Anti foul a boat

Recommended Posts

Got a little 14 foot boat that I use on the broads for fishing.... Taken out of the water and underneath was covered with green stuff...

Already jet washed it and half thinking of anti foul....

Read a few ways of doing it or am I better to leave to a professional?

It's easy to do.Just get the right antifouling for where your sailing

There are some good low cost antifouls out there. Have a look at Flag Paints in Essex http://flagpaints.co.uk/marine/ They do mail order. I've used them on both GRP and wooden hulls.

Do it yourself but do the prep needed.

 

It isn't hard but make sure you get the right type for both your boat and the water you'll be in. Also, some anti-fouls can only be painted very shortly before the boat goes back into the water, others can last months before.

 

International is a good UK brand.

Do it yourself it's only a coating.

One does simply not do DIY

Worried that will mess it up

clean off the old fouling power wash or sanding, apply primer, then topcoats, hardest part is to get the waterline level, some recommend you launch the boat a couple of days after antifouling to get maximum effect
