Spartan Paint

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.

Great in Maine, not so much in WLIS
By Patrick from WLIS, Maine, etc.

Verified Purchase

Two coats of Spartan - my first use of this paint. We spent a few weeks in WLIS in June with no growth. Off to Portland, ME for 2.5 months with minimal growth. Sailed back to WLIS and within a week gained significant soft growth appeared between 1 foot under the waterline to 2'. Not a bad product, but not as good as SR60 or Micron 66 for that environment.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
