I would only reapply gelcoat if your concerned it about the cosmetics. The
multiple coats of epoxy barrier coat will take care of the bare spots.

Yup.  I got one of those somewhere.  I'm going to need it next week to
reload the bearings in the 22mm traveler of the beach cat I'm restoring.
If I can't find it, I'll just use shaving cream.

I was looking at installing a Genius Gen2 20A unit.  I found some good

I had two Guest chargers on previous boats that similarly just died.  On my
current boat I installed a Charles 3-bank (I think it's 30 amp) "smart"
charger.  It was expensive, but is robust.  I haven't had any issues since
I installed it several years ago.

I have no idea how old this device is or how long they are supposed to last.

Is there anything else I could check?

However, if it has simply 'expired', any suggestions on what I might
replace it with?

Subject: Stus-List Stripping the bottom
Hey everyone.


I am in the middle of stripping the bottom paint off of my C&C 36.   I
would day tjere is 30 years of bottom paint.   There are no blisters juat
that muck of thr oaint was flaking off.   Once done I will be doing the
barrier coat and reapplying the bottom paint.    I burned through the
gelcoat in a few places while sanding.

My question is do i need to apply a coat of gelcoat to those places or will
the barrier coat protect the glass and prevent moisture intrusion.

I can honestly say this won't be a job that I will tackle again on this
boat.

Thanks
Adam
