    Planning on wet storing aluminum hull in Florida.( High speed Cat) that is frequently trailered.Hull (including wet surfaces are awlgripped) planning an epoxy barrier/tie coat, but I am afraid of copper thiocyanates likje Vivid.
    Does anyone have any experience with E Paint?

    I recommend you talk to Seahawk Paints in Clearwater Florida 800-528-0997. They make very good high end bottom paint. They seem very knowlwdgable about what will work for many different applications.

    E paint has been working good in the PacNW. Don't know about tropical waters.
