Bottom Painting

Bottom Painting is a critical component of your boat’s maintenance plan. A clean hull is safe, fast and efficient, and a fouled bottom cuts your top speed, damages maneuverability and lowers your fuel economy.

If the bottom is in good shape and the paint shows no sign of chipping, flaking or crazing, all it takes is a light sanding prior to applying a coat of anti-fouling Interlux Paint. It’s the simplest answer to bottom work but it’s only appropriate for a boat bottom in good shape with little or no sign of paint or gelcoat problems. Using this approach on a boat plagued with deeper problems can be worse than simply postponing repairs.

A badly blistered bottom requires careful review. It’s a labor-intensive requiring an experienced surveyor or skilled fiberglass technician and get a pro’s slant on the problem and your range of options.
