Can VS721 be applied over anti-fouling paint?


Kenneth Peters asked:

Hi, I want to use VS721 on my Fiber glass boat, can I apply it over the present Anti-fouling paint that is on the boat now, it was painted on new in 2017, Also can I use Greene Genie as a prep cleaner before applying VS721

Hi Kenneth,

VS721 must be applied to clean and dry gelcoat on fiberglass boats. It is not suitable for use over anti-fouling paint. The paint needs to be stripped off first. Proper prep is with Boat Scrub.


Thanks for your question,
