I have a 37' sailboat with ablative bottom paint. The paint flaked off down to the gel coat in several areas after the post haul-out power wash. The boat was new in 2012. It was first painted in 2012 and a second coat was applied in spring 2013.

How should I best address this issue? Is it possible to locally prime / sand the affected areas to obtain a smooth surface? I am concerned about damaging the gel coat and obviously want to avoid stripping the entire bottom and starting over.

I am hoping that the combined experience of the Sailnet community can point me in the right direction.
