Re: New here and need amy boat identified,

As Jeff_H suggested, we need to know the length of the hull to make more informed guesses.

The answer is always: it depends.

Removing old, chipping paint will only make your final paint job better. How you remove it is up to you.

Re: New here need help

You'd be lucky to find a sucker to give you 200 bucks for that Sea Snark.

Ask for $50. See what happens.
