British Marine, along with the British Coatings Federation (BCF) and Royal Yachting Association (RYA), today (Sunday 8 January 2017) kicked off the new joint DIY Safe Anti-fouling Initiative with a public launch event at the London Boat Show 2017.

The London Boat Show’s visitors will be able to learn from this awareness scheme the hazards associated with antifouling their boats. The scheme also details the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required to ensure that antifouling (AF) paints are being used properly.
