Hi all... the previous owners sanded back to the barrier coat and put three coats of bottom paint
(at one time) at least 2 years ago and it's been on the hard
for a year.
To be fair it looks in good shape in most places, but I have noticed what a friend calls 'mud cracks' along the top edge (and through about 6 or eight inches down) where the sunlight can hit it through the water
... and it's quite thick right there which I'm told also leads to the problem.
It literally just chips away right back to the glass. I can certainly sand these areas back and repaint them if that's the best thing to do... but I guess I'm a little concerned that the new coat will also crack off at the barrier coat elsewhere on the hull
How do I know were the damaged areas extend to? And how do I know if I need a completely new coat everywhere - and if I DO need a whole new coat, do I have to sand down the entire hull
back to glass since this current paint
is so thick?
Sorry - don't have a photo
but can take one when I'm back at the yard tomorrow.
