Barrier Coat Newbie

Hi All,
I am stripping my hull to the gel coat and would like to seal with an epoxy barrier coat before painting. I am OK with the basics of working with epoxy but not with the boat aspect of things. What is the best way to deal with the areas left by the jack stands. With bottom paint I just cover up the spots while in the slings, obviously not going to work for six coats of epoxy!

You need to work out how to move the stands, in this case. We did so when we barrier coated outr 36, just I was not happy doing it. The boat was in out back yard or I would hav epaid the yard to move them.

Search for the last month's post on "how many jackstands.."

Get one more stand than you need and keep replacing stands as you go along.

Thanks guys! I got the jack stand thing covered ( I hope! ), what I really don't get is how to blend the patch. How do I avoid the extra thickness of epoxy at the overlap? Grind an angle like a hull repair? Feather it when I put it on? Or will it not be so bad and I'm worrying for naught?

It's like rolling paint on a wall and you're gonna cover everything with bottom paint anyway...relax!

If you're using InterProtect, you can layer the barrier coat using the two different colors to control the amount of overlap.

If the hull of your boat is white, use the Grey IP2000 as the base coat... then leave a two-to-three inch band of Grey IP2000 around the boat stand showing when you do the second layer of White IP2000.

Put another layer of Grey IP2000 on, leaving a two-to-three inch layer of White IP2000 showing, and then put another layer of White IP2000, leaving another band of Grey IP2000 showing.

Then move the stands... and then fill in the layered squares...

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.

Interprotect (sp?) is incredible. I have done 2 boats and about to start my 3rd. Absolutely works. With any left over you can coat the inside of lockers etc.
