Bottom job, head spinning, help

32 Endeavour, just done sanding and gouging blistered area. This will be my first time doing this and I don't want to bolo it all up. So I'm asking for some advice.

So is this this proper order and type of product for the job? My head is spinning between 202, CSC, MAS low visc, 2000/2001, 1000/1001, epoxy fillers 2 part 1 part

1 waiting for drying.

2 After dry enough via moisture meter, how dry is dry?

3 clean bottom with ??? acetone suggested cleaner??

4 prep and apply fiberglass How deep before you need fiberglass as opposed to filling?

5 dry sand clean


6 apply a low viscosity epoxy 1 coat, suggested brand?? just over spot or entire hull?

7 dry sand clean

8 apply epoxy filler interlux water tight epoxy filler

9 dry sand clean

10 epoxy over these 1 coat low viscosity epoxy suggested brand??

11 dry sand clean

12 interlux 2000/2001 2-4 coats

13 dry sand clean

14 anti fouling 2-3 coats


Does this cover it? Am I off, missing something? are there too many dry sand clean steps? Did I repeat something, like 2 barrier coats thinking one is sealing and other barrier? Are these all compatible layers?

What is best for cleaning between each?

Follow these manufacturers instructions and you are assured of success. Don't guess, and don't take advice from random experts. It's a big time and money investment so do it right. Good luck.
P.S.
After you have gone over the literature you may have a specific question and the nice people on this forum will be more than willing to help.

Re: Bottom job, head spinning, help

Thank you sir, will check it out.

I've been reading so much and watching so many videos.

Just need to take it one at a time

Dry, going to look at diy localized vacuum drying as I did industry work on food vacuum drying things. Really fiberglass laminate with blisters is a super dense hard sponge, so it should work. Otherwise, rinse and sit, repeat. I am starting to fear the yard bill.

fiberglass I've experience laying glass so no biggy.

Epoxy ? spots or whole surface, over gelcoat too?

Fill, can you trowl this on? If say the gel coat was removed from a 1x4 length down to glass, could you get a large dry wall trowl and lay it on and fair filling all sorts of divets, would the small filled spots cause problems?


barrier coat 10mils painting

a 1 / 2 antifoul coat
