Do you know if the Coppercoat works in the Caribbean. We are seriousely considering this option. We met a person in St Lucia who was having it removed as he said it didn't work in the Caribbean and he had it put on in the states.
Does anyone have experience with this product or CUPTONE that they market in Grenada?

I tried Dilunett, it works without damage to the gelcoat. But, just to be on the safe side, I'd still wash the hull down afterwards.

Coppercoat is great, even in Med waters.

We intend to coppercoat our hull and in these recessionary times we are considering doing the work ourselves. We seek advice as to the most effective method of anti-foul removal, and wonder if strong caustic might do the trick, or would it damage the gel ?.
