Re: Antifoul Paint

I don't know what's in Roundup -- I try to stay away from stuff that toxic.

Re: Antifoul Paint

Thanks for this info Ausaviator, but as i was an agronomist in another life, i would think that this weed killer soon will be washed out in the water and loose its effects, however it is still worth a try i guess...

Best rgds

Re: Antifoul Paint

Ceyenne pepper added to the paint does a failry nice job of helping with the barnacles and won't get you in trouble with the greenies. last haul out I did one hull with cayenne, and one without. Although each hull still had growth over time you could tell a difference between to the hulls. In the yard right now and just about to apply a bottom coat. fascinated by idea of using round up.

Re: Antifoul Paint

Roundup only works if sprayed on green leaves or growth. (photosynthesis portion of the plant) If poured in the ground on the roots, it will not harm the plant or weed. Therefore I would speculate that it would not prevent bottom grouth.

Re: Antifoul Paint

Hi Pieter,

How much antifould did you end up using?
I think it's a very good idea to seal the hull of your Lavezzi, these boats are known to have problems with blistering.

Re: Antifoul Paint

It's worth putting the pepper, roundup and anything else in there if a. They don't affect the paint and b. You aren't worried about the environment :-)

Just don't tell anyone, there are big fines in NSW, Australia and I imagine the rest of the world for doing this sort of thing.

By the way what ratio do you use?

Re: Antifoul Paint

Esteemed forum members,
Just a report regarding last weeks haul out.... Over here at location, to get a boat on the hard is a very expensive operation... I received a quotation by a warf, including labour, paint etc etc for Us$ 4375 (Using AkzoNobel International paint). This i politely declined... Then there was this other haul out set up... truly a very primitive situation, but as i had no other choice i took this and had to pay Us$ 1125 + Us$ 225/day.... I paid Us$ 125 per gallon of antifoul paint (Renner, braz brand, good quality). I purchased 3 gallons, but unfortunately that was barely enough for 2 layers, i wished i had purchased a total of 6 gallons to get a good job done (of course, in the Angra dos Reis area, there was no outlet or representative of Renner so i couldnt purchase more...)
Anyway, next time i guess i will first clean the hull completely in the water, then beach her, and get the paint job done...For reasons beyond my comprehension, all of this work is way too expensive here in Brazil (note: on the warf (looking like a ship grave yard...) no staircase/ladder available for a safe exit to the hard...on the up side, got a lot of streching and work out done during this time..)

All the best,
Pieter Kommerij

A NSW Maritime officer showed me a NSW government bulletin which stated as he explained that it is an offence to put any type of pollution into NSW waters.
I was asking about cleaning the bottom of my boat, basically feeding the fish with the growth I was taking off.
I know everyone does this but itís still illegal in NSW, donít ask me to justify this law.
And yes he told me there are large fines for cleaning your boat in the water.
I know antifouling does this but apparently itís approved.
So you can imagine what they would say if you started using highly toxic chemicals in your antifouling.

Re: Antifoul Paint

Last bottom job took 3 gallons. I got 2 coats, and about 5 leading edges. This time I will use 2 colors, so I know when I am getting thin on paint.......i2f

Jeannius, Please explain why an Easy Cruise is longer than a basic version. Also what is different about the EZC from standard? Thanks BOB
