5 years between slipping

This beautiful timber hull hasn’t been slipped for 5 years.  We were dreading seeing the damage from the worms.  The Altex anti-fouling usually lasts 18 months to 2 years at best but it seems miracles do happen.  The boat had been stored in the water on a pontoon in a canal with no through flow of water and no timber around her.  When she came out you can see the growth of barnacles and weed etc but NO worm damage at all.

This is great news for everyone.  The owner was over the moon but for Altex Paint it is a great advertisement for their anti-fouling.  Our yard has always stocked and used this product and naturally believed it was a great anti-foul.  The proof is now in the pudding.
