Folder Alternative Hull Paint Study

The Environmental Protection Agency provided funding for the Port of San Diego to conduct a study which evaluated a variety of alternative hull paints. Twenty-one of these paints performed well when compared to copper hull paints and 11 were further tested in real-life scenarios on boats. The study concluded that alternative hull paints are environmentally-friendly, work well and can save money over the long-term because they last longer than copper hull paints.
