WiHIamc SOME PAINT chipping or peeling away from boat bottoms may contain a pesticide that is lethal to crabs and scientists say. Some scientists suspect the chemical also poses hazards to humans. First of a two-part series. By EFFIE COTTMAN Staff Writer For thousands of a fresh coat of paint means smooth sailing. For the fish and oysters of the Chesapeake it may mean death. Many scientists already believe that a pesticide added to boat paint to kill is lethal to fish and microscopic sea organisms. Some suspect the chemical also poses hazards to humans. other studies con- ducted by the U.S. Navy and chemical companies indicate that paints containing or can be used without detri- mental effects to living re- sources. State and federal researchers believe that the bay which hosts both a bounty of marine life and a growing flotilla of recrea- tional boats will resolve this scientific debate. In the the concern over TBT is spreading. a big potential said Stuart a staff sci- entist for the Chesapeake Bay which has asked members to voluntarily stop using TBT paints. say it's one of the most toxic substances they've Lehman said. France already has banned TBT paints on most recreational while Great Britain and Japan have imposed less strin- gent restrictions on the chemical. The U.S. Environmental Pro- tectional Agency embarked on a special review of the chemical in January to determine if federal regulations are warranted. And Congress this year barred the Navy from using it on ships until more evidence is available. A manmade chemical patented in Britain in TBT has been approved for use in the United State for 30 years. The most toxic of chemical compounds called TBT is marketed in boat paint under such brand names as Tri- Tropic Isle and Colortox. Rolled or brushed on the hull of a boat once a it curbs grass and algae enabling boats to run smoother and require less main- tenance. A third of the to pounds of TBT produced annually in the U.S is added to bottom according to the EPA. The rest is used in wood preservatives and other products. During the past TBT gained a reputation as an effec- tive antf-Amlaat that boats clear of barnacles that slow the vessel and lower fuel efficiency. It's also the oajr paint that can be directly applied on metal hulls. on Page CoL Council rejects City Hall expansion By KEVIN DRAWBAUGH Staff Writer The City Council last night ap- proved an million 1987 The Capital budget for Annapolis but rejected a previously approved million ex- pansion of City Hall.

Alderman John R. R- Ward cast the lone dissenting vote on the package after watching the council narrowly defeat four amend- ments he proposed. His amendments would have es- sentially preserved the The Capital spending program of the previous administration. Hammond wanted to keep funding for the City Hall expansion and for a previously approved million Trux- tun Park recreation center. Both projects are not yet under but were scheduled to be built next year under former Mayor Richard L Hillman's The Capital budget.
