    share some barrier coat?

    I am finally getting ready to barrier coat my hull. I have been buying my epoxy from epoxyproducts.com which has been great (aside from his crazy website), very good products at a reasonable cost.

    well, except barrier coat... he only sells a 3 gal barrier coat minimum. (Actually, he sells by the qt but that would be double the price.) Anyway, I have "calculated" and read, that we only need 1-1.5 gal to coat the hull below the waterline.

    So the question is: would anyone like to split 3 Gal of barrier coat (water gard 300) from epoxyproducts.com

    price currently 422.00 plus tax+shipping

    lemme know, matt

    Matt - Sorry, I'm not at a point to be able to join in on the purchase, but have a question: does your Ariel have blisters?

    Besides that, if you can't find a taker - Interprotect 2000e can be had for a bit over $100/gal online.

    I'll second Kurt's recommendation. I'm a big fan of 2000e. Have used it as a barrier coat, primer, bilge paint, and interior finish. It adheres really well, recoats quickly, sands easily and is available in white and gray. - like the lady in the hot sauce commercial "I put that **** on everything."

    i ground/sanded the hull a couple years ago.... and no blisters, however, the gel coats was crazed like crazy and I was already dealing with numerous other issues below the waterline. But, When I started sanding i didnt realize just how much work it was going to be, otherwise I would not have considered it. HA.

    anyway, i will research Interprotect 2000e. thanks
