just reading your thread about bottom paint. They must have thought that since its a new boat it doesn''t need prep work. Wrong, it did, mold release and wax was surely still on it. If you don''t care to much about how it looks, use the boat for the season and then properly prepare it in the fall,or winter for next year. There are some wonderful products available. Do the research and consider doing it yourself.
By the way, I am planning a trip down the Hudson next fall, any bits of advise?
thanks Paul- good luck with the paint
