Boat is out of the water
and I'm doing my first blister repair job. Read lots of articles online and on this site and I think I have a fair handle on what to do. During the pre-purchase survey
, they only found a few small blisters
. I found lots more and much bigger ones. I thought they would be just below the gelcoat
but i found them slightly deeper, about 1/8 of an inch or slightly more. I will try to add pictures to show you.
Some suggest cloth to be applied to deep blister, What is a deep blister? The hull
is slighty less than 3/4 of an inch think full fiberglass
. for the more shalow ones I will be using thickend West System epoxy
with silica (microbaloons for the final fairing)
anyhow, if the pictures show up you will have an idea of what I am faced with.
**Question** Would filling be ok or should I apply layers of glass (for the really large ones I will apply glass)
The yard owner said that the reason for the really big ones were probably that the PO's never bothered with them.
I know a peel and recoat would be best but can't do it at this time.
