We keep our sailing school
boats in Antigua
. The problem with bottom fouling is major! After antifouling paint
has been applied we find we need to get the boats' bottoms scrubbed clean every month or so - this then scrubs off the self abrading paint
, and is also very expensive in diver costs. It has been suggested that good quality gloss bottom paint
will be more cost effective - easier for the divers to clean, and will last longer. Any thoughts??? Will it be difficult to get rid of the anti-foul paint that is left on the hulls, to be able to replace it with a gloss finish? Any thoughts on what gloss paint would work?
