Pthtallic acid forms inside the blisters. In case you leave to dry, water will evoporate leaving the acid behind which will cause blisters later. Afcids are generally not good for the skin and eyes are more sensitive. Use protective measures.

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

The larger spots look delamination has occurred .If so I'd grind it out wash and dry and lay in some epoxy with filler and fabric. Good enough is good enough. You're not rebuilding a piano here. All those smaller blisters ,unsightly as they are, I'd consider cosmetic. Sail er ard and put er away wet.

Repair blisters using "Water Displacing Epoxies"

I've come across an outfit that seems to have a "better" ?? and cheaper solution than WEST.

These guys - Hull Blister Epoxy Fiberglass Boat Repair - Boat Pox - 603-435-7199 - totes a "Water Displacing Epoxy" as the basis for repairing blisters. This is a link to the company's "how to" page on repairing blisters

It certainly seems a better solution for those of us that don't have the luxury of letting a boat sit for a long time in the maintenance yard to dry out (the only boat yard that's got a yard on the lake I sail on is somewhat of a rip-off for maintenance space)

Does anyone have any experience with this or similar system. Does it make sense to just wash out the blister and then use a displacing epoxy?

I am not familiar with the construction of this boat - but from the look of these boats, they appear to be designed to dry sail.

I wouldn't do anything.

Do not do anything. These blisters are merely cosmetic and once underwater you won't see them. Almost anything you might try will probably end up worse than the problem and fixes rarely work for blisters.
I regret trying to fix blisters on my boats as I now think it was wasted effort.

Okay, I understand that. However, the only solution that will work is grinding off the gelcoat, drying it out and laying new glass or vinylester. If you just fill with epoxy, you have a very high likelihood it will come back.
