The Pearson's hull
is in desperate need of a good sanding
and polishing. Plus it has a stripe (not boot stripe, the one under rub rail) that is half worn off and the name on the boat (being changed) is a nasty cracked and faded decal. So yesterday I decided to dive in...not literally. Sanding
off the stripe wasn't terribly hard and getting the old decal off took patience and a heat gun. But sanding the hull
...geez Louise (that's the new name) that is tough. I was thinking if I could get a small boat I could shove the project
against one side of the slip and work from the small boat next to it. Also I've heard of healing the boat over in the slip using a halyard
or something, but not sure how to do that. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.
