Western Prince II, which provides whale and wildlife tours in Friday Harbor, is getting a coat of ePaint for the third year. The owner had great success during the previous two years with this environmentally friendly paint. Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op has been using ePaint successfully now for several years, on all types of vessels. The new laws banning copper-based paint for recreational boats in Washington go into effect in January of 2018. To read more about Shipwright Co-op’s experience with ePaint, refer to our blog article last year: Copper-free Paint Solution.
