CLEARWATER, Fla. – Feb. 1, 2016 – Today Sea Hawk, the world’s leading premium nautical coating brand, announced the introduction of VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish, a revolutionary new bottom coating geared specifically for fresh water sail boaters and power boaters looking to enhance the performance of their vessels. VMG, earning its designation from the yacht racing acronym for Velocity Made Good, is specifically formulated and crafted to provide fresh water boaters with an added edge in maximizing velocity while protecting their vessels hulls. Enhanced with PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish exhibits one of the lowest coefficients of friction while its copper-free formulation ensures colors stay vivid and true over time. Compatibility with older fresh water bottom coatings enables boaters to apply VMG directly over Interlux VC17 and Pettit SR-21 without stripping their hulls.

Packaged in quarts with an alloy powder additive, VMG goes on easily and dries quickly. Under normal conditions VMG can last up to three years and works equally well on vessels that are kept in and out of water. Because VMG contains no copper its colors stay bright and true. VMG is available in Jet Black, Red, Gun Metal Gray, Blue and Bronze colors and can be purchased through discerning Sea Hawk authorized distributors and retailers worldwide.
