Does anyone have experience with hyspeedcote, a coating on top of the antifouling that is supposed to increase speed and lower noise levels ?

HySpeedKote reduces drag on underwater surfaces.

From the FAQ:
Q: Can HSK be applied over anti-fouling paint?
A: It can but doing so will limit the paint's anti-fouling properties since HSK does not shed barnacles.

I used to be involved in offshore race boats, power boats that is Of all the different speed coatings only a few showed slight improvements and that was for a short while before they washed off and these were boats with well cared for bottoms that lived on a trailer Save you money

Re: HySpeedKote

This thread has been closed -- sorry folks. A necropost from Hyspeedkote set off a rude discussion among the members, followed by posts by Hyspeedkote which were too commercial for our rules.
