Had enough of the weather so managed to get it in the garage so it properly dried off. Bit of a squeeze and had to evict one of my bikes to the garden, still needs must and all that. Found a little bit of nastiness on the hull but nothing too bad just going at it with filler and lots of sand paper now, this may take a while me thinks.....

Jizm... Do you plan on removing the tubes prior to painting, or will you just mask them off? Is there any chance the epoxy paint might damage the tubes?

I thought about removing the tubes but decided against it, going to mask them off. I don't know if the paint would damage them but layup resin does unless you get it off quick!

How old was the boat when you had it re-tubed? Were the original tubes polyurethane?

The boat was about 10 or 12 years old and the old tubes were PU. Everytime you fixed a leak, another sprung up somewhere else. I gave up in the end and had it re-tubed in 2001 with Hypalon.
