Look at the ranges from Blakes and International.

They have some made specifically for those that go beyond MK II.

banny,
i used International antifouling last year,

we live in a heavy fouling area, and the boat is on a drying mooring,

we used International Primocon to seal the old antifouling then 2 coats of Interspeed Ultra for the new antifouling,

our boat tops out at 44kts, we have had NO chipping or peeling, the only weed build up we had was on the top of the trimtabs (stainless steel), which i left unpainted,

hope this helps Andy.

I use Interspeed but as I can only reach 29knots that is not a true test for you! Should be good for 40, it's nice and hard and smooth.

Dave,

when we bought our boat, she had old antifouling that the previous owner had painted, we didn't know what type of antifouling it was or how old it was so decided to use the primocon to give us a good base to start from,

like you all we did was gave a bit of a scrape/sand then painted on the primer 1st day, then the 1st top coat the 2nd day and the final top coat the 3rd day, dry's fairly quickly and covers well,

they recommend 2 coats of Interspeed for the season,

the overcoating times on the tin, based on a temperature of +15c are :-

Primocon 3hrs
Interspeed 10hrs
Immersion min 12hrs, max 3 months,

Andy

They aint trim tabs mate they are short wings, at 44kts you would be breaking the speed limit in many areas, does your boat ever touch the water at that speed? I did 28kts in mine the other week & I thought I was going to have a stroke:giveup:

Hiya,

Stupid question time here.. if the boat is capable of 40knts will any living thing be able to hang on to the hull with that amount of pressure hitting it at even a fraction of that speed ?

Hi Davy holt,its not the speed that the boat does its what it picks up on its swinging mooring,and when they get a hold they really do .As 95% of the year it sits there,on its mooring,surely you understand how they really get a strong grip on the hull,and a blast at 40 knts does not give you a clean hull.I hope that answers your question

I suppose if it's sitting on the mooring for 95% of the time then the growth would get a good grip.

and a blast at 40 knts does not give you a clean hull.I hope that answers your question
That's the bit I don't get.. at 40 knots the water would be hitting the hull at about or more than the pressure from a pressure washer.. I know from past experience how difficult it is to get anything to stick to a hull at even half that speed hence the reason I'm surprised anything can hang on to a hull at 40knts. Around the water line and on trim tabs yes, but the hull I would have thought would be kept pretty clean... but like everything else you live and learn :D
