I am looking to haul my sailboat out for a bottom job. It will be the first time i do this since i bought her, so i don't know what type of bottom paint
is down there other than it is an ablative paint
which is almost gone in some places exposing the grey primer. I want to go with ablative paint
again this time, but given the uncertainty of the previous paint, i don't really know what to do. I've considered from what i have read to sand as much as possible and use primocon and painting over it. Or using a chemical stripper and starting all over from scratch. My aim is to do the job correctly in order to get the most bang for my buck, and not have to re-haul for this reason sooner than expected.
