Bottom Job / Barrier Coat

Always use blue tape for bottom job and repainting bootstripe. Used it when doing epoxy barrier coat also. It was on for five days and came off without problems.

I retaped after the barrier coat for the bottom paint. I put the tape right at the top of, but over, the barrier coat. This left a nice 3/4" highlight between the black bottom paint and the black bootstripe.

Try the purple...it is very new and, to me, is better than the blue. It came highly recommended.

Bottom Job / Barrier Coat

Done the barrier coat thing. Sanded the entire bottom wih a 4 1/2 inch angle grinder with 7 inch metal oxide sanding discs I purchased from Home Depot in 36 grit and 50 grit. This is a very messy way to do it but it works well once you get the hang of it (be very very careful or youl be doing more fairing than it''s worth). As for the barrier coat I ALWAYS use 3M fine line film tape for the waterline and for varnish work. This is the light green stuff it''s expensive but if you want a fine line with no bleed through this is the way to go. You MUST peel the tape off before each coat of barrier epoxy sets up or it WILL take chunks off with it. Good luck!

A couple of the messages in this thread mentioned blasting with food grade bicarbonate of soda. Any ideas on where to get this stuff? I can get big boxes of baking soda at Costco, but the way the post describe the food grade stuff, it sounds like the granules are different.
