This looks like it cleans up easy. Is this a slick rubbery surface? Low drag and a clean boat after a bottom cleaning.

Re: Econea Based Bottom Paint Test

No, it was not a "rubbery surface." Yes, it cleaned up relatively easily (with the exception of the copious grassy algea, which had to be shaved off with a metal blade) but that's not the point. The point is that 60-day-old anti fouling paint should have almost nothing growing on it.

Got it. I was confusing echoed based paint with the silicon based paint.
