Good lord, why would I lie???. I did take a 2 or 3 two week trips to the delta
in 2010. But most of the time the boat was in Richmond. Doing short trips to china
camp or sausalito, or bouncing around the bay. Was it brand new clean after 6 months... probably not, But if there was any growth on it, it fluffed off while sailing. Was not any I saw or felt anyway...
One thing is for sure. I've not had a diver clean it in 3 year now. Other then cleaning
of the water
line, because the boot stripe is touching the water
, and maybe twice a year this last year where i cleaned the upper 2-3 feet of the hull
, I've been pretty happy with my magic paint
Like I said it does have some soft growth on it now, but most still fluffs off even today after a long sail. Oh the paint on the water line is starting to go, a few spots at the bow where the old bottom paint
is showing through, though still no hard stuff.
I'm thinking it might need repainting next year after 4 years.
Besides you want to see aggressive bottom growth go to southern florida
in the summer. The bay is not at all in that league.
Maybe it only works for blondes
BTW sorry for the thread drift again.....
