help Restoring Small Old Fibreglass Boat
My buddy and i have been looking for a small boat to fish out of in the summer. We recently found a small (10' x 4') rowboat/dinghy. The boat is fiberglass and is in rough shape. I am wondering if anyone has any tips, links, etc on how to do the project.
The paint is very scratched and faded, with small grooves (looks like its been dragged over gravel) all over the bottom. There are a few small cracks, but in general the hull is in fantastic shape.
We are looking to repair, paint, and redo all the wood in the boat.
What i am thinking is that we sand the whole boat (what grain of paper do we use, is it ok to sand or are there stripping products that would work better or be used in addition do sand paper)
Once its is sanded, what product should I use to fill in the scrapes and knicks ?
Any ideas would be welcome.
