The Pitfalls of Eco-nice Antifouling
As much as I enjoy messing around with boats, the job of prepping a hull and applying antifouling paint is one I could live without. A do-it-yourself paint job is not as loathsome as it used to be, but its still one of my least favorite tasks. In recent years, paint makers have begun adding a range of water-based antifouling paints to their lineups. These new paints eliminate most or all of the strong solvents that make painting unpleasant and that, over time, can be harmful to our health and the environment.
