Just as today, governments past took advice about science. Isaac Newton gave evidence on solving the longitude problem. Was his advice as counterproductive as many have said?

Can I Reactivate Hard Bottom Paint?

It is generally regarded that after 72 hours of exposure to air, hard bottom paints will oxidize and lose antifouling properties. But some tests are showing otherwise. Here are some general guidelines to reactivate hard bottom paint:

Launching of newly painted boats may be delayed up to 60 days after painting without sacrificing antifouling performance, as long as these guidelines are followed:

• Boats painted between two and 12 months prior to launch date must be scuff-sanded with 220-grit production paper or abrasive pad before launching.

• Boats painted more than 12 months prior to launch date must be lightly sanded with 100-grit production paper and recoated before launching.

• Boats in the water for less than 24 hours should be pressure washed lightly to remove dirt, salt or other contaminants and allowed to dry. These boats should still be considered newly painted and may be launched up to 60 days after the date of painting.

• Boats in the water for more than 24 hours, but less than 30 days, should be pressure washed when hauled, then lightly sanded with 220-grit production paper immediately before re-launching. If necessary, launching may be delayed up to 60 days after the bottom has been sanded. Note: Boats re-launched within 72 hours of haul out do not need to be sanded before launching.

Boats in water for more than 30 days should be pressure washed when hauled, lightly sanded with 100-grit production paper and recoated with antifouling paint, even if re-launching occurs within 72 hours.

If there isn’t enough hard bottom paint on the surface, it could flake off with sanding due to the thin layer.
