Gary, I have used velcro before, glued one piece to the rubbing strake were it didn't show and the other to the cover.

Some velcro sticks nicely with 2402 but other types don't. I can't identify one over the other but it might be worth buying a wee bit and trying it before committing yourself to a couple of metres.

Hi Robert

I used a epoxy based Coppercoat.

Have read mixed reports aboiut it and it was expensive, but once done thats it fir 10 years plus.

Did it, and after 9 months their is zero growth so it looks like it works for me.

Did not do the outdrive which needs cleaning off every month or two. May antifoul this next summer.

Regards Gary
