Practical Sailor Tests Paint Preservers
We’ve touched up our varnish, slapped antifouling on the hull and, brightened that bootstripe. Now what to do with those half-full coatings cans? Its not too late to save some bucks next season by making sure the cans won’t skin over or go clumpy. The trick is to chase out the oxygen. We could dump marbles into the can to fill up the remaining air space or transfer the contents to a smaller can from the local paint supplier. Instead, following a suggestion from several readers, this year, we pumped our half-empty cans of finish with Bloxygen.
