Pettit Old Salem Copper Bronze Hard Racing Non-Antifouling Marine Paint

Quart

Pettit Old Salem is recommended for use in fresh water on racing hulls, sailboats, runabouts or cruisers. It is a non-antifouling hard racing finish that can be buffed to give a high-gloss, ultra-smooth surface. It can be used in saltwater for small, dry sailed boats which are not left in the water. Hard Racing Copper Bronze may be applied over most aged hard racing non-antifouling coatings. If the old paint type is unknown, sand a small area and apply a test patch of Hard Racing Copper Bronze to test its compatibility with the old paint.
