Re: OK, so I'm Sanding My Bottom...

Thanks...Took a little work but saved some boat bucks doing it myself...

Not bad for a $760 e-bay boat...

Got the trailer lights and brakes wired up...Just a few loose ends to tie up inside and out... ready to travel...



I can't believe in a week or so I might actually have to "Sail" this thing...

No mat. The fiber ends which touch the gel coat (porous membrane) form the "wick" which is the main cause of blisters in the first place.

In the fall, soda blast it and spend the winter cleaning it up.
Agreed only thing I might add is to put some mat and roving layers or at least chopped strand in any big holes

You might want to check into a gelcoat plane? like a electric hand jointer for shaving off gelcoat not sure who makes them but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable might have the intel
