I have used this paint for several years. I power wash and apply. I do this every two years. A diver periodically wipes down the bottom to remove slime. This is needed with the same frequency as with Micron 66,which I previously used. Hydrocoat gives a smoother finish, and requires very little sanding.

I bought an old boat with bottom paint in poor condition. I want to strip the bottom paint and do a nice job but no time this season so I tried to find just any bottom paint to do touch up. This stuff goes on fantastic and looks amazing, even without prep and over the crusty old stuff. I love it. I hope it does well in the water. I'm just about to launch mid August so I'll have to report back about the anti fouling but at this point I am thrilled with the product.

Absolutely the best paint for my sailboat

I used Hydrocoat on a 2006 Bayliner 285. I had the bottom blasted and I prepped the bottom with solvent applied two coats of barrier coat and two coats of Hydrocoat. Two years later I applied a third coat. It really didn't need it but I had almost a full gallon from my first application. It really didn't need it I was just trying to use the paint before it became unusable. This all started seven years ago. The boat is a freshwater boat used on eastern Lake Erie. I sold the boat four years ago and it is still docked at my same marina. The bottom still looks great. I will be applying Hydrocoat to the boat I own now.

I was a faithful CSC user for 30 years. Three years ago I changed over to Hydrocoat during our last vessel purchase. The results have been great. Hull is nice and clean after fall wash down each year.

Went on very nicely, but don't know how it will hold up reason for only 4 star. Have not had the boat out yet to try.
