  1. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    You're right. It was the Interlux yacht enamel, not the Brightside.
  2. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    I did a couple test runs with the Total Boat penetrating epoxy on okoume. When applied undiluted it wasn't noticeably thinner than regular S-3 epoxy and it didn't seem to penetrate at all. When I...
  3. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    Hey Todd,
    I've read several of your posts about Brightside directly over sanded epoxy/FG. I'm about ready to paint my CY, but right now it's bare okoume and will not have a FG overlay. My plan is to...
  4. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    That is good news actually. Probably just a bit of contamination on the FG, hopefully the only one.

  6. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    The data sheet for the Primekote specifies 3-7 days of cure time for the epoxy, then a wipe with YMA601V to remove the blush, then a water rinse, then sanding (80-120 grit).

    Some stearated...
  7. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    The Epoxy Primekote is the right primer over epoxy.
    It doesn't look like a FG blister, but rather a blister in the paint.
    It would be good to know if the Primekote separated from the epoxy/FG, or...
  8. Re: What causes a bubble on side of hull and how to repair

    Was the fiberglass cloth set with epoxy? Which primer did you use, Pre-Kote or Epoxy Primekote. By Brightside, do you mean one-part Interlux Polyurethane?

    Thanks Bobby. I've been through the Hydrocodone withdrawal two-step a couple times before. Not pleasant, but doable.
