Yeah, I understand about the gelcoat, but unfortunately one side has several good dings and scratches that need to be filled and faired properly.
After some more thought last night this is what I've come up with:
Completely sanding the bottom coat off and cleaning with solvent wash. Then roughing the top boot stripe. Filling and fairing the dings and scratches. Two coats of Interlux Pre-Kote above the waterline. Then 2-3 coats of Interlux Brightside above the waterline and 2-3 coats of Interlux VC Underwater Epoxy below the waterline.
What do we think?
