El Capitans.. I am having my 264 coated in bottom paint and have narrowed it down between Interlux VC-17 and Pettit Vivid (please no religious debate on whether to paint or not paint) I wet slip in the Milwaukee River from May-Oct. Last season was the first season for the 264 – trailer princess prior. The ‘fresh’ water is HIGHLY-organic and despite regular in-water scrubbing, by Oct the south facing side was covered in a thick coat of green fur. An acid wash later and the fur was gone, minus some minor staining. More concerning, the acid wash revealed a handful of small blister, soo time to lock it down. I have no concerns over sacrificing a mph or two off of top-end, my priority is resistance to fouling, durability & longevity. VC-17 feels like the gold standard to me, Vivid is attractive on account I can color match the hull or to my grey band and mimic the ‘stealth’ option avl on the 2018’s. Again my priority is resistance to fouling, durability & longevity. Thoughts??
