Bottom Paint

Any update on the C&C 37 Micron CSC to Baltoplate/VC conversion.

Early November we hauled for the season (for good actually - bought a new boat right around then). The damned new paint had bubbled up all over the place. The diver had mentioned some bubbling during the summer, but I had no idea how much until we pulled the boat.

We (the yard that put it on and I) have no idea why, but it created little blisters filled with a liquid that smells like uncured paint. It''s definitely the new paint blistering, not hull/osmotic blisters.

Interlux has sent a rep by to look at it, and they want to do some moisture testing. Of course in the mean time I''m try to sell the thing, and it looks terrible even though it is nothing that sandpaper can''t cure.

I think it has something to do with the conditions at the time of application (cool, damp weather in Rhode Island in Early) combined with the rush the yard had to get it done. The first coating you could take to the tell layer with three rubs of 320 grit sandpaper, so there was something wrong and the yard had to re-sand and paint over that.

Anyway - while we got a big lift in performance last season I suspect more credit is due to sails and less to bottom, although even with these blisters overall the bottom was still considerably smoother than the surface-of-the-moon/orange peel that was on there.

Also on the First 40.7 I purchased this fall, the original owner put something that looks like CSC on it. Looks like it was possibly rolled on too. What a horrible thing to do to a Farr bottom. Gotta get that smoothed out.

Back to square one for me...

I''ll put up an update when (and if) Interlux figures out what happened.
