Bottom paint

Post by ChuckG » Tue Mar 12, 2019 12:59 pm

I sail in a small inland lake in central Indiana, mainly racing J24’s and J22’s. Currently I use VC17 but it gets pretty fuzzy quickly. Has anyone tried either Pettit Black Widow or Seahawks Biocop?

Chuck, I use hydrocoat SR on my bottom. This past season, we had excellent results. Come by my boat and take a look. I believe it is also significantly cheaper than VC 17. It's water based so no special suits or gear needed.
