Our Lagoon 380
has chewed through its Micron CSC ablative bottom paint
, and I want to go with something different this time around.
Did a lot of research
and came up with the SeaCoat Sea-Speed V 10 X, and I was wondering if any other catamaran
owners have used this on their boat
I know that Zatara has just put a similar type of coating on the bottom of their catamaran
, and Delos has the Seacoat, but I'd like to get more feedback from other people who've tried it.
The pros for me: 1. not as harmful to the environment
(although I'm not that sure copper is the massive toxin that people seem to think it is since barnacles
are becoming adapted to it), 2. lasts for 8 years, 3. can make the boat
a little faster (delos was seeing 1/2 to 1 knot
increase in speed, not sure that will translate to a multi hull)
Cons: 1. 250$/gallon, 2. may be harder to remove if I don't like it. 3. Did I mention 250$/gallon?
