Down and DIRTY.... Starting to Strip the Old Bottom Paint off...

I have put this off as long as I could... Yesterday I started the long dirty job, grinding the paint off the keel.... after about 5 hours over 2 days and a dozen disks, I have finished stripping the keel.... Now I can make the repairs and get it ready for new bottom paint....












Today I tested the chemical stripper that I will use on the rest of the bottom... It seems to work well.




Today Brian came by to see what he needed to do some aluminum welding for me.... Early next week I hope we can get started at the welding jobs....
