Fine after (almost) 2 Years
By SkipRocks from St Augustine, FL

Unlike northern climes, here in Florida we get growth and the bottom requires regular cleaning - for boats that stay in the water that is. We applied 2 coats of black over 1 coat of blue in 2020. When we start seeing blue it's time to pull the boat and paint it. After 22 months in the water the bottom paint still looks good and is doing as advertised - with no blue paint showing through. After a good cleaning and scuffing we applied 2 more coats of black and are good to go.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Went on just fine

The boat hasn't been in the water since I applied the bottom paint but application went smoothly and the project time was as described even though it was a bit chilly. The color is a little disappointing as they described it as red and it's more like rust color. It'll all be underwater so I guess it really doesn't matter.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Spartan Paint
By Skipper from Old Greenwich, CT

Verified Purchase

Great paint. Arrived on time, competitive price. Used drill to stir for 10+ minutes (for even color consistency). Added Thinner as needed to smooth flow over wet epoxy barrier coat.. Used Wooster 1/4" foam roller to apply, got a really smooth finish, ditto on the 2nd coat.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent adhesion and coverage
By Riverbendmarine from Lake Conroe, Montgomery, Texas

Verified Purchase

This was the first time using this Bottom paint, and it covered very well. Most of the boats we do stay in the water most of the time. So I wanted to try this high copper content Ablative paint. The application was great. Good value I will use this product again.

Easy application and smooth finish.
