failure of 3M vinyl ester barrier coating.
3 years ago i sanded off all the gel coat and found a great looking bottom, with no blisters or voids in the laminate, i applied many coats of the 3M vinyl ester barrier coat. With help from Bob Boyd he is the 3m rep at least here in annapolis. now 3 years later i just took my boat out of the water and have about 1000 small blisters- they dont appear to be into the laminate. Funny thing about 2 years ago 3m actually came into west marine and reoved the barrier coat-to the dumpsters. what do I do- Bob Boyd wont return my calls- the guys at west marine have heard several stories like this thanks Frank
