Re: epoxy barrier coat sun exposure how long is too long?

DO NOT paint that nice epoxy coating with latex house paint. Do like Stumble say's and buy a tarp. In 1993 I coated my hull with 5 coats of WEST SYSTEM and the alluminum additive and it's still rock solid. We don't yet know the life span of modern epoxy's because they are still holding strong. You'll greatly compromise the integrity of your epoxy coating in the process of removing the latex. Hell, buy the 40 dollar tarp from Home Dope and cover the whole boat.
