I hope this isn't redundant, but I cannot find a deninitive answer and I'm certain I'll get an answer here.
We were crushed yesterday in the Australia
Floods and ended-up conjoined with another yacht in raging, debris filled river water
. Lucky we weren't driven under!
I've just hauled out for hull repairs
and routine bottom job while we're at it and the boatyard is reluctant to apply JOTUN bottom paint
over my existing TRANS OCEAN bottom paint
. Both are ablative.
The yard is recommending we grind back and apply a Jotun Barrier Coat... because they cannot find any data on the Trans Ocean paint
I believe a barrier coat is un-necessary when applying ablative on ablative paint
I don't want to be cheap
about this but time is money
(especially while in an Australian boat yard) and the added procedure they suggest will add days and expense... and I just want an Outside Answer from the collective brilliance within this forum.
I cannot find the answer anywhere within the world wide web so any pointers would be much appreciated. Thanks.
