Re: A question about coppercoat

We have hauled every hurricane season to store our boat. CC is a hard epoxy. One nice feature is, when cleaning slime, you can take a 6” metal putty knife to scrape it with no ill effects. Straps won’t affect it. No worries.

Does CopperCoat stay in tact when hauling out? Given it is epoxy mix coats, I assume so, but still would like to ask. 
I use regular ablative water based antifoul and every year my boat has marks from straps. and where the straps go, antifoul paint is mostly wiped off and needs painting.

CopperCoat has been the least expensive antifoul I’ve ever used. Spread that “high” cost across 10 or more years....

Craig, That sounds expensive, but I spent $1500.00 on bottom paint a couple of years ago. If you got six years for $2300. ,that would work out  pretty well,if it works for you ,seems to have had different results for different people ,probably application error.
