Bottom stripping etc. This spring I wanted to strip my 31’ Uniflite bottom before the season started and was contemplating my options. After starting to strip the paint myself I quickly decided this just stinks, given I had about 7 or 8 coats of bottom paint on my rig. I came across Bullfrog Blasting. Jeremiah Wilson is the owner and is/was just an awesome guy to deal with. Words like ethics and integrity come to mind when I was working with him. Very honest and proud of the word he does. Plus he uses baking soda to blast the paint off so it’s ecofriendly.
So the only caution you “must” adhere to is “cover your work”. He mentioned I should cover my boat but I figured what could one day do? Bad decision on my part. All the bottom paint flew into the air and a lot of it settled on the topside of my boat. Needless to say, I spent about 40 hours buffing/stripping the bleed through that happened. Another plug for "FSR" (Fiberglass Stain Remover.) If you use FSR though, let is just sit on your fiberglass and soak for about 30 minutes to an hour, then rinse/wash it off - the stuff does work wonders, you just have to be patient. But my boat did turn out awesome. For a 1968, it is as near new as I can get it I think.
Take a look at his website, he does a lot of different things and I don’t think any project is too big or small. He also drove down to Seward from Chugiak so he is mobile.
