Title: Anti-fouling paint
Post by: CJK on July 07, 2019, 05:54:42 PM
Have read quite a few references on here about using Halfords red primer to simulate anti-fouling paint on the bottom of hulls, could someone please advise if this is the right stuff -

Many thanks

But, as Dave will confirm, you should seal it after application. The Halfords Matt or Satin lacquers are very good.
