We're in a tropical environment on a 42 footer, changing from soft to hard bottom paint
; from Sea Hawk to Pettit Trinidad SR. We are aware of the dangers and necessary precautions.To change paint
types it is necessary to take it down to the existing epoxy
. We have only ever sanded old paint
. The yard wants to use paint
stripper in the interest of a 5 day tide widow; it's faster. Any input on stripping will be more than we have and appreciated.
