Re: bottom

Thanx, so no gelcoat under the waterline. And best not to start grinding non-damaged areas.


Barriercoat is normally only used under water right ?

I also want to redo the above water parts, (topsides, deck, cockpit) either with paint or with gelcoat. Above water, there is damage, but its rather minimal, a few tiny scratches that i will fill. Now i was thinking the gelcoat is both cheaper (30$ vs 100$ a galon) and stronger than paint and intended to apply that. Am i right or is gelcoat not a good idea ? I should have a spray gun available for either. I will also be including some antiskid in it. I am not yet entirely sure what that is gonna be. If i find a good product available for a reasonable price ill buy it, else i intent to use the finest sand i can find.
