Ok I cleaned the hull with Interlux 202 solvent and now have started the sanding. I am using 150 grit sandpaper and everything seems to be going well. I should be able to finish with the sanding tomorrow. Here are some pics of the progress.

How long should I sand? Until there are no more shiny spots?

This is the distance from the bottom of the hull to the ground at the stern. I am going to use concrete blocks and a 4x4 on top. Then I am going to use the trailer jack to get the stern of the bunks then do the same thing at the bow.

Any suggestions, comments, or criticisms?

Thanks...
