Hi Richard, 5 years on one application is amazing. Can you tell us
1.Was Spice in the water all the time?
2.How many miles a year, roughly, did you sail and which seas/oceans?

Ok, one more opinion :-)
We had 5 years using one application of 2 coats of Interlux Micron 33
with excellent results; maybe it's available outside the USA as tin is
the 'active' ingredient and isn't allowed anymore on recreational
marine vessels. We applied Micron 66 ten months ago with great results
so far. Both are soft, or ablative, anti-fouling bottom paints.

Dear Richard and Joan,
thanks for your answer, it seams that there is no other opinion in the
whole forum. Therefore we will stay on the hard antifouling for the
next seasons.

Best regards

We like Pettit Trinadad SR for an all around hard paint. It has
worked by far better then any of the "soft" stuff we have tried...

Hi all,
what are the suggestions of the group about using hard or
antifouling. We are planning to do some longer sailing
(Turkey-Gibraltar-Canaries-Caribic-....) next time. Which
kind of
antifouling will be the best to use? We where told to take
antifouling, but I doubt.
Best regards
