I bought that POS (wont use the famous brand name) tool at Home Depot and took it back about 11 minutes later

While it works pretty good on the side of your house it MAKES A DUST STORM beyond human comprehension and is all together useless at NOT going through gelcoat

Belive me i wanted it to work in the worst way as you can see how many HUNDREDS of pounds of old paint i removed to refit Seafever

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
