I just wanted to share with CSR about my new bottom paint I applied to my boat this last fall. I put Zyrex bottom paint on which is an epoxy paint. It has an extremely low surface area (slick as sh#@) so nothing can adhere to it. If slim grows you just go over 10mph to clean the bottom. Zyrex advertised that it would increase your gas mileage and speed. Here are the results so far: 1.The boat literally jumps out of the hole like I have never seen. 2. Top speed increased from 31-37mph 3. Idle speed is faster, I had to retrain myself for maneuvering in marina. 4. Cruising speed at 3600rpm used to be under 20-21mph, is now 25-26mph. Before we splashed the boat, they were moving my trailer/boat in the boat yard and my boat slid on the trailer :wow:. We made sure to strap down really well before splashing. I am still researching so will keep you up-to-date as it sits in the water. So far, no sign of growth (1 month wet). I have been really excited at the performance increase. Here is a picture of the bottom paint.
