    When was this. HMC have only recently picked this up. When i was getting the hull painted in May they had only applied cc to 2 boats

    Morning BP Thanks for the referral to HMC. I emailed them last night & Richard rang me this morning. He was very helpful & discussed application techniques. He is going to send me a quote through.

    I had a shocking experience with the official applicator and ended up redoing a lot myself. But that is not a reflection on the product. 

    I believe they are now defunct. I would simply do it myself next time, but if you are allergic to epoxy I would trust HMC.

    Great thanks for the tip BP

    I do have to jump in and give it a wipe every few months, but just slime, no hard growth so in warm water a pleasant task. Just hope the bureaucrats leave me alone.

    Thanks again BP

    No5 is an ablative antifoul. You wouldn't want to haul and pressure wash with that.

    Harder antifoul like Ultra will stand up to regular high pressure washing, but tends to be a little less effective in the first place. Some of the spent oxide layers will still come off, more if you scrub it with scotchbrite or a sanding grid.

    Thanks for the info DoT

    Thanks BP. Very helpful. I just googled Coppercoat & got Parker Marine Group. Does it need to be ordered from there or do other retailers have it?

    I'm finished with antifouling paint.  I spent about twice as much and put on coppercoat.  Hauled for the first time in 4 years in May. Water blast and wipe with a scotchbrite pad and it's  like new. Financially I'm ahead and the marketing says it's good for 10 years.

  6. Hi all

    I have a 26 foot keeler moored at Little Bucklands Beach in Auckland. I enjoy weekend cruising either day sails or overnight.

    As soon as lock down is over I will be looking for crew again. If you are interested in finding out more, please message me your email address & mobile number.

    Thanks

  7. Hi team. Just a question on Altex No.5 ablative antifouling. I have used it on 5 different keelers over 20 years. My current boat is not a race boat but a Cavalier 26 but I do use it most weekends. I generally haul out every 12 months & apply 2 coats. Upon relaunch I find that the antifoul lasts 4 or 5 months before I start to see a film of slime build up. Initially I used to get in the water & gave the boat a wipe down but found that clouds of antifoul came off. This resulted in the next layer of slime building up that much quicker. Not rocket science really! The last 2 years I haven't wiped down. Upon haul out, there has been some fouling with some barnacles. What are people's thoughts? Leave well alone or wipe off & if so how often? Does anyone go for a lift, wash & back in bearing in mind that this is a cruising boat only? Thanks for your thoughts & advice.

  11. We are heading to to Rotoroa Island & the bottom end of Waiheke Island for this coming Waitangi Weekend on a Cavalier 26. Leaving Saturday morning & returning Monday evening. We have room for 1 couple or 1 single. Let me know if keen.

  12. Just a reminder about the long weekend coming up this weekend. Thanks to those who have got back to me saying that they can't make it however at this stage I haven't got any crew so if anyone wants to come out for a 3 day 2 night trip then please let me know. I can take 1 couple + a single or 2 singles.
     
    I am also open to other suggestions ie 1 overnight instead of 2 or just a day sail or 2.
