Question Osmosis repair completed now what?

Long story short, I have completely resheathed my hull as a 'more permanent' solution to my osmosis problem and also to rebuild the outer glass layer (foam sandwich hull) after having removed the gellcoat once and then removed the first repair attempt (done professionally by a boatyard using the West System). I have used Bi-axial cloth and epoxy resin. The hull has now been faired using epoxy filler and I am now ready to do the antifoul application.
What should I use (if anything) before applying the antifoul?
Seems unnecessary to now use something like West Barrier System when I have already applied a completely new 'barrier' by way of the cloth and epoxy resin. Should I just apply a hull 'paint' then the antifoul?

It depends on the anti-fouling you want to use. Some require a primer. Some only require a primer for certain types of hull materials. I don't think a barrier coat is going to be necessary, given all that you've just finished doing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
See the Interlux website for priming and compatibility advice:
http://www.yachtpaint.com/usa/

If you feel you don't find a clear answer in the material they have on the web, you can call them at 908 686 1300 and one of their tech people should be able to help you. I have found them very rersponsive in the past.

Good luck.

Answers osmosis query

Thanks Sailingdog I agree the epoxy is in itself the new 'barrier coat' but as Sailingfool says perhaps a call to guys who sell the stuff would be worthwhile to make sure that the antifoul does not have a compatability problem with the epoxy filler that necessitates some sort of 'primer'. I'm trying now to get hold of the local guys (I'm based in South Africa).

You might want to try contacting the MFG. via e-mail if you don't get a response from the locals.
