Hey all I am looking at 1969 Soling, it is a good deal price
wise but will require a little work. I would like to get it on the water
this season in the next few weeks and am looking for advice.
localized flaking in a few spots. It was painted a few years ago, I am wondering if I can just sand those spots and do localized repair for this season? Then do a more permanent repair in the winter. I would be storing the boat in a freshwater lake.
The other option is to totally redo the bottom paint
. In this case it depends on what product you use, VC17 would require everything to be stripped and interprotect 2000e to be applied. Very labor intensive, although necessary because there are a few spots of localized bubble but none are wet and all are less then a dime size.
The other redo option is to sand the spots that have chipped away paint
and just sand the rest of the surfaces generally and overcoat the entire boat in antifouling paint like performance epoxy
I uploaded a couple of pics to get your opinions. Let me know
