It won't be long before like many of you I am going to buy antifoul for the coming season.
I have used a thin coat of Micron Extra (too mean to buy some , it came with the boat) and the next year Cruiser Uno)
Both were struggling at the end of the season with light growth on both. Both affected sailing and motoring speed over the last month or so of the season.
If I put Micron Extra on this year , in the right thickness and planned to leave the boat in the water next winter , could I just lift and spray off for the 2010 season ?
I know Uno does one year in one coat , it sort of did what it says on the tin. Micro Extra is advertised as a two year cover but it's probably a little more than twice the price. It does mean however , I can only lift the boat to spay off saving a little in 'on the hard' fees.
In forumites opinions does it go the distance ? I am based in Plymouth which seems quite 'fouly' to me.
( incidentally , I also picked up somewhere that if you roller it on you do not get enough on with 2 coats , I think to get it to last 2 seasons you must apply enough , I have a 25ft bilge keel cruiser and reckon I need 4-5ltrs for correct coverage)
