Bottom Paint — Our Fleet Captain Makes His Choice for Racing and Cruising Performance!

It isn’t often that I decide to endorse a product, but with Spring upon us and our thoughts on preparing our C&C’s for the season ahead, I wanted to share my thoughts on a bottom paint which was my choice for last year and this year: Aquagard.

What are my standards for judging a good bottom paint? Application, anti-fouling properties, color and price. Aquagard is without doubt, the easiest paint I’ve ever applied. It goes on smoothly and your boat needs little to no preparation (most cases, a light sanding using 80 sandpaper.) It has no fumes, and it can be applied indoors.

Aquagard is also water-based. Simply put, the boat will clean itself as you move through the water. Cleaning can usually be done with a quick wipe while you’re at the mooring or dock.

Best feature, which is hard to find in any bottom paint, is that it comes in Shark White (you can also choose from seven other colors.) This not only makes the boat look good, but it is incredibly easy to clean while in the water. Any growth or dirt is easy to spot.
