Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Maine Sail,

I plan on following your post to "t" on a 1985 Catalina 36 that has medium oxidation. I plan on also wetsanding the hull prior to applying the compound. My question is how much Presta product should I order to complete the job? How much time should I allot? I am a complete novice at this.


Looking for opinions... pulled the boat out of the water and found a dozen or so 2-4" blisters on the starboard side. They appear purely cosmetic and have not changed in size over the last couple of years. Everyone has their own opinion, but I am thinking about just leaving them and just apply a couple of fresh coats of bottom paint. I never heard of a boat sinking due to blisters. Any thoughts?
