Re: Barrier Coat vs. Bottom Paint Application

This is slightly off topic, but I have been using Pettit Hydrocoat ever since I had my bottom blasted and barrier coated 7-years ago. I get two seasons (years) out of a coat of Hydrocoat in Narragansett Bay. When the time comes to re-coat I scrub the bottom with Barkeeper's Friend and water with a scotch-brite pad, to expose clean paint, and then apply another layer. For years that I don't paint, I lightly scrub with a scotch-brite pad and splash.

YMMV depending on location, but this works for me.
