Answer

After prepping the bottom, I applied the recommended two coats on a Friday morning using a foam roller. We launched our 77 Hunter 27 the following Thursday. While the boat was hanging in the hoist slings (lunch break), we touched up the bare spots from the storage cradle. At the end of the season, a quick pressure washing and she was ready for the winter storage. This stuff went on very easily, held up great (fresh water)and looks great this season. This is a hard smooth finish. Hope this helps.

Answer

I used the Interlux Racing Bronze about 10 months ago on a wooden boat I am building. I applied 3 coats at the time. I have the boat on carpeted supports and can say I have seen no degrading of the paint . Not being a chemist, don't know what the anti-fouling content will be, but think it is still fine.

Question

I have used this product religiously for years on my 40'mahogany Constellation. I LOVE it. Two coats every spring. I am now covering a repaired mahogany plywood bottom on a Glen L kit boat for the first time. Should I prime/prep the plywood before applying this paint? Thank you!

Interlux states that for Bare Wood you simply sand with 80 grade (grit) sandpaper and remove sanding residue with Special Thinner 216. Repair defects with Watertite, then sand and wipe clean. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216 or Brush-Ease 433. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30. Apply 2 further coats of Fiberglass Bottomkote with Irgarol. That being said, if you wanted to seal the wood with an epoxy first or that would be different, and you would just sand the cured epoxy sealer and clean before applying. Otherwise it shouldn't require any special primer.

This is a bronze color. It may darken a little after being in the water.
