Water Gard 300 for barrier coat?

Anyone ever use this product as a barrier coat? According to manufacturer and some reviews on their website, it's easier to use and only requires two coats. I I don't recall anyone ever mentioning it here before.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

Just so happens I did... Applied in 05' and no complaints. Easy to apply and no/low VOC's, so 1 or at most 2 coats is all you'll need. Here are some pics of my project. (1982 Seafarer 37)

I've used many products from this company... His basic epoxy is cheaper than West System and (I think) far superior. The website is just about the hardest to navigate that I've come across, but packed with great information. (epoxyproducts.com) Paul (owner) has been very helpful with advice over the years.

Re: Water Gard 300 for barrier coat?

thanks for the kind words of support - I do monitor a lot of the boating forums, heck I own about 30 kayaks and canoes, etc. - no time to use them, just build and or repair them constantly! Guess I am a serious boat nut.
