Mr. Keith -- In terms of applying a barrier coat, you usually will find that people recommend the product they used to barrier coat their boat. In my case, I used MAS epoxy, so it is in fact an epoxy barrier boat. I sanded the bottom down to bare gelcoat, dug out the few blisters that were present, filled in those divots, faired the bottom and applied 6 coats of the MAS. No problems since then. As others have said, the bottom paint you choose is a separate deal from the barrier coating, and there are other threads on that topic alone.
