Looking for opinions and sound advice on choosing a Bottom paint for my Boat . I have been using West Marines PCA GOLD ANTIFOULING/Ablative paint for four years now. I am happy with it, but it is getting a little pricey. Can anybody share what they use, and opinions on lastablity and price. I'm pretty sure it is going to have to been done every two years regardless.

Luis was able to get a good price on a gallon of Petit and he did an economical paint job that I was satisfied with, although it was rolled on a little rough which cuts down on hull speed. You want the Mexican paint with more copper in it than is permitted in the states.

From what I understand by reading about these Ablative paints, is that you need to constantly stir them with a power mixer because of the large amount of solids in the paint, and of course nobody really does that down here. I have heard that there is a paint store in Guaymas called International that has the best deal on bottom paint. Anybody know where that is, and if they sell by the gallon ? And what brand they sell ?

Stirred pots are usually used when spraying high solids (+50%) paints. Not sure if what the dry film thickness requirements should be without looking at the product's technical data sheet but if its thinner than 13 mls that is typically applied with a roller spraying would save paint, time and give a smoother finish appyling about 3 mils per coat.

This is a product data sheet of one of about 20 different bottom paints that Petit sells. Each product listed under alabative paint will have one of these and answer more questions than most painters in Mexico will ask, or be equipped to prep,meas.aure and apply. This is a water base that requires no sanding on the following years after you prep for the first coat and looks to cover 430 sq fett applying 2 coats of 1.5 mils each, dft, or 3.75 mls wet.

These data sheets usually come in spanish too.
