Hi, I had a bottom job completed on June 15 2012. I had a top brand ablative paint
applied via spraying. I had the boat splashed and immediately set off on a 5K mile race/return. When I arrived at the finish line I dove the hull
, all looked reasonable. Upon return, and a couple months of elapsed time, I notice that the ablative paint is nearly gone in large sections of the bottom. Is that type of wear normal ? Did the long miles take off the paint ? I have used this same paint for about 10 years on this vessel and had not noticed such a rapid erosion of the bottom. Will ablative paints wear off faster at higher speeds or warmer temps ?
Thanks for any info.
