Bottom Paint for trailerable question
Ok, so we brought her home yesterday. It's a 1980 Catalina 22 on a trailer and I'm thrilled !!!
She's going to need a bottom job before she goes in the water. We plan to keep it in the water at the lake during the season and pull her out during the winter (that will probably be 9 months in the water and three out).
The old bottom paint will have to be stripped all the way to the gelcoat as there are so many layers that it's starting to flake off, in some other areas the bottom paint has ware off all the way to the gelcoat.
What will be the best paint to use for the circumstances?
I know to ask the local people to see what they use, but I wanted to gather some opinions as pros and cons on the different options before I ask so I can ask educated questions to the locals.
