"If I were in your shoes I would probably just repair the couple blisters that you have and monitor them at next haul out to see if the blister problems have progressed. If the problem abates, your home free. If it gets a little worse then make the necesary repairs. But if it gets much worse, then do a peel, and come back with epoxy and cloth which is the real way to do it right."
Please excuse my ignorance of the subject. The cure appears to be expensive. Is it worth the time and expense involved?

Other than the degraded appearance and possibly a minute loss of speed, what is the downside of ignoring blisters?
