and another thing ...
I, too, was interested in the VE barrier coat based on Zahniser's web site.
But I found absolutely no supporting information as to how to prepare the surface, apply the product, how much is required, overcoating times, etc. I even emailed one of the manufacturers -- no response.
For those of us who might do this job once per boat owned, the learning curve is a steep one.
If you look at the information provided by Interlux on their Interprotect product line, all of these questions are answered, in great detail. I have had the occasion to pose a couple of questions via email to Interlux's technical support folks, and on each occasion, received a prompt and complete response.
I may end up paying a bit more for the Interprotect product, but I feel comfortable with the hand-holding that I get from them.
I used Interprotect on my previous boat 10 years ago, when the barrier coat consisted of Interprotect 1000 and 2000, and the end result was as good as I had hoped for.
So this Spring, I will go with Interprotect again.
