Good product


Used this product for a few years now but this year was the worst. As you can see from the pictures the bottom found after 8 weeks in the Chesapeake Bay Area. The boat is tied up knapps narrows which water flows hard with the tide and it is fairycommon for all boats to get growth like this. Is there a better recommendation for a paint that wood perform better in my area. Last year this product worked much better for some reason.

So far, so good


This is my first time using this product. I applied two coats and it appears to be a high-quality bottom paint. I can't assess it's performance yet, so I'll write a follow up at the end of the season.

Was a breeze


The paint went on very well and even. We were thoroughly impressed with the coating that was conducted. Time will tell.. The only negative thing I have to say, shipping, horrible - the cans arrived beat up so bad one was actually open and leaking in the box. Honestly, I have no idea how they could even stay sealed for the most part as I have never seen a can so warped. Fortunately, all is good and 100% not on Jamestown, but the delivery service. At this point I would recommend this product.

Multi season bottom paint. This is the second time we used this product and it worked well in RI coastal waters.

Most pleased


Most pleased with the ease of purchasing the paint and nice touch in providing all items needed to apply the bottom paint. The paint went on smoothly with excellent coverage. Based on the positive reviews, I'm looking forward to two years of use with minor touch ups after first year.
