Sonny-

That blister does not look super-bad (to me). You have it ground back to just beneath the 1'st layer of woven cloth (the structural glass) and if other blisters are no deeper than this you should be in fine shape. Typically strand-mat blisters dont cause major damage to the structural mat except where the strand-mat bonds to the first layer of cloth. If you look closely at the picture there is a dark edge along the interface between the mat and the cloth (along the bottom half of the circle). I'd be willing to bet that there is still some delam between the cloth and mat in this area; possibly around the top also. Try opening it up a bit further without grinding into the woven cloth to get rid of the delamination. If it goes much further than 1/2 inch from where you are now I would stop but usually it does not. Grinding out the delamination will reduce the chances of another blister forming between the mat and the structural cloth.

Also; keep washing down the hull, buy a $100 pressure washer and rinse the hull with fresh water every few days (unless you are applying epoxy). This will help the hull dry out by flushing out salt and allowing the styrene from the blisters to wash away from the open blister areas.

JMHO/HTH...

That looks pretty good, but a bit uneven as it doesn't look centered... The bunny suit is important to preserve your skin and prevent the fiberglass from driving you crazy...

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.

tapping

do you thank that it needs to go more left. I have been tapping the outer part of the blister to see were the blister ends and the good laminate starts back up. The blister sounds hollow and the laminate sounds solid.

Yes, more to the left and up... It appears that most of the grinding and beveling has been done to the right. Ideally, the beveled area should center around the original blister as much as possible.

Much better. Looks much more evenly beveled.

Thanks, now I know that I'm doing it some what right. I'll fix the other one and make sure the rest are done right as will.

Again I can't thank you enough for all the help.
