Is Vinyl Antifoul better over Epoxy Barrier Coat

The Bar Rust that was refered to is an Ameron-Devoe Epoxy Barrier coating [Bar Rust 235] that is used extensively on Ships. It is a very good product [personal experience] that according to the manufacture can be used on GRP. Here in the PNW we find Commerical Fishermen [GRP and Steel]using it and being satisfied. It is very hard when cured along with the other epoxy benefits. It costs about $45 a gallon and comes in various colours. Surface prep is as with any barrier coat job. Good Luck
