bottom paint for aluminum boat

Steve, I have a Lavranos-designed aluminum 13M cutter. The bottom has 6 coats of Interlux 2000e epoxy barrier and a couple of coats of Interlux “trilux 33” bottom paint. What brand of bottom paint do you use in warm climates. Thanks.

We use an Ameron commercial product that has worked quite well. If you use the search function you should be able to find the specifications on SetSail. Be sure to check the compatibility of your existing system. We  used an Ameron tie coat between the original bottom paint and the Ameron product.

    I am trying to find Ameron products in Europe, with no success. Can you please advise? Thanks

    Hi Vassilis:
    Berthon’s boat yard in Lymington, UK, found the same materials for some touch up on Wind Horse. But I do not have any suggestions, other than to go to the Ameron website and look for local distribution. You could always order through a US distributor as well.
