Hi all,

 

Looking to repaint my Raven 26's bum shortly. The International Awlcraft I used previously was heavily fouled after a year with barnacles and oysters featuring heavily. Any thoughts on good products? My boat isn't used as much as it should be so can be on the mooring for months at a time....

I’ve always sworn by micron 66 but then it stopped working and had to shift to 77 then ultra. But i now think it’s better to stick with a local NZ manufacturer that better caters for local conditions (like Mahurangii’s mix of salt with fresh).

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.
