Yes Richard I googled up Trinadad and found the price in the US was Xy as well. I also found a site here from the government pesticides & vetinary authority recalling all Trinadad antifoul, it diddn't say why, but I have a fair idea. We pay around 200-250 per 4liters for anti foul paint. Altex 5 is a New Zealand product.

Conn, you are not alone on the price issues, we have seen bottom paint from US$400 down to 225 for the same can of paint.. Be advised and look around..... We don't see Altex X here in the US or Caribb.
Enjoy the boat... Richard on SM 209

Thanks again Richard. Our old boat was a 30 footer so I diddn't know how much to order for the larger size. 5 gallons here costs over 1000 bucks so I diddn't want to over order. I don't know if I can get Trinadad in OZ. Iwas going to use Altex V.

We us two coats after sanding with rough grit paper. Given you have a Mango be shore to check for blisters. If you have them take care before you paint. Paint does not hold well to blistered areas.
By the way we generally get 2 years out of Trinadad SR.
Good luck. Richard SM209

We haven't had our Mango for long and I am slipping it soon. Just wondering about how much antifoul paint I might need.
