Antares_9 Posted March 11, 2008 Share Posted March 11, 2008 Help! Now I've bought a boat you will probably find me screaming for help in here every 5 minutes so be prepared. First question. How much Antifoul will I need to do a 20ft boat? 8-) Normal coverage is about 8 - 10 sq m per litre Sue, I would estimate your bum to be about 6 sq m.(don't you dare anybody) To give 2 to 3 good coats therefore, 2.5l should do you nicely. BTW try to get a pressure wash as she is lifted whilst the current "beard" is still soaked or it will be the devil's own job when it dries. The type of antifouling will depend on where you propose to moor and the salinity present. if you are going to rub the old stuff and coat over it then do a small bit first to make sure the new stuff doesn't fight with the old stuff. Follow the instruction carefully with regard to safety and time to launch after coating. Hooded paper coveralls and irritant mask is the order of the day both during preparation and coating. Like painting anything, preperation is 90% of the job. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
