Bottom Paint Test / Lost Link

not to get into the LONG side of bottom paint discussion. I found a test result chart with comparisons of Fl and Ct. But now I can't find the damn thing now that I need it, So does anyone have a link to those test results

Have not seen it on the forum but Practical Sailor did a long term bottom paint test and compared FL vs NE, hard vs ablative paints and put the results in a chart. If you subscribe it might be available in their on line edition.
