GatorGlide FR, our fresh water fouling release is just that. It is not an ablating paint (I refer to ablating paints as a poison brake shoe or anchor) FR is a release, a super slick waterborne epoxy that when properly applied is very easy to clean and a great place for fouling “not” to grow. It does not have the abrasion properties like our GatorGlide G2 and G4. What it does have is excellent clean-ability, speed increase, fuel saving and protective properties for freshwater boats. FR will benefit any boat on the planet, However if you run in a abrasive atmosphere you will be better served to run the G2 or G4. Open water you want and need the GatorGlide Fouling Release AKA FR.
