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.

Wow!
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?
