Barrier coating and antifoul alternatives
I have a few questions regarding bottom paint/barrier
coat application alternatives for fiberglass boats in general and the San Juan
23 in particular.
Has anyone heard of a Clark Boat Co. vessel having
problems with below-the-waterline osmotic blisters? Anyone experienced it
themselves? Anybody have thoughts or experience with after-market
epoxy barrier coating? I am not experiencing any problems but am
preparing Saffron for Spring launching and would consider taking
the extra time and expense of applying a barrier coat prior to applying an
antifoul if such was warranted.
Also, and this relates to both potential osmotic
blistering and antifoul: Anyone keep their boat in the water all
year? Maybe six months at a shot? Especially you NW boaters that
sail the Puget Sound: Any advice on the best antifoul paint for a six
month stay on the Sound?
