Thanks for your comments. I was just told that a formulated barrier coat is stronger than West systems when it comes to cracking and chipping. Does adding the West barrier additive add strengthening properties to it. I ground the keel with 16 and 20 grit, it is fairly smooth to the naked touch but it is in no ways to smooth for epoxying I would think. I am leaning towards using interprotect 2000 instead of the west systems I think. After this is used I'll follow up with West Low density to fill gaps and fair.
