I know I know, Search the Threads!

I did the search on Awlgrip hulls, repair and touch-up. Now I am looking at a Pearson 36 (because you all beat me down about my predujice against them) and it has an older Awlgrip hull that has dulled according to the (lying snake) broker. I'm sure he means completely abraided, but anyway...can a dull Awlgrip hull be brightened without re-painting? If not, can a new paint job be done with Imron? Would this involve completely sanding down the hull (I think I know that answer). ROM on the dollars for a 36 footer?

Thanks,
Freeman

You can use Poli-Glow or something like that - which is basically an acrylic wax-type of product, or you can buff it with a rubbing compound and a buffer if the paint is still thick enough

You can buy Awlgrip - better to use the same product

You would need to sand the hull smooth and abrade the existing finish enough to allow the new finish to stick to it. Around here, sending the boat in for Awlgrip runs about 175 per foot for the topsides and 225 per foot for the deck.

1. You can do poliglow but don't expect miracles...and it will have to be re-done annually or so.
2. Would suggest Awlcraft2000 instead which is similar to Imron in performance.
3. Yes, hull will need to be faired and prepped but should not be too bad since it has been done once.
4. My guess for a 36 footer is around 8-9k if you stay out of annapolis!

I would agree that Awlcraft is the way to go, as it is far more forgiving than Awlgrip. The paint job, since it is Awlgrip, is basically toast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Everything I've read is that AwlGrip, once it's been abraded, is about impossible to get and keep glossy again. Somebody, somewhere, not long ago, explained why. Our hull was done in AwlGrip years ago, according to the PO. It concerns me.

We'll be wanting to paint the decks some day. (My wife is thinking this fall or next spring. I dunno...) I'm thinking AwlCraft or Imron. Need to study.

Look up recent posts by halekai. He had an excellent dissertation on the subject recently, complete with photos that frankly embarassed the rest of us.
