Suggested type of bottom paint?

Recommended Posts

I'm read up enough to understand the difference between hard and ablative bottom paint. My boat won't be trailered or out of the water until storing in winter, but ablative still seems the way to go so I wouldn't have to repaint it with hard every spring.

Am I missing anything? What's your preferred type?

The VC-17 is what we have used on our boat up in Ludington. It does a very good job, touch up is easy and it lasts. Our new boat has West Marine CPP on it and i am not as happy with it, does a good job, but boat is not as clean and does not seem to last like the VC-17. The VC-17 is a thin film and will keep the bottom of the boat smooth as well.
