|sailingdog||You can get them at most home improvement stores. I think I got mine at Home Despot... or Lowe's. You can also get them from JamesTown Distributors. They also make a hell of a good start on a decent Halloween costume. JTD is a bit cheaper than Home Despot currently, but I got mine on sale for abit less than either.|

Where'd you pick up that full-face mask/respirator?

|sailhog||I think I'll skip the mask and respirator so that I can blame my behavior on the inhalation of 20 coats of ablative paint. It might get me off the hook for some of the inappropriately lude comments I made about TB's dog...|

I wish I had a full face-mask respirator like SD's - would be a big improvement on using eye protectors which always seem to fog up. I do use a 3M dual cartridge respirator though - have been for over 10 years of bottom painting and home shop work.
Many years prior to that though, I only used standard nose/mouth paper filters. Who knows what nasties became imbedded in my lungs and chemicals ingested into my blood system? It might explain my sometimes erratic behavoir.

As someone who has been doing a fair amount of work on the bottom of his boat, one thing I highly recommend that you get is a full-face dustmask/respirator, like this one pictured below. It doesn't fog up as much as goggles and a half-face mask, and it keeps the grit and gunk out of your eyes much better.
You probably won't need to have a bunny suit, unless you're allergic to the bottom paint, since it generally isn't as bad as fiberglass is. The bunny suits are hot and sticky. Earplugs are highly advised as well... keeps the crap out of your ears and has the benefit of protecting your hearing.

|RAGTIMEDON||Another thing to factor in to the cost equation--- Ben Franklin said "A penny saved is a penny earned" but that was so long ago that they had virtually no taxes. Saving that thousand bucks is as good as earning 1600 in today's economy!|
