Re: re-finishing a hull
Posted by Howard on Jun 8, 2005
it is best to get all the paint off before applying epoxy. the epoxy protects the boat best when it actually soaks a bit into the surface of the wood. if there is paint..it will just sit on top of that.
was the boat you are refinishing not epoxied or glassed underneath the existing paint? if so...you only need to sand down to the old expoxy layer...not the wood itself
