There is an unadvertised special at the defender warehouse sale. They are selling five skids of petit sr-40 for $40/gal. This is an ablative bottom paint that normally sells for $160.

Only catch is that is deep purple. Woops.

I'm going to use it a base coat. That way I can tell when I need to repaint.

Let's hope so. :mrgreen:

Btw, someone mentioned that if you add some black to it the resulting color will be a deep blue.

I'm just gonna leave it purple though. A real attention getter. :rolleyes:

Of course it will have a green top coat, but hey, why be picky.

Glad it worked out for you. It's really good paint in its own right.

Well, I finally got a warm day and got the first coat on. It's a dark purple, but pretty close to dark blue. I'm going to put a second coat of green over it so I can tell wear patterns better.

If anyone wants what I have left you can have it for what I paid. I probably won't use this color again for several years.

I have about 1.5 gallons (probably a little more). Enough for a 35 foot boat.

$60. You can pick it up either in central mass or pt judith.
