VC 17m Antifouling - Quart

VC 17m is VC's world-famous innovation in the field of drag reduction antifouling. Ideal for racing and cruising boats

The original antifouling with "non-stick" technology.

Metallic copper powder is added to VC 17m's thin fluoro micro additive film to create a hard, super-smooth antifouling coating. Its fluoro micro additive-based film shrugs off marine growth, and the exceptional surface smoothness means boat speed can actually increase.

Suitable for use in freshwater or low fouling cold saltwater. It is not recommended in difficult fouling areas.

When applied, VC17m will immediately give a thin super smooth "slip" finish that would typically take days of sanding to achieve. When it's time to recoat VC17m, no sanding is required. Just wash with fresh water, let dry and reapply VC17m.

VC17m goes on eight times thinner than traditional antifouling paint which virtually eliminates film buildup. It can be applied to underwater surfaces on properly prepared fiberglass, wood and metal boat hulls. (except Aluminum)

The approximate coverage area is 80 square feet per quart with an application by Roller. The drying time is between 5 and 10 minutes. (Not for application by brush or spray.)

Three coats are recommended for Low Fouling Saltwater areas the first season, with two coats per season after. For Fresh Water applications, it's recommended to apply two coats the first season, with one coat per season in the years following.

Great stuff. annual Maintenance is the best thing about this paint. A very quick sand with 220-320 and apply the paint. Nothing to do afterwards. Takes about 20 minutes to sand the boat and maybe 2-3 hours of painting each spring.

It's getting pricey. I used 5 quarts on my 30 foot Catalina.

VC has always been the choice for freshwater antifouling in our area. It is easily applied and good value.

It is best done on a cool day becasue it evaporates quickly.

I would recommend this product

VC 17M May 05, 2010
Reviewer: 4 to 9 is sail time from New Brunswick
Best features: There is no build up of paint on the hull.

Negative: There are few paints that you can apply over it. While it works relatively well as an antifouling, I believe that Interlux make other paints that are better for use in salt water.

Would I recommend it? Probably for the great lakes, but not for Atlantic Canada.
