Antifoul Coverage Information
How much antifouling paint do I need?
- Work out the area to be painted, using the appropriate formulation (below).
- Divide the area by the coverage of the paint you’ve chosen, to determine how many litres per coat you will need.
- Multiply the litres per coat by the number of coats, to give your total paint requirement.
LWL = Waterline Length; B = Beam; D= Draft
For a fin keeled craft (right) the underwater Area = 0.50 x LWL x (B + D) m2
For a medium draft craft (left) the underwater Area = 0.75 x LWL x (B + D) m2
