Just looking for info on what bottom paint is best for the hull of my Pacific 23 as it's going into a slip for the first time. :thumbsup:

I've been testing a bunch of aluminum friendly bottom paints last few years, some that were good in the past are now not so great. A fairly new paint that did well in my full season test last year is Seahawk Colorkote.

Chaps,
how does the Colorcote compare with Pacifica Plus or Trilux 33 ?

Thanks
