: I have just hauled my boat out and discovered
: a number of small blisters in the paint over the
: gelcoat but none in the gelcoat itself. The gelcoat
: has a layer of primer over it, then about three
: layers of Interspeed 2000 (hard) and it had 4 layers
: of CSC Micron (ablative) which eventually wore away.
: The liquid in the blisters does smell vinegary.

: The boat is a 1982 Maxi 108 and there don't
: seem to be any previous osmosis repairs to it.

: Since the gelcoat isn't affected, is this osmosis,
: and do I need to consider treatment before anything
: else? Also I am in Malta, and in the event I need
: HYAB attention which is the closest place to turn to?

: Many thanks for your attention
