I have an issue with Osmosis on Swan. From underwater inspections I see and feel some blisters and also a “crater” about 2cm across and 1-2 mm deep. The later really concerns me. The purchase survey 9 months ago did alert me to some problems but not bad enough to cancel the deal.
I would like to slip and anti-foul Swan in a month or two but need to learn all I can re Osmosis first.
A search on this site has not found much useful info mainly a short discussion from 2004. So I am wondering if anyone can add anything. I don’t plan to lay up the boat for months to dry it out only a week at max.
I will look wider on the web and if I find anything useful will link it back here.

Re: Osmosis
It would be worth your while to have a look at the booklet put out by International paints. It has a section on dealing with osmosis.
ATL Composites, the WEST system distributors in Aus have a DVD on osmosis. Do all the research you can.
