Re: Islander hull

i did a blister job on a 1979 islander 26. was impressive. ground each and every blister and filled and barrier'd and painted. was a lot of work. a re these small dry blisters or wet ones with holes. tunneling??? wet an d tunnelling need repaired the dry ones need to be monitored. my dry ones on my ericson were stable and didnot become wet nor did they tunnel.
my subsequent ericson had a few blisters with tunneling. i fixed those.
blisters donot make boat slow nor do they dink it. 1975 is early for blisters unless sprayed gelcoat.
my islander hull was thick enough to do the work, but trust me blisters are overrated.
