SAN DIEGO — Boaters who are considering making the switch from copper hull paints to more environmentally friendly coatings will want to attend the Port of San Diego’s Eco-Friendly Hull Paint Expo, March 16.
Boat owners who are interested in learning more about environmentally safe hull paints can get information of the various types available and what it takes to apply them, at the upcoming Expo, scheduled from 10 a.m.-noon March 16 at Shelter Island Boatyard, 2330 Shelter Island Drive.
This is the port’s second Eco-Friendly Hull Paint Expo, with the first being held in April 2012. The event is intended to provide recreational boaters with information on paints that protect a boat’s hull while also reducing environmental impact.
