Hello Seabreezers! I'm currently in the process of antifouling my tophat 25... I've bought myself 4L of Altex 5 and I intend on putting 3 coats on... Trouble is I've put one coat on and I'm over a third of a tin into my supply... Its $230 for another 4L and I'll only use a small quantity so no point buying a new can!

Does anyone have 1 or 2L they would be prepared to sell me? OR does anyone know a shipwright who would sell me a litre or two?

I'm in Woodford Bay, happy to travel lower northshore, I work in Darlinghurst....

Let me know your thoughts!

You wont use so much paint with the second coat.

Good tip thanks Ramona! The boat already has a thick base from its last slip so 4L will hopefully do the trick!

After the second coat. Paint the leading edges and the waterline first with the 3rd coat in case you run short.
