Interlux’s InterProtect 2000E Kit uses “microplates” in a two-part epoxy coating to protect fiberglass hulls against blistering that occurs when water gets absorbed through your gelcoat. The coating creates a protective barrier that is compatible with virtually all bottom paints. Below the waterline, InterProtect 2000E can be used to protect hulls, keels, trim tabs, and running gear. Above the waterline the product is compatible with fiberglass and all metals.
The Volvo Penta D8 fills a gap in the company’s line of recreational-boat-ready diesels, and it’s already linked to a next-generation IPS pod. Take our word for it, you’ll be seeing more of this engine at the next boat shows and beyond.
