What about this Copper Coat, very long-lasting type which is meant to last over ten years. Anyone with personal experience? Apparently it is meant to be almost as good as copper sheathing, and because it does not wear off, it is non-polluting, or so we are lead to believe.

I dont know if they market it here in the States, at least I haven't seen this product before. *I don't know how much longer we will be allowed to use copper based paints here anyway. *

The EPA would like to outlaw it's use on non-commercial hulls, along with requiring you to store your sink and bath tub water.

I'm thinking maybe I will move to Oz too. *You got room for me there Peter?
