Grey Antifoul

I am thinking of having antifoul on the hull for the first time this year and if at all possible would like to have it in a colour that matches the military grey of the Parker. Any recommendations?
I dont think the Blakes Hard Racing is available in grey.

Don't do it!

Why do you want to antifoul?

You will curse it and then pay a load of money to get it removed and to get the hull repolished!

Cos the boas on the water for 8 months.... and trailing lettuce everywhere a) dont look professional b) cost a fortune in fuel.

Try Veneziani Speedy Carbonium if you can get it or Nautix A4 TSpeed. Spray and burnish preferably.

international trilux comes in loads of colours and grey is one...

also trilux is the only alloy compatable antifoul so you can paint right up to the outboard/leg brackets..

other types need to have a 2 inch gap so to avoid that copper/alloy/steel/zinc mix

Thanks for the ideas.
I am very reluctant to do this, but as she sits in the water for the whole summer, she does pick up alot of growth. As a result, I had her out for at least 4 lifts and scrub downs last year and they cost over 250 each time!
If I can pull it off in time, would like to have her on aqua-dock and then can leave her clean.

Why don't you buy a mask and a scouring pad and take her into shell bay once a fortnight for a quick tickle?
