I have been offered enough Coal Tar Epoxy/black to give my boat a few coats of coverage.
My first question concerns how well this will work for our boat when we get south in the Caribbean
, as in Martinique
south. Will this keep the bottom reasonably free from the usual suspects, will it end up being a nightmare or will it fall somewhere in between? How many years between haul out
will I be able to expect...or should I figure this in minutes?
My second question concerns adding cayenne pepper to the antifouling I do eventually use. I know some will discredit the idea out of hand but I do remember quite a few comments years ago from some pretty knowledgeable sailors with experience in the southern Caribe.
Let the war begin.
