Before or after barrier coat and bottom paint?

I'm installing a new depth transducer on a used boat. I had the hull soda blasted so there's no barrier coat or bottom paint.

Should I drill the holes now or wait until after I paint the bottom?

Re: Before or after barrier coat and bottom paint?

it depends on the paint you are using I guess. Hard antifouling like copper coat you can install later, abrasive antifouling - I would install before painting.

I'm using Petitt Protect as the barrier coat and VC-17 as the bottom paint. So, I should paint the barrier coat and install the transducer afterward.
