BarryL,
We went through the similar process but used Interprotect 2000E. We had about 10 yrs of bottom paint, hired someone to soda blasted but still had a lot of sanding to do.. We also had poorly repaired blisters completed by the previous owner that needed to be redone.
A lot of work! To clarify, a lot of hard work.

Great job. I never used Poliglow before.

Hello,

The Poliglow kit comes with a cleaner called Poliprep and you can also buy PoliOx. These are cleaners that remove oxidation. I used that on the hull before the Poliglow.

BarryL,
How did you get rid of the "scuff" marks on the white topsides in photos 3 & 4 before you applied the poliglow?
Thanks

Thanks for your post in the other thread pointing here.

I have an '87 Oday 35 (it would be interesting to compare HINs), and am about to go through the same process.

Last year, I sanded the bottom with 80 grit, and applied 2 coats of WestMarine CPP in the spring. All looked good when I splashed. However, after she was hauled, the paint started falling off. It appears as though the original bottom paint (no one knows how old) continued to decay, and flaked off - in big chunks. Right now I have about 3 square feet where I can see the original Gelcoat (it looks good too!).

Thanks BarryL -- All updates appreciated

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the chronology, complete with photos! Please let us know how the spring redo of the Poli-Glow goes.

Poliglow

Hello,

I have used Poliglow on a few boats. IMHO, it holds up well. I haven't had yellowing problems. Again, I think that wax looks better, but Poliglow is much easier to apply.

My boat was hauled in November, and the hull still looks shiny. There are some marks on it from the dingy rub rail, dock incidents, etc. In the spring I will strip off the bad poliglow and then apply fresh.

FWIW, the grey hull of our O'day 322 still looked great when we sold the boat a year after we applied poliglow.

alaskaboy Barry,
Good job and a lot of satisfaction I'm sure. I covered up a lot of ugliness with 3 coats of bottom paint recently but will use your example in 2-3 years when the paint in coming off.
