Default Salt water boat...

But as I scrubbed... I noticed what seemed like bottom paint coming off..
"So I stopped"

As I'm very new to all this... Can someone chime in on how much the bottom cleaning, and maintenance/painting of my boat is going to cost me out of the water
Hull paint for salt water is often designed to come off somewhat easily. It prevents barnacles from attaching for one reason.
