Re: Suggestions for my next boat

Re: Hull Cleaning - "the mustache"

Iron out. Get it at any home improvement store. Comes in powder form. Mix with water and wipe it on with a sponge then rinse. I have had good luck with it.

Re: Painting a boat trailer

I like that plan. I have everything apart that I can and am fixing bent and broken stuff. Then sandblast and paint. Thanks for the feedback!

Re: Painting a boat trailer

So far it looks like rustoleum. I am stripping down all the rusted areas to the bare metal and sanding the rest. Planning to roll on the paint instead of spraying. Thanks for the feedback!

Re: Why paint instead of gelcoat?

The duratec is a reactive thinner according to their information. It mixes 1:1 with gelcoat, then with 2% mekp. If you still need to thin, use styrene thinner, not acetone. I shot it with a cheap...
