In Topic: befuddled by bottom paint

We've used Baltoplate for years.  Boat is out of the water from Dec. to April.  We re burnish in the spring and touch up scuffs and keel bottom and get 2 years.  We do scrub at least biweekly in the Chesapeake but we would do this with any paint.

Phil did us one for our Hobie33 some years back.  We never spun out again.  He did it on the old post to save some $.  It probably will cost you 3 sec/mi. though. And you DO need to tell your handicapper.

Sailtec is good.  You might check on Holmatro as well. After a while the cylinder walls get scored and seals won't fix it.
