Re: First time bottom painting
Your post did little to clear up any confusion. FYI to anyone who remains unclear on the definition- "Bottom paint" is anti fouling paint. Two terms for the same thing. "Bottom paint" does not refer to an epoxy barrier coat, which is not a "paint" of any kind.
I guess I have run into a few first-time boat owners that think anything you put on the underside of a boat is "bottom paint". I've seen more than one person ask what brand/type "bottom paint" will help prevent blisters on a new boat.
I think it's pretty clear that JMN412
doesn't know what kind of "paint" he is sanding off. Asking if he is sanding down to barrier or gelcoat will go a long way in helping us give good advice. Do you think he knows the difference?
