: dear bengt,
: i have owned the boat for 7 years, had it surveyed, reading 'moderate moisture'. had it all anto fouling taken off then & antifouling re-applied, 3 years later it was dried out again, this time only sanded down & again new antifouling applied. onn both of these occassions the work was done by someone else. i do not know who or when the 'possible' gelshield got applied. apart from the fact that i know that prior to my purchase the boat had not been looked after for some time i have no other information

O.K. Bennie, kmy advise is to sand down the blisters, apply antifouling and sail for another year ot two. Then check again and if there are blisters, open some when they are wet and check for acid with a blue lithmus paper strip which you can buy in a drug store. If the strip becomes orange or red I recommend a HotVac treatment.
Regards Bengt
