If the process is still not well known, and lots are still
to reveal, you can imagine the amount of missinformation,
missunderstanding it has in a country like Brazil. Your
approach is really ingenious and I'm decided to fix my
beloved 40' boat using your inputs. This is a 10 years old
hull wich old owner reveal careless. I just started a repowering
process and I was surprised with blisters on the wet hull.
Although the total are around 200 in the hull, blisters are
big ones. Without sanding, they look like 80mm diameter,
some are well visible, some are flat. After sanding and
removing the delaminated fiber, they are 150 - 200mm diameter.
The deep seems shalow, acid appears mostly on second/third
layer, but some demanded me to sand 1/3 of the hull thickness,
until I found a clear and dry fiber.
I'd like to have a survey on the extent of damage, based on
your experience. Using meeters, labs, etc... is a dream much
far from our local reality.
At same time, I'd like also to discuss your franchising model
where I would promote among some boatyards. Pls. send me e-mail
with informations about training, tools, method, cost, etc ...
But don't forget to answer me about my boat's blisters, I need
your inputs to proceed by myself since there are almost none
knowledge on osmosis problems here.
