Barrier Coat

I''m preparing to barrier coat my Cape Dory Typhoon bottom, and need to benefit a little from your collective experience.


I''ve removed the bottom paint, and in many places the gelcoat has hundreds of hairline cracks. Will standard (West, Sys 3, Interlux, etc.) epoxy barrier coat products fill or seal these cracks? I understand the process of rolling on, then squeegeeing to fill pin holes as described in the West System literature. It seems this should also work with my cracks, but is this a safe assumption?


Gluvit specifically claims that it will fill and seal cracks in fiberglass. Have any of you used Gluvit as a barrier coat?


I''ve used the search function and already read many opinions on barrier coat products and their application. I haven''t yet settled on a product yet, so if you''ve got a favorite product or an application tip, I''d love to hear about it.


Thanks,


Ron Ellis
