Pettit Hydrocoat SR Customer Questions and Answers

1 of 1 Questions


my boat is moored in fresh water, never sees salt. Do I need the most toxic paint, i.e. Trinidad, or can I use Hydrocoat and still get good life on the paint? Is the Hydrocoat SR necessary, or does the regular Hydrocoat suffice?

I used to use Interlux Micron paints and it was OK then I went to the regular Hydrocoat and it much better, the finish after it is dry is "slicker" like a gloss! Clean up is much easier and the results where a lot better. I too am a solely fresh water boater. Slime and algae are my greatest concern. This year I am trying Hydrcoat SR to see if it will have a little more bang for the buck. I am a weekend boater but not every weekend so when I do go out I want the stuff growing on the bottom to come off ASAP

Dunno- I suggest you ask other at your marina what works. I keep my boat in brackish water and have been happy with Trinadad, lasted three years. and also Blue water SCX held up for 2 1/2 years. What works in my area may not be advisable in yours. Or try hydrocoat and see what happens. I would think it would last at least one year. Good luck.

Can't say what fresh will do but in salt, I saw no discernible difference by upgrading to SR. I am happy with Hydrocoat and I have been trying different paints for years.

Sorry, this is my first experience with this bottom paint. I would suggest going to the Pettit sight and there will be a place to send an e-mail for technical questions. I got a helpful response to my inquirer. Greg

This paint is overkill for fresh water applications. I used Interlux VC-17 with great success when we had the boat in fresh water up north.
