|Who knew to paint the prop with the same bottom paint as the hull? I do now.|
The bottom paint seemed to do a fine job of keeping growth off the hull but it is now completely used up and will have to be sanded down and repainted before splashing again. I also had no idea that the prop should be painted as well and there is a lot of barnacles on it that will have to be cleaned. The deck and cockpit will have to have the gelcoat cracks fixed and the soft spots on the deck corrected. I might paint the deck and cockpit with Awlgrip and add new anti-skid as well. This all depends on the gelcoat cracks and how extensive the soft core is. If I can just drill holes and fill with epoxy or if I will have to remove large sections of the fiberglass skin to replace the core. Time will tell.
Lots of work to be done but looking forward to all of it.
