Re: Ready To Go Back In?

With the barrier coat products being epoxies the recommendation is to apply at 50 degrees or above. Recoat times are a few hours up to fifteen days. The first coat of bottom paint has to follow immediately behind the last coat of barrier or else you have to sand. Temps in the 50s for more than a day or so at a time are iffy in March but Ill just have to take it as it comes. Im debating between the Ultima SR 40 or SR 60. Ive used the 40 in the past with good results but if the 60 is a whole lot better Ill consider it.

The FSR is part of the plan as weve had good results with it too. We dont have the time or patience to do the full Maine Sail wax job, but well be happy just to get the topsides cleaned up and protected.
