chipped away. I was going to use Interlux
Micron 66 which is good but wanted to see if anybody had other opinions regarding this issue. When i come back in 6 month im going on a 6 month windward/leeward island sailing trip with the fam. Cheers for the info.
You don't state where you are yet...
Here in Singapore
with a high growth environment
and ~26 DegC water
I have used 3 different paints. Micron Extra has so far worked the best - I can't afford Micron 66.
generally used weekly, I wipe the hull
every month. At about 12-13 months I have to wipe the hull
every 2 weeks and at 18 months I have to reapply.
