Poor coverage and adhesion,

I did not have favorable use of 'white' Krypton last season applied to a Cape Dory 28 Flybridge Cruiser; the paint is very thick and coverage is far less than stated, the 1st gallon only covered 2/3 of the length of the hull, the 2nd gallon completed the 1st coat and maybe 2/3 of a 2nd coat. Once in the water the 2nd cost peeled from the 1st coat in many areas, both coats peeled at the waterline, after hauling last Fall we noticed significant discoloring of the white paint, from last Fall thru today both coats are now significantly peeling in many areas which I'm thinking will require much more bottom prep for this coming seasons bottom paint application than previous paints had required. I've been bottom painting our sail & powerboats since the 80's, using many different products and have never seen this level of performance.However slime and barnacle protection was very favorable in our high growth area in Raritan Bay. I may use another Jamestown project but certainly not Krypton.

I ordered a gallon to bottom paint my 19 foot power boat. The boat sits on a mooring in Manchester, MA harbor and in the past has gotten pretty slimed up over the summer with copper-based bottom paint. This stuff works better - with a couple of bottom scrubbings in the water over the summer and a quick power wash after pulling the boat, it is really clean. I recoated it the 2nd year but think I could have simply touched it up as it is ablative. I have enough left for a third painting should I decide to repaint in the spring.

My first time application of Krypton with boat in the water in April has been very good up to this point through 4 months. This is a Lake Erie application with the boat permanently docked at my home in a very high sediment river. The slime at the water line is easily removed with a rag or soft brush. I will report back in late fall to comment on the overall durability and difficulty of cleaning the entire bottom, hopefully with a 5 star rating.

It looks nice when it's first put on but it rubs off and there is no cleaning the marks off.

Initially purchased two gallons of red Krypton. First gallon was rose color and needed quite a bit of mixing. Color stayed rose. Had to apply because I had just applied an epoxy barrier coat. Needed to open second gallon. It was pretty well mixed and was bright red. Ordered a third gallon for a second coat. It also was well mixed and bright red. Concerned that the initial gallon may have been bad. Any thoughts?
