So my volvo penta shop manual says specifically not to use copper oxide bottom paint. The store I went to recommended cyprus oxide (same thing?). The shop manual did not say why I shouldn't use copper, so it may have been because of the environmental impacts.
This is for a commercial gillnet boat, so I want to use the good stuff. Does anybody know why the shop manual (volvo) would recommend against using a copper oxide bottom paint? Is there any reason why I shouldn't use this stuff recommended by the professional mariners?
Thanks in advance,
