Those may not be osmotic blisters, but gel coat voids, where there was some contamination between the gelcoat and the first layer of matte. That's certainly what they look like. Osmotic blisters would be weeping.

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.

yes, I thought the same thing, fortunately I had only about 10 osmotic blisters about the size of a quarter, and they were not oozing very much

It could have been worse.

Like I said, I'm not here to debate - I'm here to learn and share. Almost all of what you say makes good sense - wish I had your advice before ordering the Bottomkote (classic). Also, I do appreciate your detailed response. I have been sailing for 45 years but I have only been working on boat bottoms for 5 months. Looks like I'll be looking for something to do with an unopened gallon of Bottomkote. Maybe I can talk a local merchant into taking it of my hands in exchange for a can of red Micron Extra (and the difference in price). In my defense, I DID do an enormous amount of reading - here and elsewhere and I'm normally very skeptical of what I read in forums. I'm a little surprised at Chef's post above since I was unaware that any ablative was made in black - I know Micron Extra isn't.
Brak - please forgive me for the diversion away from your topic.
Thanks again to all.

Yes Micron Extra, CSC and ACT are all made in Black. The West Marine product number for Micron Extra in black gallons is 1146786.

West Marine PCA Gold also comes in black as does Pettit Ultima SR..

That's ok Topics are made for discussion. It's not like anything magic will come out of sticking to original topic.

BTW Micron CSC and Extra are both definitely available in black - first choice on Defender, in fact.
