Re: Wood work, bottom paint, keel bolts on Pearson 26
Oh-also, stripping/scrapping didn't work so well on the kell that has a lot of bumps and is not flat enough. I found a sandblaster for rent and it looks like it would be perfect for the cast iron. Once down to the bare metal and the rust removed, would Interpro 2000 be ready to be applied or is there a better thing to keep corrosion away and prime for anti fouling paint ? Not a lot of DIYers around in my town.. Thanks for all the help !
Definitely sandblast the keel, then immediately
solvent wipe it and coat it with epoxy resin. This has been discussed in detail on the link below.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
