      General question regarding a barrier coat.
      How does one deal with the stands?  Do you put wax paper on the stands & move them around or go around them, then go back to attack those areas?

      Two Interprotect tricks:
      Use a short nap rollller to minimize orange peel
      Alternate white and gray coats so you can see where you've painted

      I soda blasted the bottom of my Sabre 402 and then put on 6 coats of interprotect followed by two coats of antifouling. Its now 5 years old and except for one repeat antifouling it has been great. It is worth alternating colours of the paints so that when sanding you can see the thin spots. The hardest work was sanding the interprotect after to make a smooth bottom as it "orange peeled" on application. I think it well worth the cost an effort. Your bottom should be fine for years.
