Replying to:Anti-fouling an RL28
After enjoying many swims over summer and employing a little effort with a scrubbing brush I have managed to keep Swan’s bottom reasonably clean even though it might be a year over due for an anti-foul. Now have it booked on the slip in a few weeks I have to work out what to do. So any advice or comments would be very welcome. I currently plan to use International Micron Extra. At $244 / 4 litres, can I get away with one tin to do 2 coats over most of the bottom with a 3rd as advised on the leading edges, near the waterline and in the outboard well? Do I need to do faces of the centre board or just the bit that is exposed to the water when up? Is Micron Extra the right choice for Brisbane moored in Manly? How much sanding of the surface is required? Do I take off all of the existing anti-foul paint or just give it a quick going over? How would I know if the surface will need priming – is that likely? Thanks
