Is the drywall sander effective on sanding through the existing barrier coat or just the existing ablative paint? I have called around and it is not too expensive to rent one.

I also read in another forum that someone used the drywall screen on a wooden handle and rinsed it in water frequently. Is that comprable to the vacum sander?

Thank you!
1. Pay someone else to do it, it's a crappy job.

2. Why a new barrier coat ? whats wrong with the old one ?

3. How big a boat ?
