Bottom Paint Survey Results

 2014 Bottom Paint Breakdown

Jamestown Distributors has been researching Antifouling paint for years. This Fall, JD asked their customers to rate the Bottom Paint that they used this season. There was a great response with thousands of boaters providing feedback.

Antifouling is a challenge for all of us and often what works well in one harbor will not work well in another. We have read all of the comments and we have tabulated the results.

PART 4: Specific Paints

    • Our apologies. That was an oversight. Aquaguard received a 2.5 star rating. And you are right that we did not take into account the environmental factors. The newer water-based technology paints have distinct advantages for the environment and from a personal health standpoint.

  1. I used Petit Trinidad SR, and would like to know how many people rated this specific paints. Not knowing how many people rated each paint has me wondering how to view the data presented. Perhaps I was the only one that rated this paint. Who knows? I applaud you efforts.

  3. After having the bottom soda blasted down to the bare gelcoat, we applied ACT.
    We were very happy with the results when we pulled this fall.
    The real test will take place over the next two seasons

  4. I have used JD Select for the last 3 years, in New England. I have had minimal to no growth and my boat is normally in for 8 months. Light sand and re-coat and splash.
