- May 8, 2017Hi all.When I own Juliet my beloved Privateer 20. I painted the bottom with Crown outdoor paint from B&Q. Very cheap. Not a good anti foul. I kept her on a drying out mooring at Christchurch and after 6 months I had some weed growing on the bottom. But it just power washed off. The boat is fibreglass it isn't going to rot away. Honestly try a good quality outdoor paint if you are leaving your boat on a trailer. Spend your hard earned money on something without the word Marine in it. It's a con. Lol.Having said all that the 2nd year I did put an anti foul on as I wasn't going to take her out the water for a long time. As it ended up I sold her a couple of months later and bought a much bigger boat. I do miss my little privateer 20. Everything was so much more simple then.John Turner
