Default Bottom paint unneeded in fresh water

Hi Cate. You do not need anti-fouling bottom paint in fresh water. Unlike the ocean, the lake has no barnicles, mussels or sea grass that grow on your bottom. You will get a thin layer of some type of growth, an algae-like film that will easily wash off with a pressure washer.

So my advice is to do nothing, e.g. leave the existing paint on.
