The keel strip of thickened epoxy goes on before the paint. I have 2 inch tape under my keel strip, but you can go with just epoxy if you want. I'd never apply epoxy over paint.

: So there is no issue with applying the keel strip AFTER the hull is
: painted? Do you add an extra layer of tape with the epoxy - or
: is it just expoy alone?
