      Does everybody still like the copper resin anti-foul and resinstore in particular.  I put a sacrificial anti-foul on Mary last year and what hadn’t warn off was removed by the marina when she was washed down.

      Towards the end she was getting a bit rough underneath.  There is one patch on the keel strip that looks “eaten” should I cut that out.  It may just be scratches but it looks a little too wormy.

      I assume the process will be to smooth the hull down.  It has been treated with west system resin.  Making sure it is clean then prime with their safeguard primer then to apply the copperplus.  So how much will I need?  If somebody else has done the comparative maths does resinstore with discount still add up.

      Ive used copper anti foul and think its worth it just for the fact that you dont have to reapply each year as for how much you need the manufacturers will work that out for you if you give them some dimensions make sure you apply as per their instructions and rub down to activate it before launch.

      How much coverage will I need.  As I have to send it Bosa I can’t just get a bit more.  I figure on about 10 square meters.  Am I right?
