Bottom Paint
« on: March 26, 2021, 10:28:33 AM »
What does everyone use when painting the bottom of the boat?  Found a bunch of posts where people painted but didn't see a list of the recommendations.  Boat is only in water when we're using it, otherwise it's on the trailer with carpeted bunks. 

Thanks,
Bill

Bottom paint is only needed on boats that sit in water all summer.
There would be no need if you remove boat every night or it just sits in water for a day or two.
It has stuff in it to keep algae and other stuff from building up on your hull.


Why do boats require bottom paint? (scroll down) ...
