Many people seem to have had difficulties with SafeboatSkin® or more importantly, its application ..
SafeboatSkin® is a wax alternative to antifouling which MUST be
applied as THIN as possible for best results .
It is a protein and polymer base which has the same adhesion as
paint and when wet creates a biomass which prevents growth adhering
directly to the hull ,tubes ,even the engine.
Growth cannot adhere to this biomass when there is any friction between
it and the water, much like any of us standing on ice .
For best results 4 VERY THIN layers should be applied leaving 30 mins
drying time between layers and 8 hours before launching.
There is no min/max time after 8 hours within which the boat has to be
To clarify ,SafeboatSkin® cannot be applied thinly enough.
Because it reduces the friction between the hull and salt/fresh water it
makes for a much smoother ride especially in rough weather when ribs are
inclined to "bite in " when landing after coming off the crest of a wave.
This reduction in friction also increases fuel efficency .
SafeSpeedSkin® is an ideal product for jetskis or performance craft
which are recovered after use.
Hopefully this might clarify any issues people may have had .
