, but I just had a guy call me with a 39' Taiwanese sailboat.
He called and asked to have the bottom blasted.... We then talked a few minutes and I discovered he had the boat in the water
for the last 10 years down in Florida
and it never left the water
.... He also said the boats bottom is covered with blisters
of all sizes and he was thinking about having the boat blasted and peeled
I then told him he'd be better off just going directly to peeling followed by grinding of the blisters
and filling them with fiberglass
and resin... fair everything off and then roll a few coats of vinyl ester resin and two to three coats of Sea Hawk Huff Stuff barrier epoxy
Like I said... if the bottom is real ugly then peel it... it's just that I don't see many ugly bottoms and when I'm done with them they are usually beautiful.
