Awesome holiday, and an awesome rib

My dream is to take my own rib there one day
Sorry, I've only just noticed your post; thanks for uploading the photos. I was lucky that day that the boat dried out as it did; two metres off that spot would have been a bit iffy. Let me know if you do want to go to Mt St. M at some point; I'll give you some directions or even come along myself.

coppercoat

Just a quick note to say thank you to those on here that ordered Coppercoat from us this season - please do stay in touch and report your findings. Certainly we are seeing an increase in interest in Coppercoat from RIB owners and it makes a nice change for us to be supplying goods to such craft.

Ewan, how does coppercoat cope with regular trailering?

Coppercoat is a mix of copper metal powder and two-pack epoxy resin, and is the toughest anti-foul available. In fact it's tougher and less porous than gelcoat. This means that it can stand up to the rigours of being lifted out, and certainly will be damaged far less than a conventional anti-foul paint would be in similar use. But, when all is said and done it is only a coating of approximately 0.25 mm in thickness and repeated lifts or stoney beachings will breach the coating eventually.

When an area is finally worn through, simply apply a new patch of Coppercoat. The repair would be localised - you would not need to re-treat the whole boat.

Sorry - I forgot to add this. Coppercoat is not adversely effected by being out of the water. So you could lift your boat out every week and launch it every weekend if you wished. Or you could leave the boat in for 6 months and then have it out for 6 months. Whatever suits you is fine. If you think of it as copper-filled gel-coat you'll have the right idea. So it's not like a conventional anti-foul that oxidises and dies if the boat is taken out for any length of time.

Just a thought ! wonder if copper based coatings have any long term galvanic effect on boat fittings ,outboard legs , props , ect or if theirs any rapid corrosion of sacrificial anodes more than normal. .

how much copper coat would be needed to cover a maxum 2700 scr? 28 foot, and what would price be delivered to wales, sick of anti-fouling every season and having to haul boat out in june to do it again

Hi Telcowilliam,

Sorry for the late reply! (For future reference, the quickest way to obtain a quote is to contact us via www.coppercoat.com or by callign 01258 861059.

But to fully treat a 28ft motorboat you would need about 6 litres of Coppercoat. At the current r.r.p this would be 420 plus delivery and Vat. And all being well this treatment would increase the boats performance slightly, decrease its fuel consumption slightly and continue to work as an anti-foul for approximately a decade.

But if you come to see us at the Southampton Boat Show (stand D005 in the Windward Hall) you could claim a discount!
