Default Sea Hawk Ablative Bottom Paint

I need to do a bottom job on a Carver I recently bought. I have been thinking about the Sea Hawk ablative paint because of the high level of cuprous oxide. Has anyone used it and how well does it work in salt water? The boat is on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Any feedback would be appreciated.

They make a great product. I would use the Cukote for your application.

The Sea Hawk Monterey works good up here in the northeast.

After having the bottom Soda Blasted and barrier coated 4 years ago, we applied Sea Hawk Cukote. I couldn't be happier with the results. Very good anti fouling protection with minimal touch up required year after year. I'm in the Northeast.

Been using Seahawk Biocop TF in the FL Keys for many years, very happy with the product.
