Bottom Paint

I need to repaint my bottom this year and was wondering what everyone is using. What brand is giving the best results?   Boat is located in the Ohio River.

 

Thanks for the help.

    I would ask around your area for what works on the water by you.

    I used Interlux Interprotect for Barrier Coat - 4 coats and Micron CSC for antifouling - 2 coats.

     

    This is as per Interlux's advice. 

     

    If installed correctly it will last for years, and reapplication of the micron CSC is very easy.

    Huff, most of us one of several brands. My gel coat guy uses Interlux. But my opinion is that BD's advice to see what the guys in your area are using is very wise advice. There are often region specific marine growths and "critters" that all the local guys know about and then can recomment which type of coatings and whether it should be ablative or non-ablative etc. Some research  on your part first will pay-off tremendously over time.
