Re: Removing Bottom Paint
You get to see where the pads have rested over the years.
I actually spent time to figure out how to do under the pads
This is all very toxic!
Don't forget fairing
Sanding now done:
Barrier coat, Interprotect 2000e
I had one blister that was new
Freshwater protect, VC17m applied:
Somewhere I have pictures of the tools, include a drag scraper, 5in1 scraper, and a SKILL brand dust collecting sander. You could connect a vac to the sander, but I couldn't figure out how to do that and wrangle a hose too.
Good luck, it's a miserable job.
