The first new innovation in racing hull coatings in years is making a lot of noise on the race course; it’s called Eelsnot, it’s totally green and made in the USA, and it’s available now at Latis International. It also works for powerboats, boards – anything you have that needs a smooth hull and protection from critters.
In 2014, Newport’s Will Welles took the 2014 J/24 World Championship using it, and it helped him take the National title as well as big-fleet firsts in the J/70 in Miami and 3rd in Charleston. Here’s what he had to say. We threw everything we could at our eelsnotted bottom during the J/24 Worlds weed sticks, flossing, even a crab pot or two. When we pulled her out of the water she looked exxactly the same as she did when we splahsed her. Eelsnot is fast enough to win a Worlds, and it lasts a full week in the water like nothing I’ve used. Get some.
