Working with Boaters and Marine Trades for Cleaner Washington Water

Don’t Assume!

Don’t assume, it makes an a…donkey out of you and me.  Just because a yard offers copper free paint, that doesn’t mean that is what they are putting on your boat.  I was talking to a boat owner the other day asking what type of paint they were going to use on their boat.  He assumed copper free since there was a copper phase out poster in the office.  Not the case though, this yard (as do many) goes with whatever was on the bottom before.  A fair choice by the yard as the path of least resistance can mean continued sales. The point? Boaters, be sure to ask for copper free paint when you haul out.
