Well i got some high dollar high tech. bottom paint for my fiberglass bowpicker. tech services of paint manuf. says wipe off with this solvent, sand with 80 grit, wipe again and paint ...well it ain't that easy. what ever bottom paint was on it started out medium blue but turned to black smudge with sanding then when wipped it was like i painted it black. i want to be sure it is done properly as i do not want to have to do this again any time soon. so we have taken it down to previous primer. what a tiring, nasty, dirty job. I come out of there every night looking like papa smurf. Also working having couple arms with tennis elbow and bicepital tendonitis. thank goodness for Ibuprofen 800's .
We should finish sanding today, luckily the back half was different older paint that is coming off easier.
also last night we pulled the boat off the trailer.
after all this is completed topside will get worked over.
