Petit Ultima Eco?

Hi,

Has anyone used this copper free paint from Petit? They claim that it is a multi-season paint.

FWIW- Have not had good results with any zinc-based paint here in the Bay Area. Suspect it may be due to water clarity, as zinc-based paints are photo-reactive, meaning the more sunlight they receive, the better they work. If your water is murky (and since your boat probably lives up a creek or river, it likely is), you may not like the performance you get. Don't be the ginuea pig, is my advice.

How do you think it would do in clear water, such as Forida, the Bahamas, Caribbean?

I wouldn't care to guess, not having had any experience with these products in those regions.
