I'm making a little progress in my bottom paint strip process.
What I'm up against:
How it looks after chemical stripping, manual scraping, and random orbital sanding:
I think the real cause of the problem was that the bottom was barrier coated at one point, and then the bottom paint did not adhere to the barrier coat. This has caused large chunks of paint to flake off
If you look at the second pic, you can see the difference between the white gelcoat and the gray barrier coat. If I am correct, does that mean I need to remove the barrier coat and start over?
I have lots of work ahead of me. Today I bought a new scraper with a carbide bit. That seams to work the best so far.
