New Season, New Bottom Paint!


Around these New England parts, Mother Nature can’t decide what season it should be. The calendar says winter, but it’s felt a whole lot more like summer for the past week. And with summer temps and sun, come dreams of boating. Ah, boating dreams are the best because, typically, they skip right over the commissioning To-Do list and get right to the fun part. And in reality most boat to-do lists can be a whole spring season of prep and paint and varnish and sweat. And top of the list is typically “paint the bottom…” And we know how fun that can be.

To take the guesswork out of choosing the right bottom paint for your boat and harbor, we have spent lots of time working with all of our own TB bottom paints and most of the top selling paints we sell. And there is a lot to consider when choosing the right bottom paint, so we thought we would help you out!

With the arrival of the 2016 boat prep season, comes a brand new bottom paint from TotalBoat. Introducing Keelhauler. Born from our Summer 2015 bottom paint testing (read about our testing here – and watch for upcoming results analysis coming soon!). Keelhauler is a recent addition to the TotalBoat Bottom Paint lineup after it’s performance was rated “Excellent” in the 2015 Bottom Paint Test conducted by Roger Williams University Marine Science students.

TotalBoat KeelHauler Ablative Antifouling Bottom Paint provides proven, season-long protection against algae, barnacles and other hard and soft marine biofouling organisms. Its ablative formula releases KeelHauler’s potent 38% copper load at a controlled rate throughout the season, minimizing paint build-up and reducing the need for sanding.

Compatible over most other antifouling paints, KeelHauler is ideal for fiberglass, steel, and wooden boats.
