I don't think any epoxy product has its own UV protection by itself. If you use a filler material the resin is still there.
the graphite bottom cote on mine has faded a bit over the years. However,
it was done in 2007, it is kept outside, and I've nothing to maintain the bottom.
yeah, its faded a bit. no peeling, no blistering, no adhesion problems, no UV protection either.
With that said, I would not option to do a topsides with this system though.

Mine is not a shiny mahogany, it is a fishing boat, and the one thing that is constant over the years is the easy repairable bottom.
I have my share of bumps & bruises on the bottom. Since it is not paint, I simply mix up epoxy and mop on the repair.
No paint to feather out-to get down to the epoxy-to make the repair-to put new paint on-to purchase $80 quart of paint-to dollop on a bruise.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Good advice Ken. I like the way you think.
The epoxy on the sides up to the water line can be uv protected same as the sides.
Thanks again.

It will be good to see you Carl.
That's Interlux Interstain 573 CC Mahogany. Same as Jimbob used. It may be a little different color on this wood, Red Grandis.

First coat of Poxy Shield. Ended up roll and tipping. Minimal problems with foaming. Fast hardener didn't agree with me so went back to slow. Easier to put on a thin coat with the thin.

Wow ! Beautiful finish! Thanks again for allowing me to come visit last Friday. It was a big help to see all the mechanical parts in person. From seeing your work in person I know that will be one beautiful Barrelback.

I cannot get these pics correct but I can flip a boat! Great to see it upright.

I was amazed at how much bigger your boat appears right side up. It looks awesome I'm glad I was able to come visit Monday and see it in person.

Nice looking boat. Maybe next time I'm in Louisville I can drop by to see her.
