Default Micron CSC, effectiveness over winter storage???????????

I bought a boat in August 2018 that had never been bottom painted. I paid to have it professionally bottom painted with Micron CSC largely because I was told that paint could be hauled for this winters storage on land and returned to the water for the 2019 season without issue. While I can't be positive, it appears they did a quality job with several coats of barrier, then several coats of Micron CSC. The marina the boat is at insists this paint won't be effective by the time it's returned to the water. Truth???

FWIW: The boat is kept in salt water on the Chesapeake bay (Deltaville/Windmill Pt).

On the West Marine site


Boats painted with Micron CSC can also be hauled, stored and relaunched without a loss of antifouling effectiveness—which means you can paint in the fall and splash in the spring!

Also I believe its a multi season paint. If there is any white chalk in the spring a light power wash to remove and your good to go.

Thanks, I had found that on the West Marine site which is why I chose that paint in August........but unlike the TV commercial, I don't believe everything I read on the internet LOL

You’ll be good to go in spring. I don’t use CSC but micron extra which is close to the same and also multi season and other than a few touch ups I get two full seasons.
good luck

My CSC did fine hauling for an extended period but for what it’s worth... did Extra on my last haul over CSC before selling and I’m pretty sure most of the extra was gone in 6 months. Same slip, same diver, very reputable yard did the work.

Glad i I sold her cause I would have been doing another bottom job.

I've been using it for years and always get multi seasons, I have a different color base coat and when it shows I paint it again, Interlux rep told me to do it that way.

I really don't get that. Copper is copper. It has copper in it, right? And it's ablative, which means it can't really harden over somehow and make the copper unavailable.

I get that the traditional wood boat copper paint stayed soft and if it hardened it might not be as toxic to the critters that try to attach. But this isn't that.

I use the Micron Extra on my bow rider, and some years I just do the water line and bare spots, and some years I go over the whole thing. I see no evidence on haul out that it makes a difference one way or the other.

It's fine over the winter. I used csc for 8 years before switching to micron cf. I'd give it a full scuff and paint every other year and just touch up in the off years where needed. It's a really good paint.

You will be fine. I had a project boat that I jumped the gun on painting the bottom. Used CSC only because a friend had some left over and gave it to me. The boat didn’t see water for over a year. I thought it might be a problem but just wanted to finally use the boat. When it was hauled the end of the following season it was clean. I’ve used CSC on every bottom since, worth the extra money.

Sounds like the marina is looking for some spring painting work
