Agree w/above statement. It reminded me of an old school
scraper w/ a vacuum attachment. Hard work
and may work
better on ablative than hard bottom paint
. Everyone should try it at least once to appreciate/know how it works.
Depending on your bottom condition, a chemical stripper or vac. sander makes life much easier to get the bottom done, If a high build up of bottom paint
, may start w/the chemical stripper to get the majority of paint
off, followed up w/some sanding
If you get a vac. sander try to get a better one that has some power and variable speed settings. There are many cheaper, feeble disc sanders being sold
these days and we now like a 5" Porter Cable. Has plenty of power and a good vac. attachment.
