Are Pinholes A Big Deal?

Ahoy all -

Just had our 1985 O'Day 26 sodablasted.

It turned out great -- the hull is smooth and paint-free, and pretty much ready to go for the new barrier coat and then ablative paint.

There were some spots that needed some epoxy fill (done this afternoon), and some areas of pinholes (found and filled most). The pinholes almost look like a spray of freckles.

The question is, should I be concerned about finding/filling every one of the pinholes? Should I try to find/fill every one of them with the fairing epoxy? Or will the barrier coat (Interlux 2000) take care of it?

Thanks in advance,

Bruce

I wouldn't worry about them... if they're really just pinholes, the barrier coating will take care of them.

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.

You're no fun SD

To the Original Poster:

If you don't find and fill every one of them then your boat will rot and sink in 24 hours

Odays are close to an inch thick in some areas below the water line. no coring either. My boat had small blisters at the waterline. lots of pinholes too. Last year we stripped and filled and faired, most of the blisters weren't even deeper then the gel coat. 4-5 coats of 200E and I"m glad I opted for it. All we did was touch up the bottom paint this spring.
