Re: Has anyone used painted coatings with electrodes as a form of antifouling?

As I posted earlier, ain't our gummint GRAND?


I guess the proposed copper ban in Marina Del Rey comes from the Coastal Commission. In it's own way, more oppressiive than the EPA

No, it comes from the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board. And it is far from being a done deal. Really, you should do a little research before you post about this stuff.

So yards will often ask the boat owner to have their bottoms cleaned before bringing the boat in to be hauled, if they suspect the bottom to be very foul. Does it make sense that the can't simply dump the stuff back into the water (which is essentially what would happen if a diver cleaned the boat in its slip)? Maybe not. But the yards are regulated differently than hull cleaners and that's they way things are.

Further (in regard to your original post), there currently is no ban on copper-based anti fouling paints anywhere in California. Yes, Washington State passed a ban that will come into effect over the coming years, but even if that affects you, it has nothing to do with the EPA, as you asserted.
Ain't government great?
