Having just purchased the boat and sanding it for bottom paint I found a poor faring job between the keel and hull that let water in. A couple of blisters were detected too so this is my plan to fix it:
  • Remove all the old faring job I can get off.
  • Dry the area as much as possible, perhaps using a heat gun briefly.
  • Sand and prime the keel with INTERLUX Promocon
  • Sand the hull.
  • Use INTERLUX Watertite Epoxy Filler Interprotect to fill the space, seal the area.
    I also plan to use it to fill any area, above and below the waterline, that needs the gel coat touched up. I'd like the hull to be smooth.
  • Sand hull smooth.
  • Use INTERLUX Interprotect 2000E Barrier Coat below the entire waterline.
  • Use INTERLUX VC-17M for bottom paint.

I've chosen to use all Interlux to ensure there are no unintended chemical reactions and yes, I plan to take at least 5 to 7 working days to get the done as I do not want to have to revisit this problem again.

Any old Salts out there with thoughts on the plan and/or products?

What advice would you offer?
That was my original plan... I didn't know that Promocon (360r) reacted poorly with VC17. I had the keel primed up and ready to go in 2011 when I learned that piece of trivia.

So, that set back and a couple of overseas trips ended my 2011 boat work. I didn't touch the boat at all in 2012 but I'm back at it in 2013.

I'll have some pics to post in the coming days.

Re: O'day Tempest keel / hull joint

Pretty intense. Your cracks must have been much worse than mine. I used the Marinetek epoxy and filled it in. So far (knock wood) she has been in the water for 2 seasons. She even got knocked of her stanchions during Sandy. I'll bet your keel will look like it just came off the O'day line when you are done! Can you post a pic?
