How often do you have a diver clean the bottom and running gear, or do you just do this annual pressure wash

Our Marina doesn't allow divers (stupid, stupid, stupid!) so we just haul out every 6 months or so. Works out pretty good, looks like next haul out we may soda blast the hull. We're also having a transducer installed right now, she's scheduled to go back in Tuesday. Been happy with the prop speed so far, just a little shark skin on the prop by the hub, probably formed because the boat wasn't used for awhile. The wing was a little worse though as it's not run often.

So what is the philosophy on banning divers from the marina? Besides the obvious of money not going in their direction.

Don't really know.

The paint seems to be holding up well. How old is it? What kind is it?

My question exactly!

It's Sea Hawk Bio-Cop.

Thanks!

Parks - have you comment on that brand bottom paint... looks good in haul-out picture. Oliver - photo just after pressure wash?? Probably...

The third photo was after pressure washing. We're leaving the paint alone this time, although some did start coming off around the through hulls and other under water penetrations those are going to be sanded and repainted. We had a bonding problem that was resolved, which most likely caused the through hull paint issue.Attachment 40329

Looks just like one of mine.

Art, Bio Cop has a pretty good reputation. It might not be as good Now as it was about a year ago. They were putting illegal tin based biocides in it. One of the company big wigs actually got arrested. I don't know what happened after that, but I don't imagine they are still doing it.

My guess is that they were making it for export for use where it is legal and some got into the U.S. Market.

Possible liability issues concerning electrocution from stray electric current in the marina.

Being a marine guru with years of marine store background would you like to mention your recommendations for best bottom paint in saltwater and the best in freshwater?

Ditto (powerwash, hull and zinc inspection/treatment, propeller treatment, and every other year, new bottom paint).

Art, I only know South Florida. Around here Interlux Micron 66 and Pettit Trinadad SR are very popular. I think any of the dual biocides paints are pretty good and you should be able to get two years out of them with some scrubbing in the second year. If you repainted every year, cheaper paint will work.
There is one product I really believe in, Prop Speed. I haven't found anything that works on a prop for anywhere as long as PS.

Nice install. What 'ducer did you go with and what kind of readings are you after? Forget if you have Furuno gear, but RezBoost, by any chance? Asking because I'm days away from pulling the trigger on one.

Practical Sailor tests bottom paint for fresh, brackish and sea water.

2 or 3 year tests.

I just had a conversation with the Sea Hawk rep yesterday. Parks you are correct. 9 gallons got into the US market.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I had an issue with the install of SeaHawk last fall. Through no fault of the product it failed. Well they now have a crew at the installing yard and are right this moment stripping and replacing everything using their people at no charge.
You can't get better customer service than that.
Thank you Sea Hawk !
