Re: Epoxy Barrier coat
If the hull was dried out, and new moisture penetration is now being prevented, or at least greatly reduced, by the epoxy layer, I think you have a reasonable cause to expect that there will be no more, or at least very few, more blisters.
I think the question now is what's happening inside the hull. Do you have a bilge that sits full of water all the time? It would be a good idea to keep it dry.
I think the case here is that Interlux 1000 and 2000 together are like belt and braces. Right now you only have a belt. Well. that's better than having your trousers fall down.
It's an old boat. Are you really going to strip off the bottom paint, and paint on Interlux 2000, to fix blisters you don't have yet?
