Ihad a heavy sanding done this spring and used 66 I did not see 77 in the store.
They used 6 gallons including painting over the orange stripe this year as kimberlite sits down by the keel
I hope next time i haul i will use only 5 gallons. I will keep a look out for 77.
what is the difference?

Most of the places we have hauled sell Micron in 20 liter pails. It works perfectly for 2 good coats all over and a third coat from the waterline down about 12-18", the leading edge of keel and skeg, and all of the rudder. We usually have about a liter or so left over which we discard.
We generally haul every 2 years. We hauled this July which was 2 years and 3 months, but probably could have waited for 3 years as the Med is not the Tropics.
