Looking for suggestions on brand/type of bottom paint for Catalins 30. Will one gallon be enough. I’m located in the Seattle area.
Thank, Tom

The paint can will tell you the coverage. I have a 30 foot boat and it takes 2 gallons.

Just completed by bottom job on a Catalina 30 using Sea Hawk AF-33 Antifouling paint. It took 2 gallons, cans were empty when finished. I hope this helps somebody.

The brand/type will depend on your local conditions and use. Talk to other sailors and the yard. Two gallons for a thirty footer should be about right giving you two coats and three at the waterline.

There is a ton of info that has been written on this subject (and a lot by me), so please search the topics in the database. I for one am not going to answer this question everytime some one asks when the answers are all ready out ther.

Tom, remember that a Barnacle will attach itself to any thing that will let it. That's why every once in a while we need to scrape our bottoms to rid ourselves of them. Just scrape it off.
