On a boat that had more things bad than i could count





Somehow under about 15 coats of bottom paint was PERFECT blister free barrier coat which i did NOT want to mess up

And i was not paying the soda-blast guy 2K

While it was painful to use a 3" carbide scraper it only took about 24 hours to reach intact barrier coat on a 29' hull without much dust at all



After a fast scuff and clean and more barrier coat the bottom paint was once again happy



After a full season of soaking the bottom paint is still happy

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