Hello. Are you able to [apply anti-fouling] paint to SONAR Transducer [such as an AIRMAR B260]? If you could let me know, I am in the process of painting the bottom of my 42 Hatteras now.

Check with the manufacturer for guidance on what type of anti-fouling paint is recommended to be used with their transducer. I am certain they have a strong opinion on this topic.

I have used a special antifouling paint that is specially made for sonar transducers. Do not use normal antifouling paint because the solvents in some of these paints may attack the plastic on the transducer. The stuff I use comes in a small plastic bottle, and is sold at most chandeleries. It works pretty well at keeping growth off the transducer, and does not seem to have any effect on it's operation.
