Re: OK, so I'm Sanding My Bottom...
What you have is very thick old bottom paint (the red) and ground out blisters ( the craters). Remove most of the red stuff with your sander. Fill the craters and holes with epoxy mixed with low density plastic filler, put it on with a putty knife.
I agree, but don't use a putty knife - you will be sanding until June.
Use a wide flexible piece of plastic, the wider the better. Used carefully there will not be much sanding required.
