Re: how much to bottom paint /epoxiy to remove

Stripping a hull is one of a yards biggest con especially on a newbie. I would just fix the blisters, and bottom paint. However, now the yard has sanded/ground down to the bear hull, I would be pissed. As now that area has to be built back. If what ever is on the bottom is adhering, so that it has to be sand/grind off that is good enough as is shown in the picture. If you pull every year keep an eye on it, if you do not pull every year hire a diver to clean/check the bottom.

Also in the future make sure you pull at a yard that allows you and/or other out side help to work on your boat. That way if you not happy with them, you can fire them and hire somebody else.

"Wash" the bottom paint off the white layer with acetone or toluene and a rag. If the solvents don't touch the white, it's barrier coat. Then check the ares where the white has peeled off, same way. If the paint under the barrier coat dissolves, you have a problem.
