Hi all, anyone use the Gael Force antifoul? Not sure what to go for looking for 2.5 ltr.
I to stick to what it to say Bill. Something to happen that deactivates the antifoul when it to be out of water for maximum effect to stick to what the tin to say. No harm to do it now then to light (wet) sand and add another coat the day before she to go in.Hi,some of the Antifoul I've looked at says the boat should be put in the water within 2 weeks, I can't be sure of that, does it make much difference?

Depends on how long you intend to keep the boat. I did my Arvor 730 six years ago.What do you mean by a bare Hull?? There hasn't been any Antifoul on it before.
Do you not have to sell your children to afford Coppercoat???
Ove got copper coat. Been on there for many years and keeps on working… I recommend it. No need to remove and start again, just add a coat on top when neededAs I said if the boat hull is clean it's worth considering, my boat is in NW Cumbria, and quite a few boats in the marina are copper coated and I have never heard any complaints but heard plenty from people about being laid under their boat in cr*p spring weather with traditional antifoul.
It was on the boat when I got it, hopefully last another year and then I think I’ll freshen it up…Defo get the pros in though!Yes definitely, but it can't be applied over traditional antifoul, it needs stripping off (usually soda blasting) and then coppercoat primer applying under temp controlled conditions 👍
