Applying Barrier Coat

I just got my rudder back from being completely rebuilt. I'm ready to apply a barrier coat with interprotect 2000E on advice from this forum - Thanks. Due to the weight and size of the rudder, I won't be able to put a coat on the whole rudder all at once unless I suspend it from the shaft which would be difficult. Is it just as effective to just lay it on it's side, put a coat on, let it dry, and then flip it over and do the other side? Or is there another way?

Thanks

Why not install it back onto the boat and then do the barrier coat ? This way you can paint all sides at once.

Thanks - but the boat is located in New Bedford Massachusetts. It won't be warm enough for a couple of months to do anything like this outside. Futhermore, the marina wants to put the rudder back on asap due the the large volume of work when the weather gets nice.

Read the instructions at http://www.yachtpaint.com/USA/hotlin...t_bulletin.pdf page 6. It shouldn't be a problem to do one side at a time other than you'll use up twice as many rollers. I would just roller one side, then lay it on some 2"x2" strips and do the other side. After the last coat dries, sand off any ridges resulting from the supports you used. After 5-6 coats, I'd bet you'll barely notice the flats. A barrier coat on a rudder isn't too critical...

Certified...in several regards...
