The previous owner painted the boot stripe about 6" above the waterline. Even with us fully loaded, we are still at 4". The bottom and hull
are currently white (Micron Extra) and Awlgrip. The boot stripe is black. We want to change bottom paint
to a black bottom paint
. I want to paint
a 3/4" white stripe below the boot stripe to give the transition contrast. I really do not want to remove all the bottom paint
from below the boot stripe to paint a second white separator stripe. Can I simply scuff sand the upper bottom paint and lay on a new boot stripe? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
