RE: Bottom Paint

I'm going to try something different next time. *In the past I used interlux with good success. *But this Micron CSC is not what the yard claimed it would do. *I used Pettit Trinidad before and as I recall it was fine. *

I actually used West Marine cheap paint once and it lasted over 4 years. But during haulout, as they were pressure washing it, small water bubbles were forming between the bottom paint and gelcoat. *The surveyor about panicked, thinking it was blisters!! As it dried it started coming off in big patches. *Had to take the rest off with a garden hoe. *Won't do that again. **
