I really, really, really need some help!!

I need some help remedying a problem with my Hans Christian 33. Two weeks ago, I sanded what little varnish was left on the toe rail. Got it down to bare wood. Afterwards I hosed down the boat and went home (I live three hours away). I went to the boat again yesterday, and was horrified with what I saw. There were streaks running down the hull all along the boat! I am assuming I really did a poor job getting all the sanding dust off the boat. Is it possible that the varnish dust made it''s way into crevices along the toe rail, then, in the 85 degree heat, melted and ran down the hull? What do I do? How do I get my hull back to normal and looking good!? Am I going to have to paint the boat? I am still so distraught over this.

If any one has any suggestions I would really appreciate it! I thought about hiring someone to compound and wax the hull next week when I go back out to the boat. Is waiting another week going to make matters worse? Is compounding and waxing a good idea?

what to do, what to do?

thanks.......

I believe that your boat could be completely totaled. I suggest that you take her 10 miles off shore, open the sea cocks and make her a fish habitat. Next I would grovel on hands and kness to beg every boat owner on this BB for a ride this summer. This could cost you plenty! Take a chill pill dude!

No one can fill the deck shoes of the POPI. Hey assault what gives, you have a personal page but no text or photos. Tell us something about you and stop hiding behind those anonymous posts.

A had a similar problem on my O''Dday 25''- but was able to fix it without going near the sea cocks. Some things to try: Good soogie with non-abrasive detergent. Just compounding might get it done. Commercial stain remover from boating store (I''m sorry don''t remember the brand name, but the kind I used came in a white quart plastic spray bottle with black lettering. Was very effective on a 50'' President''s hull). A boat painter once suggested I use Easy Off oven cleaner to remove the previous owner''s artwork from the hull. It worked fine, and sometimes I use this method still for stubborn stain removal. This isn''t a first choice though- make sure you start small and use just short time as test. Don''t leave on longer than necessary. Whatever method you use, apply fresh wax to all effected areas. Good luck- Bruce
