Heard of this Bottom Paint?

Some mob is talking up this paint for the haul-out.
I think its for ships.... well there's a ship in the photo on the web page!

What do you think?

Hi Mark, I know its definitetly used on steel ships, its used on my tug. We dont dock the tug for 5 years, so its meant to be good for 5 years, but in reality its not, we're showing signs of fouling after 1 year, and its expensive. Not sure if it needs a specific primer, you'll need to check with International

OK to use on fiberglass? Its cheaper than Micron 66 et al.

Thanks mate! Lasts for 36 months! Do I have to halve that and divide by 6?

It might be a goer!

I wonder if this is a modified formula of their Ultracoat, which IMHO, was the best of the hard finishes from I'national. For some reason, our EPA equiv. made it illegal here in Bda.
