I did try to limit the lead grinding, but it had to be done. I ended up using interlux 2000e as a primer, and then glassed 4 layers over the entire front edge of the keel and 8-10 inches up the hull. Then I used west systems 406 and 407 to rebuild and fair the areas that I had removed material. Now I'm in the process of prepping it for 4 coats of 2000e and bottom paint. With any luck I'll have the whole thing painted by Sunday. Repositioned on Monday, and finish the pad areas and get it back in the water before I'm broke.
