Come up with a creative way to hold it that wont jack up the nmast or your work




make it naked



DON'T sand to aggressively there is not a whole lot of extra metal




Put on a coat of over priced yellow stuff




Put on some over priced primer in less than 24 hours OR do the yellow again





Try and find some way to get all the stuff back on without dinging the paint which takes 14 days to full cure

Perfection or Awlgrip is Like Ford and Chevy





Do a bunch of sailing and enjoy it



Than spend a bunch more money because all the other stuff looks shabby compared to the mast

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
