Not certain of the brand, but it matched the boat paint. PO said it was good bottom paint. She's been in the water for 16 months. A few bottom cleanings and a power wash this a.m. when we pulled her for the new owner...exceeded my expectations. No blisters, no breaches in the shell, hard, hard paint that was impervious to water. Yes, she's stained but that's because we had a 30 minute wait to power wash her when we pulled her...still looks great for a bottom after all this time/ don't know the brand, just that it was an epoxy...

There aren't very many white bottom paints so that will help you narrow it down. The two most popular are Vivid white and Interlux shark white.

Interlux has a slight grey color to it and almost has a sparkle to it, just like shark skin. It contains cuprous oxide and is not very good for trailerable boats as the cuprous oxide (copper) in the paint will oxidize out of the water and no longer work as an effective anti-fouling.

Vivid white is pure white but has a tendency to slightly discolor in dirty water. It contains no cuprous oxide so it is recommended for trailerable boats. It does not oxidize out of the water so it continues to work as an effective anti-fouling paint even after you take it out of the water for the winter. Vivid also typically has a smooth finish that feels less rough than most bottom paints.

If I had to guess, I would think you had Vivid. It's a great paint and my personal favorite. I have it on my boat.

I went with Micron Ultra, as recommended by their technical dept. Every paint is a best fit.
