New Bottom Paint for the Marauder

We just wanted to give a quick shout out to Steve at Black Point (loggerhead marina) for hooking up the Marauder with a high quality paint job.  It’s clear the team took the time to make sure the job got done professionally and quickly. No wondering, waiting, or hoping the job would get done right – pure confidence from start to finish.

The Marauder of Miami, FL

If you need bottom paint in the Miami area – you absolutely need to call Steve at Black Point Marina (loggerhead). His direct # is 305-216-8174

A variety of anti-fouling paints are available, including some new hotness called Bottom Speed.   It’s a bit more expensive than traditional anti-fouling paint, which we went with on this occasion, but we’ll be checking it out in the near future.  The west side of biscayne bay can put some nasty stuff on your hull, almost the worst i’ve seen – even after boating on the Chesapeake Bay for 2/3 of my life.  After the new paint – we were running 5 knots faster and burning about a gallon and a half less per hour.  Looking forward to an open sea trial this weekend.
