Nothing definitive yet as I am about to complete my first season with Hydrocoat in New England
. My first impression is that it is very easy to apply, easy to clean up after, and has much less of a nasty chemical smell. However, it is also very soft and has been easily rubbed or scraped off my boat in various places over the season, and I know there are at least some barnacles
growing in various places. However, I moor in a very fertile river where that happens with almost any paint
. I would recommend having some sort of harder bottom paint
underneath, like Trinidad, to provide a more resistant finish when the Hydrocoat gets scraped off in places.
