Pox and Epoxy Neophytes

We have the boat up on the hard stand for 3 months and want to repair some osmosis blisters.
We are in the tropics but it is winter and the dryest time of the year.
Just wondering if any of youse guys have battled these things before, and what was your plan of attack?

We did our boat 22 months ago. Did you peel or sand blast the bottom? Are you washing the bottom off and scrubing with water every couple of days? It is a big job.
