Though it pains me to even think about it, I realize that I need to bottom paint the new Conquest I am contemplating purchasing. (if I purchase it of course)

It will be moored in Puget Sound saltwater. Any recommendations on specific paint for this boat in this region? Thanks, jerry

90% of the Puget Sound boats we paint are done with Pettit Unepoxy, black being the #1 color.

defender,
I have a couple of gallons of Proline bottom paint in my garage that I will not be using, color is blue I think. One gallon is probably enough for your boat. It is yours if you want it.

Defender,

I am using Interlux Micron CSC as my boat spends much of its time on a storage rack out of the water. It works nicely when in the water as well. After mooring the boat in the water for six weeks in the San Juans I had a scum line and not much else.

Thanks for the tips. I am also going to check with Eric as you suggested Dick. I had one other tip on interlux micron extra.

I've always had a boat on davits. I never knew there were so many alternatives. Just wish I didn't have to do it. Thanks again, jerry

Defender,

I too moor my boat on Puget Sound. I have had excellent luck with Interlux Micron CSC. I choose the shark white color as I find it less offensive then the black and blue color. I have gotten two years out of my bottom pain and will need to touch-up this spring.

Good luck,

John
