I have my Starcraft upside down, and in the garage. I need to know best method / process to remove the current waterline and below, and make it shiny and new. I live in Tennessee, on Kentucky Lake, boat stays on trailer 80%, at dock, in slip 20%, not on a lift, in the water. Boat's previous owner lived in NY, boat had some salt water exposure. I have pictures, can take more, will post. please input as needed: Should I : 1. Strip off old paint, and corrosion?---suggest product, process or 2. Sand off old paint and corrosion--suggest grit sizes, I know the process, but tips welcome. I plan to go down to bare metal, don't know if necessary, but I will. Currently the boat does not leak, but paint and corrosion removal may create pinholes, so next step should be? 3. Use Gluvit on entire bottom to seal--if I have no holes, cracks, or deep pitting, will I still require Gluvit? Or is Gluvit a good idea, regardless? 4. Prime-- yes or no? If yes, suggested product? 5. Paint---- Please suggest paint, roll or brush, or does it matter? 6. Please detail any required steps that I left out due to my lack of experience. please pardon my detail, but this is all totally new to me, I have zero experience in this regard, but ability, and time, plus no local shop to do it for me! thanks Lane Douglas tried to load pictures, will continue to try.
