: Hello Jake,
: My advise is: Sand the hull as even as possible. Paint the top sides with a normal
: one component laquer which is the most simple to repaint when it is scratched.
: Paint the bottom with antifouling only. Don't waste money on any kind of "protective"
: coating. Especially not vinyl ester which is very sensitive for the acids formed by
: the hydrolysis process which it can not stop. As a proper repair to stop the hydrolysis
: process is far too expensive compared to the value of this hull, doing nothing more than
: what I recommend will keep it alive longer than any kind of expensive "shielding"
: Regards Bengt
