I've stopped drinking water .... I have seen what it does to the bottom of our boat!

It is a clear epoxy primer. Put on 4 coats and it looks and feels like 10 coats of varnish. Unfortunately it has no UV protection hence the need for varnish coats on top. I suggest 2 part polyurethane but I have also used Epifanes 1 pot on top of it with success.
I really was a complete traditionalist until I discovered this product.
BTW I have no commercial gains from recommendation.
Problem with the grab rails could be water getting underneath and then lifting off the varnish edge. Are they bedded on with compound or dry fitted? If dry then take them off and epoxy the undersides. Pain in the neck I know but it will save work down the years.
