Bottom Paint...

Last coat of Pettit Hydrocoat Copper Anti-fouling. Using Hydrocoat rather than the Pettit Trinidad 75 that is going on the bottom of the Solitaire as it does not mind being out of the water (on the fore deck). Will have enough time in the water (eg Boot Key Moorings) to justify the additional cost for anti-foul. Water base, lays down well, and quick to dry. 1.5 hr recoat time. 3 coats total. Did the hull in 3 coats of Pettit EzPoxy yesterday. Hope the hull is cured well enough that the tape doesn't lift it after bottom paint drys.
