Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull StarHydrocoat ablative antifouling really covers well, brushes well.
by John from Remer, Minnesota on June 19, 2016
I used one quart of red on a 25 foot Searunner trimaran (Jim Brown design from the 70s and 80s) and about 1/4 quart of the blue. The amas (floats on the port and one on the starboard) received 3 coats of red, and one coat of red and two coats of blue on the main hull. One quart of red was just enough for all that, but not enough to complete two more coats on the main hull. I have no estimate for the square footage at this time. The paint flows smoothly in temperatures below 72 but at 81 today, it began drying too quickly and I had to cut it with just a little water to keep the fluid quality flowing off the brush easily. The label says no more than 10% water dilution. I paint out of old tuna cans and add my water there if needed, not the primary can. The copper content is about 40% and the paint is very heavy. I stir with a chop stick and add paint from the can with an old plastic coffee scoop, about two scoops per brushing session to the tuna can gets about 2/3 of the main hull painted on one side and bottom. During cleanup of the tuna can and the brush, copper washes out of the brush as a dark substance and some of it will attach itself in a 'film' to a stainless steel sink but that is easily brushed off with no special anything. The copper is toxic and ends up in the septic here where it will quickly separate out in the early stages of the system. I don't recommend dumping the brush residues from cleanup down a sink that is connected to a public water processing system, but perhaps it might settle out a long time before it would reach the processing plant. The copper seems to stay in solution well throughout the brushing session. Aside from the toxic copper pollution aspect, I like the result when it dries into a nice firm surface and it will not rub off on your hand as you might think an ablative material might do, so I anticipate several years of good service from it.
