I have a AquaPro alum RIB
which is used in southern NE waters. The dink is in the water
for the entire 7 months of the sailing season and the growth on the bottom required several serious cleanings. Two years ago I applied a bottom paint
for inflatables... can't recall
the product's name.
Second year I simply over painted since hardly any paint
was left... the dink was stored bottom up outside. I have now finished the can of paint
and wonder if simply over painting is how it's done. Obviously sanding
is out of the question and paint removers seem to be iffy at best.
Anyone else painting RIB
bottoms with antifoul paint? How do you deal with it season after season?
