Re: Bottom paint flag coat theory vs. reality
I'm going to be hot coating my bottom paint to 2000E this coming spring and noticed that you suggest doing it quickly after applying the 2000E. The interlux guy over on yachtpaint.com says that waiting the 3 hours is OK for getting that chemical bond. I think it needs to be applied quicker and will try to get better info from the interlux guy. I'm also going to be using the bluewater brand of ablative rather than micron extra and wonder if you've noticed any problem of going away from the interlux product line for hot coating to 2000E?
