When I pulled my 1976 vintage boat this fall there were an exceptional number of silver dollar size blisters. Upon investigation (grinding) some/most were connected. I then made the decision to have the bottom pealed due to the extent of the blistering, at which time it wept a brown liquid. I then proceeded to break open the wet spots to assist in the drying of the hull and wash it weekly to remove the crystallised particles. Now I am finding that there are sections of glass, which are a couple of Feet Square that are not laminated to the next piece. I can stick my scrapper right in and have removed some spots which are about 1 foot square.
Any comments on continuing to remove all these sections then prep and repair or can these be left, and the areas that have been opened repaired with a new layer of glass or epoxy depending on the size then appropriately sealed?
As a follow up not this was her second season in fresh water, and there were minimal blemishes this past spring.
Advice is appreciated;
