  2. I have effected a small repair job to the rudder blade and I'm ready to finish the job. I need to get some antifoul on there but am unsure what to use as a primer / undercoat. This https://www.burnsco.co.nz/shop/boating/paint-maintenance/primer-undercoat/altex-multipurpose-primer-undercoat looks like it might be just the ticket. But then again, it might be absolutely the wrong ticket. I used West System Epoxy if that makes a difference. Hope that's not too vague a question.

  3. On a rudder I’d use an epoxy primer- all the brands have them, then apply antifoul of your choice at the “no thumbprint”stage which is a about 20 minutes to an hour after application but check the antifoul for instructions. Its called hot coating and ensures a good bond which is what you want on a rudder. Also as mentioned you can antifoul straight over west if you clean/abrade it. I’d just call the paint tech and ask for the specifics as some products wont bond well without specific prep

Rep refunded the 66 and gave me more Ultra. Always do a test panel for compatibility, if your gut is playing up. I have used abraided/peelplyed epoxy for just about everything, including under t
