My thoughts are not about gaining more speed or fuel economy but are more about waterproofing my timber hull.

If the whole bottom below the waterline was painted then that would all but eliminate the possibility of any water penetration into the timber.

Whilst I have epoxy coated the timber hull, this would just add another dimension to waterproofing.

I love how its a spray on application too!

Lets hope it can be perminately submerged and can handle the abrasion of water over a period of time.

I'll share their reply when they send one.

This is a quote from there FAQ sheet:

"# 24 - Can you use Ultra-Ever Dry where it is continuously submerged in water or liquid, like the inside of a pipe with constantly flowing liquid?

No, this is not a good application. The reason is the nano-coating relies on a barrier of oxygen/air to form the barrier on the surface of the material it is coating. Unless the coating can become exposed to air every now and then, it cannot “recharge”. So coating the inside of continuously flowing pipes is not a prime application. If it is intermittent usage, it may work well. Steel coated with Ultra-Ever Dry has been immersed in salt water for 30 days without any effect."

All the FAQ are at http://www.spillcontainment.com/site...s%202-4-13.pdf

10 knots?? Well that's out for me.

Hop Car I don't think the 303 stuff was water tight but a little bit resistant. Yes it was for UV.

With this ever dry stuff you better be happy w the finish you've got cause you'll probably never ever get anything to stick to it again. So Hendo you better paint your boat first.
