The hull..

Information about the hull and deck. We want to try something like copperboot or similar for longevity and little maintanance.



Or maybe not copperboot.. We have rekoncidered this, and will use an ordinary anti-fouling. The reason is simple. We plan to keep this boat for another 2 or 3 years, so it will be a waste to spend a lot of money on things that will not pay off. Besides that, these paintings is not commonly available, so why put in the effort? We will use an epoxy mixture to prevent osmosis, and make her smooth as an infants butt...

We have removed all old layers below waterline, and will apply Seajet 117 epoxyprimer, and Seajet 033 selfpolishing anti-fouling. 3 coats of epoxyprimer, one coat of anti-fouling all over, 2 coats of antifouling near the waterline. Then we will put on a coat of Polytrol on the blue-stripe below the sheerline.
