Re: Green anti-fouling paint used at Rosyth ca. 1918
When researching MAINE (ACR1), I discovered that during her last refit in December 1897 (just before leaving for Cuba), her bottom was painted "McInnis Green", an experimental anti-fouling paint. Up until this time, her bottom was the standard red anti-fouling. I wonder if there is any relationship between the MAINE green and that used at Rosyth 20 years later?
