Below we have mentioned a few very important tips to remember about bottom paint. Take a look.
- Not all paints are the same
There are generally 3 types of paints. A hard paint, which is durable and abrasion-resistant, but cannot be exposed outside the water for long durations. A self-polishing paint known as copolymer which can withstand being exposed to the air, and an ablative paint which is most commonly used to paint the boat bottoms.
- Variety of underwater flora and fauna
The type of underwater growth and the intensity of it depends on several factors like the temperature of the water, the saline content, the density of marine life, and also how often you use your boat. If you a frequent sailor then you must apply thick coats of bottom paint to protect your boat but if you are the opposite, then just a simple bottom scrub would do.
