The owner elected to strip the bottom and start fresh, so I made this my first task. After setting up and getting ready, I spent the day stripping all the old bottom paint from the starboard side, and a bit over half of the port side. I removed the bulk of the old paint with a carbide scraper and finished up with two sanding passes and two sanding grits to remove the remnants and finalize the bottom surface. The substrate was in good condition overall.
I’d finish up the last section next time.
