Help! What anti foul do i put on Hypalon?

We are biting the bullet and want to anti foul the rear of our tubes in black anti foul as it gets so much weed over the season.

Does anyone know of the type of anti foul we should use on Hypalon? Brand, price, source etc

We normally use blakes powerboat stuff for the hull. In white.

Hi Paul I put UNO strait on no primer as you can remove it easy at the end of the season as you do not want build up of AF!
Alystra from Ardfern has been doing it for years and it works.
Hope this is of help

Cheers Jambo! Is this it below? Does it not come off as it says up to 25knots.

International Paints Cruiser Uno

One coat antifouling designed for both power (up to 25 knots) and sailing boats.

Single season's antifouling protection.

In most cases there is no need to seal main stream antifouling schemes.

No need to sand before re-coating

3 litre sized pots.

n.b The 3 litre Uno's are heavily discounted and therefore excluded from our 'Bulk Discount' scheme. International Antifouling Compatibility Chart Anyone else use anything?

Yep thats it. It does not come of applied for years no problem. If anything on the tubes you don't want something that you need a blowtorch to take off!

Very sharp.

Normally they just retube or replace the boat. Due to cutbacks in these times of austerity they won't stand it this year, so we have to invest ourselves.
