Great paint, Improved spray can performance


I have been applying this to my outboard bracket for the last few years, given we keep the boat in a slip all season long. The paint performs very well - it does exactly what it is meant to do.A lot of reviews complain about the spray can mechanism failing, which is a problem I have faced in the past. This year however the can I purchased from Jamestown working flawlessly through several uses. I may have just gotten lucky, but it seemed to me the manufacturer had sufficiently addressed problems with the can.

Barnacles still cling


Sprayed bronze prop on sailboat moored Long Island Sound. Four months later, a dive below showed barnacles and other growth attached firmly. Whereas cheap ablative paint (containing copper) applied on rest of bottom worked well in keeping critters off.

Used it for years with satisfaction!


It definitely works to keep outdrives clear of barnacles. Simple to use but wish it were made in clear.
