Hi guys,

Any suggestions for a good anti fouling for my 15 feet fibreglass boat please? Ideally self polishing and seasonal. Any suggestions of a good one at a reasonable price? Most importantly where to buy it from  Wink Thanks.

CMP by WURTH Wink or International

Both good paints but pricey and most important they withstand after a year use but personally they double the effort to remove them then.

Lately I am better off using a lower strength antifouling like Sigma or Hempel which are easier to remove after. Careful that they might not be suitable to fast boats.

Barnicles will still form, regardless which brand you use but using a lower grade paint allows me to have the facility to do the job every 3-4 months when barnicles are on the low side.

Hope it helps.

We also use CMP on the kajjik last year the boat was in water in last April and pulled out beginning of oct, must admit this was the best paint ever used, few barnicles were attached and the paint was in very good condition...

CMP is a very good anti fouling Kev. But its hard to remove.

I still use it to paint some parts which I know are prone to barnicles.

Never tried it but I think it is harder to remove than sigma/hempel.

Personally it all boils down on how long you intend to keep the boat in the water.

My boat makes more than 40knts and we cruise at over 20knts and we use Hempel with no issues. There are different variants of Hempel antifouling however. Once we used a variant which was excellent in the water but a real pain to remove. From then on, we used softer compounds. I am sure other paint mentioned here are also good.

Nubian, Jotun and International all have soft self polishing antifouling for that speed. That is unless you would like to go for Nubian Permanent :-P
