Default Bottom Job

Thinking of painting the bottom of my boat myself and was wondering what type of rollers, brushes, sandpaper grit,andbottom paint I needed to use,basically what are all thesuppliesI need. Is there any little trick to it? Any advice or trick to doing it would be greatly appreciated!!! Also, is Pelican Perch (Browns) marina the least expinsive place to pull it at? 31 foot

Default RE: Bottom Job

If your boat has existing antifouling and (no bubles in glass) it is somewhat easy

sand with 80 grit paper to expose good antifouling and roll on anouther coat

west marine , marine max boating stores carry antifouling paints

If you have bubles in glass whole differant story but still doable yourself

alot of us pull ours at Williams, pressure wash immediately coming out of the's not hard just labor intensive, go to West or use the net and figure out the basics. then search around and price your stuff
