2012 Oceanis 45 Epoxy barrier coat
Nearing the completion time of my new boat. It is my desire to have a epoxy barrier coat applied to the new hull. Getting some push back from the dealer stating that the sanding of the hull required by epoxy barrier coat will violate the Beneteau blister warranty. Looking at previous Beneteau owners manuals it simply states that you can sand the hull with 400 grit prior to applying a barrier coat.
Ultimately I want to apply an epoxy based antifouling paint to the boat which requires this barrier to be applied.
Any new Beneteau owners out there that have had this issue regarding the blister warranty?
