Now here is a useful tip - When antifouling how many times have you found it difficult to see what bit you have painted because the working edge dries off too quickly. This is made harder when you have to work from each side and have a long working edge. To make life easier, cover the hull with chalk lines at about 12in intervals. As you overpaint the marks you will know roughly where you have been. It only takes a couple of minutes but you will find it a very useful reference.
