    Ashbreeze Boat Works did the bottom paint on mine. I took most of the old off using Easy Off oven cleaner. It took enough off that he didn't have to do any further stripping.
    His number is 529-5931. Name is Joel. Good guy and good work.

    Default thanks for the info bull

    hey did you just spray it on and leave it or was there some additional work that you had to do. the bottom of my boat has two coats of paint on it and i just wanted it removed without hurting the gloss.

    Default Brush

    I sprayed it on thick and by the time I was around the boat, it was working. The few places that I scrubbed with a long handle brush did come cleaner. It took it down pretty thin everywhere else. It completely stripped 75% of the hull. The rest covered easily.
    The out drive and tabs took a little elbow grease with acetone, but again, even that wasn't bad. The Easy Off worked well.
