Hard to believe based on my research that a hull with that many blisters does not have some hydrolysis of the laminates below.

All the top people and yards I researched, discuss very porous gel and breaches through it usually mean hysdrolysis.

My surveyor missed it all with a moisture meter and tapping hammer....be careful.

Hope you are sound.....

8 years fresh water, prior 4 in brackish the rest in salt, most likely spent 15 years in Florida waters, Larry.
Do you know how Krogen built the hulls for the Manatee's ? Seems like orange peel would indicate they used a male plug mould with the gelcoat sprayed on last to end up with orange peel finish.
I will be doing "incantations" to the gods of dry hulls as the paint and gelcoat is removed !

Bottom sand glass blasted today, incantations worked ! A dozen blisters ground out, nothing deeper then about 3/16", previous filling of blisters sound. Next step filling, sanding, then three coats of epoxy barrier paint then anti-fouling paint.
The prop has some minor pitting proable caused by a loose groung connection on the shore power caught 8 years ago during survey and corrected.

Great news . Ours has been out for bottom since mid July . Most the time just drying out . I think we had around 20 blisters or so . Also had some glass repair done . Should be back in in a couple weeks . Hope your project goes well .

Thanks, 20 blisters, that's managable Marty. Was your boat built before 1973 ? Much thought that builders got inferior resins after the oil embargo, and that was the start of the blistering problems.

Epoxy barrier paint going on today, first of three coats, perfect dry warm weather. Hoping to be back in the water in a few more days.
Hope your bottom job is going as well Marty.

Bill: You're going to have one sweet bottom on that boat! Where are you camped out to do the work?

Larry, I did DIY bottom jobs for 25 years of sailing so now that I'm in my " golden years " I'm letting the folks at Angler Marine at Goose Pond Marina, Scottsboro, Al. on the Tennessee river do the job. I'm very happy with the professional job they are doing.
Just notified we will be back in the water tomorrow.
Glad to see Matthew didn't visit your area except for some wind and rain. We will hope it doesn't do a return visit to Florida.

Looks great Bill . Very nice job . There must be something in the air on the Tennessee River , William is getting his first coat of epoxy barrier today . Mine has been out since July 18th . The weather has been perfect for paint .

I've always been a bottom kind of guy. Looks like a couple of sweet ones above. Smooth too!
