After the ordeal I just went through with Dolphinite and its "GO SLOW" paint, I am of the thought to go cheap, put it on, get a good season out of it, power wash it off in the fall and resand and reapply in the spring.

Sorry, but this left a bad taste in my mouth and a load of work on my hull.

I have used VC17 on my last three boats. If the hull is prepped good it will last for years and NEVER chip off. Its to thin too. It has teflon in it for better gas mileage and speed.

We need to have the bottom refinished also this year...but I just do not have to the time to do it. Does anyone out here do this for a living? I would rather give my business to a LSCN member.
Thanks, Cindy

Doing bottom coat/paint this season also, probably going with a VC-17. Really would like a translucent type (not Dolphinite)

Otherwise going with blue like my gelcoat color.

I've used VC-17 in the past and more recently West Systems. Different applications and I have been happy with both.

I use VC-17 and think it's one of the best. Interlux has a web site you should check out that lists their various products. If you use vc-17 over a non teflon bottom paint though it will flake off. Prep is very important.

ditto on the v-17......we don't bottom paint now that we rack store. Always used it on our old boat when we kept it in the water. We used to keep it on a canal by Metro and you know how nasty that water gets......so that stuff works great!
