = no paint left, 10 = brand new paint), except on the running gear (e.g., prop, through-hulls) where it's effectively gone. In spite of that good report, I've decided to do a bottom job this year -- Snead Island, and CuKote. I couldn't really be any happier with it .
