But there was a small surprise once stripped. The surface is pocky in places. The folks here think the gelcoat wasn't properly done which made for the rough and pitted surface. But to properly deal with it means we need to fill those holes and pocks with an epoxy which will better seal the bottom.
So we're doing that now, and the process will cost us a couple of days before we can start painting.
|First we have to sand the surface, then apply the epoxy.
|The epoxy starts out blue, then turns pink when ready to sand.
