Re: Is this a Good Sander for Bottom stripping

Can't advice you on a specific sander with that said, relating to bljones comment. I used a 1/4 sheet sander this spring on the hull, it work fine. Keep in mind that some of the 1/4 sheet sanders have holes built into the pad and motor driven vacuum assist to feed the dust into the dust bag/shop vac attachment, a must IMHO. As well a 6 inch sander is approx 30-40 percent more sanding area over a 5 inch, something to keep in mind.
One last point this is a newish thread floating around here about the same topic, it was brought up a a drywall sanding screen does a good job. I have no personal experience with this method and can't find the thread, just something else to consider.
