    Still going strong except the bit that is direct onto the lead keel. getting anything to stick to lead is a PITA and coppercoat is no exception. Preparation is the answer - wire brush the lead to bare and immediatly epoxy so the epoxy goes onto shiny abraded lead surface. Maybe even a single layer of glass. Then coppercoat that. But of course the problem is that if you dry out against a wall in say Padstow or Falmouth, you break the epoxy, let water in and away you go again.

    On the GRP hull its going fine and I would expect it to work for another 5 years yet.
    this post is a personal opinion, and you should not base your actions on it.
