Is Vinyl Antifoul better over Epoxy Barrier Coat

I have recently stripped all the antifoul paint off my Irwin 34 (down to white gelcoat). I was planning on using standard barrier coat (Interlux Interprotect 2000E) then Trinidad Antifoul. A blister repair guy strongly recommended using an epoxy called Bars Rust as a barrier coat then apply Woolsey Vinylast while wet - suggesting Bars Rust was much more durable and the vinyl paint would adhear better to the epoxy. Once dry, he said he would then apply then the Trinidad. Can any one plse comment ??? ie..sound Ok??? The boat will be sailed in salt water.
