The Medway (or as it’s known locally, The Mudway!) is a notoriously bad area in the UK for marine fouling. The following picture was posted on a well known yachting forum. It is rare to have Coppercoat™ tested against a traditional antifoul on the same boat. By the way, Coppercoat™ is the clean product on the keel not the barnacle covered blue product on the hull…!

|Coppercoat vs Conventional Anti Foul
My keel and rudder have Coppercoat & the hull xxxxx (a conventional antifoul) so it makes for an interesting comparison after a season on the Medway (without a mid season clean).
I’ve jet washed the mud and slime off and there was no weed. Some of the barnacles were removed with the jet wash, but the majority wait for the scraper.

Having been supplying Coppercoat™ for almost 20 years, it is increasingly common for us to hear from customers from our “early days”. Whilst we have already published information on boats treated nearly 20 years ago, we were still delighted with the following email recently received from the owner of a Heavenly Twins Catamaran entering its 15th year with Coppercoat™:

I have attached some pictures of our “Summer Twins” catamaran which we antifouled with “Coppercoat™”, supplied by yourselves, 14 years ago. Since then she has had an occasional scrub on a local sand bank but has never been hauled outÂ until now. We have had to haul out this year for other maintenance work, otherwise there would have been no need to haul out.
At todays prices, choosing Coppercoat™ has cost Andy approximately 13p per day. If he had chosen a conventional antifoul, spending around £400 per year on a lift and re-antifoul (not to mention the hard work of having to paint the boat each year!) which equates to £1.08 per day over the same time period. Proving once again that Coppercoat™ provides unbeatable value for money!
Below are the pictures Andy sent us, showing his Coppercoated boat.
