We rented the best professional pressure washer we could find to blast the antifouling bottom paint off our boat. It worked AMAZING for most of it… Power washing the hull was step 1 since it just didn’t get enough of it off. We need to get down to bare gelcoat for inspection and peace of mind.
Anybody want to do the math to figure out how many square feet of bottom paint we have to deal with!?

Thanks for watching-

With love

Here’s what we *think* we know about her past. Keep in mind we bought her at auction without ever meeting the owner! The owner was sailing along and ran aground – hard. Hard enough that the keel pivoted and pushed the aft end up into the hull. This force cracked the internal grid in several places and broke a portion of the grid free from hull. At some point an inspection was done, insurance was called and decisions were made. See for how we came to own her!
