Applied by roller, brush or spray, the dual-biocide bottom paint contains four lubricants — molybdenum disulfide, polytetrafluoroethylene, graphite and silicon — and can be burnished to a smooth finish that reduces drag, resulting in higher speeds and lower fuel consumption, according to Pettit. $299 (gallon).
