Bottom Job: What's the reel truth?
BOTTOM JOB: WHAT'S THE REEL TRUTH?
By: Alecia Coleman, Service Advisor
We choose Sea Hawk. As a professional in the boating industry I am often asked, "Why do you choose Sea Hawk for your bottom jobs?". The decision is simple, really. The biggest downfall is that most people don't know what to look for when choosing bottom paint. Sea Hawk Biocop TF™ was developed as an alternative to tin-based paints.
Why is this important? Once known as the leading bottom paint, tin-based paints were banned due to its harmful effects to the environment, no matter the water type. After tin-based paints (once the industry leader), were banned in the United States, copper-based alternatives became the frontrunner. Compared to its competitors, Sea Hawk paints have a harder, self-polishing finish, and its active ingredients are known to preserve the quality of the hull bottom…not mention, the extensive color palate available to choose from.
Not only is Sea Hawk a safer alternative for the environment, but also for those applying the product. It has a milder odor, making it more favorable in the application process. Sea Hawk Biocop is made in America and has been in business for over 30 years.
