How Much Paint Do I Need?

Calculate / Approximate the surface area in square metres of of the hull below the waterline. Divide that number by 6. That will give you the number of litres, for a single coat, based on 80-90 microns thick. Double that number to get the total required for two coats. Apply ALL of that colume (even if it takes you several coats). You will then have maximum protection.
