A step-by-step guide to anti-fouling your boat with how-to videos and safety advice
Surfaces to be painted must be clean, dry and free of oil or grease. Bare surfaces must first be primed with a suitable priming scheme, filling any major undulations with an epoxy profiling filler, remembering of course not to apply antifouling on top of bare filler!
Existing antifoulings in good condition don’t usually need any special preparation, but they can be lightly wet sanded, using fresh water, to remove small lumps and ‘blebs’ in the paintwork. Seajet 011 Underwater Primer is a great ‘all-round’ product and acts a perfect binder coat for old-antifouling and will provide a good base from which to apply your chosen antifoul coats.
