Painting info

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, a few months ago i pick up what seemed to be a steal of a deal... i bought a Sabre Crestliner 19 feet... i paid 1500$ with a galvanized trailer and the mercruiser engine and lower unit in great shape, i figured that the bought should be in good shape as well... in the last few months i stripped the whole boat and now im in the midst of rebuilding it, im getting ready to paint it soon and id like to know if i should sand the bottom of it bare and prime and paint, it seems to have a coat of anti-fouling... so i wonder how deep i should sans it before i repaint?

Thanks for your help.

Anti fouling paint is toxic and dry sanding sends clouds of dust in all directions, coats everything nearby and is a serious health hazard. Wet sanding is safer. If you dry sand it you will need a respirator and cover everything. The dust will etch into gelcoat. Don't ask me how I know...

Thanks for the info MikeNY but do i need to sand it down to the aluminum or do i need to only get to the original paint?
And before re-applying it should i repaint the bottom with primer and paint and then anti-fouling? Thank you.
