Sanctuary Gets A New Bottom

DSE_1665

 

Sanctuary had some peeling bottom paint, blisters and bottom issues.   So we decided those needed to be corrected before we leave on the loop.

The major steps were:

  1. Boat was sand blasted in fall after haul out
  2. Remainder of old paint and poor gel-coat removed via sanding
  3. Blisters opened with grinder and sander
  4. After drying out, the bottom was filled and faired with West Epoxy
  5. Bottom re-sanded after filling
  6. Filled again and re-sanded some more…..
  7. Swim platform removed  and refinished
  8. Bottom painted with Pettit Protect High Build Epoxy Primer   (Three coats – Gray, White, Gray)
  9. Swim platform reinstalled
  10. Bottom painted with INTERLUX Micron CSC Anti fouling Paint (Three coats – Black Blue Blue)
  11. Boot strip repainted.

This short list translates into many, many, many, hours working under the boat.

I MUST thank good friends Scott Devoll, Henry Kuyt,  and nephew Jeremy Payne for helping with this daunting task.

Here are a few images of the steps and progress.
