I'd second the sodablasting... Once they've done it, you'll have a bit of sanding to do, then you can fair the hull, patch the blisters and barrier coat it.

I'd recommend using Interprotect 2000E, but you can also use any of the major brands of Epoxy. I found that using EP2KE was easier.

Rolling on the barrier coat is very easy to do, especially if you use both the white and gray IP2000E, as it allows you to readily see where you've barrier coated and with how many layers. Using epoxy is a bit more difficult to keep track of.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
