I just sanded off all my VC17 and I'm getting ready to put on some water barrier paint then offshore antifouling. Its my understandng that osmosis happens to fibreglass and creates blisters. Is there any good reason to put Interprotect 2000 on my lead keel? Just curious.
No - the lead doesn't need sealing - bottom paint is all it needs. I'd take the InterP down past the joint though - might help to seal it a bit better. On an iron keel it's a different story - I epoxy faired my iron keel then Interp'd it a couple of times more just to help ensure against rust through
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
