Why not just sand the ablative very nicely with long boards and fine paper - down to 400 wet. That will give you a very smooth bottom for next season. Next spring, launch it and let the paint continue to ablate, like it is designed to. The more it ablates, the less work you will have to do to prep for VC17.
