We are finishing off the jobs needed to get the boat out of the cold and down to Mexico
(pacific side). You always hear stories about how cheap
things are in Mexico
so we are thinking of saving the our bottom job till we get there.
We need to strip about 5-8 layers of ablative, drain and fill any blisters
(none showing now), epoxy
coat and re paint
The plan would be to strip it (or have someone do it), let it dry all summer on the hard
and finish it in the fall.
Where should we go to do this. So far research
is telling me San Carlos
. Any other opinions?
Anything we should take with us? Paint
? Stripper? Epoxy
? Can we get these things down in Mexico?
If we wanted a local to do the work do we trust the yard or rely on someone outside of the yard? I expect we would make sure the stripping was finished before we left for the summer.
Anyone done this? Tell me how it worked out. Basic costs (per foot?) would be appreciated.
