Shopping for Safer Boat Care: 97 Health and Environmental Ratings

Article number: 13178

More than 100 product reports in 12 categories, including bottom paints, hull/deck coatings, varnishes, adhesives and sealants, cleaners, refrigerants, and others. Each product report includes five ratings (disposabililty; flammability; health; ozone depletion; reactivity), a combined rating, a brief narrative, and special notes. Each category gets an introductory essay describing recent and future developments and, in qualitative terms, the relative effectiveness of competing product formulations. However, the book will not be the boatowner's primary source of information on effectiveness.
