I've seen some very good results with this, Parts of my searider were painted black with hypalon paint from inflatable boat supplies and looked rerally good and did so for a long time

Rogue if that was black paint on the front of your searider then I'm impressed. I always thought it was rubber or hypalon. Good Stuff.

You can buy it in Shamrock Quay - http://www.vzyachting.co.uk/da/17379

I used some of the antifoul on the in water tubes. Looked smart and was easy to apply. Don't use a sponge roller as it comes apart.

I got a new paint on order which is Italian - Can't rembember the name but the finish is amazing. Literally you would never know that the surface had been painted - I'll dig out the catalogue
