Bottom paint for a trailer sailer?
Anyone know about the Interlux VC performance epoxy? The specs say it can be applied over bare fiberglass. I have a trailered sailboat that i have sanded all the old bottom paint off of. I plan to fill and fair with epoxy filler. Do i need a barrier coat? Boat will not be in the water more than 48 hours max at a time. Will be sailing on Tampa Bay.

Re: Bottom paint for a trailer sailer?
Doubt very much the need for a barrier coat. I asked at the boat show which paint I should use on my trailer-able sailboat, both Interlux and Petti said ablative. However I also doubt the need for any bottom paint if the boat is only in the water for a few days then sits on the trailer drying out the majority of the time.
