Re: Social Justice for Marine Life, Ban all copper bottom paints since it kills barna

OK. So they will order huge quantities of non-copper antifouling and sell for profit at Sailor's Corner and Smart Marine.

Q: What antifouling will have on its bottom the cargo ship that will deliver the non-copper antifouling?

Really.

Ahh heck lets go back to red lead !! That will cure the copper in the water !! ( I am being silly here ) Its always something for folks to snivel about! if not copper, then bringing in the wrong sea animals to new locales! Gee we now have black shrimp down the Bayou in Louisiana!! and ya know they taste pretty good !!

Re: Social Justice for Marine Life, Ban all copper bottom paints since it kills barna

In NZ we take note of what the anti-cat guy says. He got $50million from the sale of an IT firm and said I've got enough, gave the 50mil to a charity. He's a motorbike cruiser, traveled with his wife by motorbike through many poverty stricken countries. Can disagree but hard to disrespect.

How about feral possums? Guess you should get rid of all imported animals - sheep, white people etc.... but then even the Maori's were immigrants weren't they?

We're using Eco Clad on our boat for this exact reason. We're primed and ready to apply so no real life cruising experience with it yet.
