Barrier coating

747 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  MakoMatt
A buddy of mine is preparing his boat (an older Grady) boat for a new application of bottom paint..He is going to go with a high quality ablative
paint. About 75% of his hull is down to
the gelcoat with maybe a deep nick here
and there. Is a coat of barrier coat on
the bare stuff a good idea???

Because the hull bottom isn't the only place that water can get into the hull. It can also enter via the bilge. In other words From the inside of the boat.

I agree 100%. This fact isoften and can cause trouble.
