In the beginning of the 2012 season a new bottom paint was applied to a Donzi Daytona 35’ on the southern coast of California. The paint, HullSpeed® 3000, is designed to improve speed, fuel economy and ease of hull cleaning. Mission accomplished. Captain / Owner Eric Stahl of Wide Open Fishing Tours had this to say,
“Our season went good, one of the best in years. The HullSpeed® application went on great and the product was really easy to work with and easy to clean up. Everything was diluted and cleaned with water, a nice change from traditional solvent based paints. I noticed about an 8% fuel economy increase and a 10% increase in overall speed. The product performed great and did everything we were expecting. I would highly recommend HullSpeed® products.”
