Subject: The West Advisor says it is "OK"
In reply to: Randall, M31, Murre 's message, "Bottom Paint Combinations" on - Monday - 04/23/07 - 1:22pm

The West Advisor states that ablative/copolymer paints CAN be applied over most other types of antifouling paints. See page 277 of the 2007 West Marine Catalog. It states that an ablative can be applied over a vinyl paint by sanding the old vinyl paint "well" before application of the new ablative paint. If the old bottom paint is actually a modified epoxy (Trinidad, etc.) then even less sanding of the old bottom paint is required.

Just make sure whatever color ablative you use, the hard paint underneath will show it's colors when the ablative starts wearing out. Then you'll know it's time for another coat of ablative.
