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

Just finished up sanding... Feels like I've been sanding for a week...

Wait a second...I have been sanding for a week...

Anyway, after laying under this thing, staring at it day after day...It really doesn't look all that bad...Overall shape is still discernible just has a hundred or more "divots" to fill, so it shouldn't be too hard to "fair out" and get smooth...



After the 1/8" of ablative coating was sanded off, the resultant divots were only a 1/16" deep on average so not much filler will be required...



Worse one was the big one in the front (first page) but even that one is less than an 1/8" deep..



I think the late afternoon "shadows" were making it look worse than it is in the first couple photos...

Plan is to fill and fair with Fiberglass Marine Filler and then a coat of Polyester Resin overall, scuff sand and then hard biocide finish...
