    I have created a Google Photo album here where I detailed the annoying task of sanding off the old layers of bottom paint, repairing the shallow blisters and applying 3 coats of Interlux 2000i barrier epoxy and 2 coats of Pettit Trinidad bottom paint. 

    The usual disclaimer applies ie this is how I did it and you may need to use different means and methods.

    Wow , that was a lot of work in just 13 days . What is the red paint in-between the gray and blue ? Is it a tell tale coat ?

    It was 17 days start to finish with 3 days out of the yard resting from sanding. We had 10-20K winds blowing through the yard and a couple of 100+ days -- not that much fun weather wise. 

    The gray white gray is to make application easier - ie reduce holidays when painting grey on grey on grey.

    The red then blue - should make the rough sanding easier at the next haul out - ie stop sanding when you hit the red paint!
