A Guide for DIY antifouling  The decision to do your own antifouling should not be taken lightly. You need to be prepared for whats involved so you don’t have surprises and you get the job done well. It is important to have a clear idea of what you need to do, have all the tools and safety protective gear and of course enough product. Those that are much smarter than I would choose to have the ‘professionals’ take care of the job but I have been doing my own antifouling since 2007. On many of these occassions I have witnessed the ‘professionals’ lift out a boat, waterblast it, roll on a single coat (whilst the boat was still wet) add a bit more to the water line and keel and drop it back in. I was amazed at there speed having one 30ft or so yacht hauled out antifouled and back in the water in a couple of hours. The first thing to consider is location. Many slipways do not allow you to carry out your own work so you will need to make sure the slipway you intend to use will allow it and if they do what days and times you can access it. Some slipways will only give you access on weekends and others weekdays. Your next important decision is choosing your antfoul and quantity, primer needed, antifoul-propspeed or alternative (running gear and props) and dont forget anodes and you should polish (fibreglass boats) at least up to the gunwales while your boat is on the hardstand. When choosing which antifoul to use you must first consider your hull (alluminium would require trilux 33 or similar) its use (high speed, low speed-regullar use) and then decide on a hard antifouling or self polishing (eroding-ablative-polishing) finish. If you have a very fast boat that is used very regularly then hard antifoul is normally choosen Keen racing types sometimes prefer hard products as they can be wet sanded to a smooth finish prior to racing. Self polishing or eroding antifoul paints as there name implies erode away during use which then leaves a fresh protective barrier fighting marine growth and fouling. Traditionally I have used Micron extra on my vessels with great results but Micron66  is the ultimate in antifouling performance and offers the longest protection which I have now switched to. Next you will need to figure how much paint you will require to do at least 2 full coats pluss an extra coat along the waterline, keel and any leading/trailing edges. For a rough estimate of the area to be painted, multiply the length of your hull (LOA) by the beam and multiply by 0.85 (LOA x B x 0.85 = Area). Then divide the area by the coverage of the paint you’ve chosen to determine how many litres per coat you will need. Dont forget to add extra for the waterline, keel, leading/trailing edges and props and running gear if you choose to antifoul these.
