Re: Barrier Coat vs. Bottom Paint Application

Isn't the keel on that boat a bolt-on? If so, then there isn't any osmosis reason to barrier coat the bottom of the keel.

If it was me, and the scraping/feathering wasn't too onerous every spring, I'd keep on doing that until it wasn't possible anymore. If you plan to move so that it stays in the water, or go further cruising with it, then I'd do the strip and coat thing.
