          Comments about Interlux Ultra with Biolux Bottom Paint:

          I live in the Florida Keys and barnacles are always a problem. I painted the bottom of my 24 proline two years ago. It stays in the water year round at the dock. Not one barnacle when I pulled it out recently. Good stuff.

              Comments about Interlux Ultra with Biolux Bottom Paint:

              I just had to disagree with the reviewer that didn't like Ultra. We are about to repaint after 3 years on our old bottom, in warm South Texas waters. We are just now getting hard growth, and we went algae free for about 2 years. I'm not sure I could ask for more of a paint. For the poster that had a problem, I'd have to think he got a bad batch of paint.

                  Comments about Interlux Ultra with Biolux Bottom Paint:

                  We used this over interlux interprotect on a sailboat that has a slip in the Morro Bay State Park Marina. Silty, dirty, slow moving, and variable salinity water. Growth around us (other boats and docks) is substantial. We spent the money and use this counter to the recommendations of the local yard.

                  It's been three years now and we finally noticed some plant growth on the tiller. Diver comes on Friday. Yes, I said three years.

                  A+

                        Comments about Interlux Ultra with Biolux Bottom Paint:

                        I tried Interlux Ultra on four different boats and had horrible results on all of them. I have used dozens of bottom paints over the last 40 years and I have never seen a bottom paint be so completely ineffective. It is a premium priced product and performs much worse than the cheapest bottom paints. Some International Paints "Interlux" products are good, but this is not one of them, or they sold me a bad lot of 10 gallons. The photos are of 7 months growth in New England waters.
