No mat. The fiber ends which touch the gel coat (porous membrane) form the "wick" which is the main cause of blisters in the first place.

Re: OK, so I'm Sanding My Bottom...

Thanks...Took a little work but saved some boat bucks doing it myself...

Not bad for a $760 e-bay boat...

Got the trailer lights and brakes wired up...Just a few loose ends to tie up inside and out... ready to travel...



I can't believe in a week or so I might actually have to "Sail" this thing...
