I would like to run this by the collective.
I'm going to have our boat repainted and started to remove the paint. Since a razor blade worked so well for varnish removal I gave it a try on the paint. It came off in sheets.
The surface appears to be the previous color that was not prepped well so my plan is to sand this with 120 and prime it.
In some area below the green near the rear where it was exposed to sun the paint was in poor shape four layers cam off. Some area went to primed wood and other left a coat of paint. Only the layers that came off with a bit of effort were removed. No sanding at this time.
Thinking this is a solid base I will sand and prime.
So the questions.
Better to keep up with the razor remove rather than just sand the top layer and paint?
What can I use to fair the hull in the areas where more than one layer of paint was removed - I don't want a wavy hull?
Use layers of primer or surfacing puddy?
Should I give up on the razor method and just take it all down to the same level with a lot of sanding?
as they say, it's all in the prep work.
Thanks in advance!
