Just want some input on bottom paint. I have a 21' Bay Boat and am considering bottom paint. I live on the water with a lift but at low tide I cant get my boats off the lift. Just thinking it would be easier to leave in the water a few more days at times. Thanks for the input.

i personally don't think it would be a problem if it is only for a couple of days. I do know that it doesn't take much more then a few days for the barnacles to start growing. I would be sure to wash the bottom when you put the boat back on the lift. Just my opinion and there are a lot smarter folks about this subject then me on here.

Pull and clean thoroughly as needed. Bottom paint if you plan on leaving boat in water for extended periods...especially in the summer months. Once you start the bottom paint process be prepared to redo it every 2 to 3 years. I do my own and it is time consuming but worth it.

That didn't take long, as I knew it wouldn't, great deal for new Owner.
NOW, time to go shopping for that Offshore Replacement! My new neighbor just east of me has a new 34 Freeman, nice setup.

If you use ablative, it wears off and about every other year if in the water full time, you need to power wash most of it off and put new on. That way if you decide you do not want it anymore you can get rid of most of it with a power washer.
