tommays will become famous soon enough


A 3" carbide PULL scraper turned out the best and even that took 8 spare blades as once they go somewhat dull it really slows down

Home Depot sells there Husky brand and the blades BUT it is only in the store NOT on there web sight

The razor blade was a PUSH tool and dulled pretty easy on bottom paint

Like everything else it took time to find the best angle of attack that took paint and not boat

BUT the barrier coat is MUCH harder than bottom paint

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