Blister Prevention

I have a newly purchased 1969 Bristol Corinthian the bottom of which I have stripped down to the gelcoat. In addition I am in the process of removing water saturated flotation foam from the bilge beneath the cockpit and cuddy sole. I was thinking of doing the usual barrier coat routine with a layer of West System epoxy followed by several coats of epoxy barrier coat paint, but I''m worried that the hull might have water trapped in it due to the soaked foam in the bilge. I''m now thinking of using alkyd/urethane/silicone paint as Don Casey describes in "This Old Boat". I''d appreciate any comments, opinions, and advice from the Sailnet community.

Fair Winds,
Peter Sterne,

Don''t know anything about the paint you describe, but I think there are moisture meters to check the hull.
