Re: OK, so I'm Sanding My Bottom...

The "gel coat" if there is one is whats throwing me...

I would assume the ablative coat(s) would be soft and when sanding I should "hit" a hard coat layer (gel coat) but it just kind of mixes and blends with the gray coat and then matt...??

Here's a couple more shots...where you can see glass and depthe of "gray matter"

Blisters aren't "watery" blisters more like air bubbles between layers...and then when they open, they kinda peel away at the edges to become open "sores"..

Some in the red just down to gray... and some in gray that were covered by red...

And a couple that went thru both layers down to glass matt
