Blisters and Whalers?

I am getting ready to bottom paint my new Conquest 255 and am contiplating a barrier coat. Although I've had Whalers for years without blisters this is the first time that the boat will live in the water... Warm Salty Florida Keys Water. If anyone has heard of a newer Whaler blistering I'll spend the money. If not I'll be on the water this weekend. Thanks.

It's pretty rare, but there are reports of whalers blistering. Anecdotally seems more common in fresh water.
If it is worth doing, do it right...

You will have to put some primer on the boat anyway, so why not a couple of coats of barrier? Mine is silver, so it does the double duty of letting me know when my ablative paint is getting thin. I agree that it's a good idea for boats which live in the water.
