Paint for running gear

2 posts in this topic

My 30 FT walkaround is docked in the Ashley  River in Charleston SC. I applied your JD Spartan bottom paint two years ago and it is still doing great with very little growth. The barnacles  and vegetation that does grow comes off with little effort on the fiberglass haul. The running gear,trim tabs and anything else metal ,was painted at the same time, is totally opposite. What should I be doing differently to stop the growth.

Thank you,

Dale

Keeping growth off metal running gear like trim tabs is a real challenge.  I've found that if you sand down to clean metal and put a couple coats of barrier coat primer like Totalboat Total Protect, then a couple coats of antifouling paint, that combination works the best.
