When working with fiberglass/bottom paint/etc you really need a good respirator. The disposable dust masks aren't really appropriate for that use IMHO. You really should have worn something like this:



or, better yet, this:

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.

Yeah.

That would have helped.

A lot.

I had this:



and this:



Even, so, I highly recommend just using this:

When I had to remove the paint from my boat, I used :



and got the boat sodablasted. Much more efficient.

Aha!

I did the whole thing.

With one of these:



and a couple zillion of these:



Yeah, woulda been much easier to get someone else to (at least) remove the bottom paint for me, but I had some blistering / etc. It was my first haul out as owner, a few years ago.

And hell, what did you need the mask for if you didn't do any sanding?

Anyway, doing the bottom for The Admiral and I means we each take a week vacation, drive to PC, and live on the boat, while it's on jack stands, in a yard, working on the bottom, until it's done. Entirely un-worth-it.

Who said I didn't do any sanding??? I just minimized the amount of sanding I had to do.
