A very effective bottom paint for the Great Lakes. – David B.
Compromise between more ablative and full hard paint for your hull. – Bert R.
I haven’t used the paint yet but I expect it will live up to its reputation. – Tom Z.
The best paint.
We first used Pettit Trinidad Pro on my sail boat in 2014. Now in 2021 a full 7 years later we have to repaint. Probably should have repainted last year but regardless of 7 years or only 6 years of effective coverage its amazing. Virtually no bottom growth for 6 years – WOW. This would be my permanent choice for bottom paint if Pettit were not finally giving up the fight. – Michael H
The delivery was fast but the gallon can was badly damaged due to the weight of the product inside. Nothing wrong with the contents and the package did have a red warning label Do Not Drop. Can’t blame the store, just the shipper. – Robert K
Used before it’s great.
Went on thin but easily. Definitely needs two coats as the sanding/buffing to bring out the best in the product was worn through on edges/thin spots. Seems very slick….first time trying this one.
I will know more later in the summer and beyond. I am hopeful that it is as good it sounds. I tried a roll and tip method for applying the two coats of paint, and it sets up too quickly for that, so I think it would be applied better by either roller or brush alone.
I love this paint. This is my fifth year, and only have had to do some touch up on the boat bottom. Excellent. – Fran Z.
Love this product have used it many times before on several cruisers and fast boats always greatly impressed with the outcome.
