When in doubt, as the vendor!

Not sure why I didn't do this sooner, but I sent an email to Interlux asking them... Here's the reply:

"You have 60 days out of the water in which you will then want to submerge the VC 17. Otherwise it could oxidize and lose its antifouling properties and need to be recoated.

You will not want to hot coat the VC 17 over the last coat of Interprotect 2000E. With Vinyl type products like VC 17, you will want to wait 24 hours and scuff sand the last coat with 180-220 grit sand paper. Clean and then apply. "

This may be the only recorded authoritative answer to this question anywhere on the Internet Hope it will help someone else down the road...
