Best Antifouling for Med ?

We currently have Pettit's 60% antifouling - it was perfect for west Atlantic and Caribbean. For us Micron CSC was absolutely terrible for those waters.
Now we're in the Med and soon we'll be redoing the paint. What antifouling are you the happiest with IN THE MED?

The slime here looks different from North American slime...

Thanks!

Re: Best antifouling for Med?

very little fouling in the med,but if you can get it i would continue with the pettit or equivalent.

if you can find "tamarine" in turkey this is a tbt based paint and will last at least 2 years.

what ever you use,you need to be careful about over painting,pettit is a co-polymer ablative paint,so stuff from jotun,or hempel wont stick to it.

tamarine,international,etc will

Re: Best Antifouling for Med ?

in greece over the yrs I have used Micron extra , 3coats of primecon and 2 coats of micron extra with a third coat from water line down 3ft and am getting 2 1/2 seasons but have found also by leaving yacht on the hard for 3 months before going back into water i get better results 95% of charter yachts use blakes and only just get a season and also so they spray on of which i wont do but friends have gone to jotun and are getting good results

Titan Self Polishing has done very well for us over the past two seasons.

Re: Best Antifouling for Med ?

We sailed over in 2013 from the Carib -- before we left we painted with Sea Hawk TBT and extra TBT -- we are full time liveaboards and the boat is in the water year round. We got 3 years out of our Sea Hawk and as I write this we are on the hard - we sanded and put on a primer and will put on 2 coats of Micron 77 with 3 coats on the waterline and all the leading edges. We hope to get 2 years out of it.
And we sail a lot with over 2,000nm in the last 3 years in the Med and plan on 2,500nm this coming summer.

Re: Best Antifouling for Med ?

I've put on 3 layers Seajet Platinum who are /were the only ones claiming a 2 year cycle of non-fouling. Happy so far with the result.
