Trojan Sea Skiff Bimini Bottom Painting

Post by Osyn »

Hi Everyone. I have a 1967 Trojan that I am bottom painting back to it's original black color. It has been restored so my question is this. How do I go about getting the old paint off (or do I?) and fixing any imperfections to the hull of this boat? Also, many have told me I do not need to soak this plywood bottom for long. Is that true or are they wanting me to sink!! Thanks to all

Without knowing the paint condition its hard to say . If the paint is not real bad some light sanding and repaint it . If its bad then of course heavier sanding . redo caulking as needed . Soak time is hard to say it can vary boat to boat . Make sure batteries and pumps are good .
