Harder Ablative Anti-fouling Bottom Paint
 Jack Jones (the inventor) often said, "No matter how much cardboard I laid down
while painting my boat in April, I always got up with a wet back. I formulated
'Shipbottom' so I could skip painting for a season or two."

Jack passed without really knowing that his formula exceeded his desire 2 seasons
and could go three 6 month seasons because it doesn't die out of the water!

He wasn't a great marketer and the name proved it, 'Shipbottom Bottom Paint'? He was in his 70's when
I met him at the Tampa Boat Show. His booth was constructed from refuse he found in his garage and a
lighted scrolling sign that was going by so quickly that I, nor anyone else, could read it.

There they were, Jack and Dodie Jones. She was knitting and he was eating Sardines out of a
can with Saltine crackers, which made him very unpopular with his booth neighbors.

“Don't get up,” I said, "I don't want to interrupt your lunch.” And he didn't! I waited until the last stinky fish
had been consumed before he would tell me about his paint. He used technical names and industry terms that
would confuse most boaters but I understood and came to believe he had a good product.

Jack gave me a gallon of red. He hadn't sold any and probably wouldn't. I was a working Marine Manufacturers
Rep and promised to test the paint on my boat. If it worked, I'd become his southeast representative. A month
later I hauled my boat and put Trinidad (my favorite up to that point) on most of the boat. I put the 'Shipbottom'
paint on the stern quarter and launched the boat in mid-May.

When I hauled the boat in September, everything was a little slimy but there wasn't a barnacle on either
paint. 'Shipbottom' was at least as good as 'Trinidad' so I never looked back. Jack passed away in 1992 and
his son took over production for a year. When I started making 'Shipbottom' in 1994 I added the word 'Super'
because it was super.

I had visions of selling the company to a big conglomerate but Jack hadn't formulated 'Shipbottom' for them.
It is a very hard paint to make (11 ingredients) but through negotiations with them, they learned how effective it
is and that is why they market so aggressively against us. So like the proverbial frog, we just keep bumping along.
