no, but that sounds like a plan, do you use it neat or diluted, never used it before ?

your tubes what did you do with them , as it will be good to take a pattern of them , because I have a 5.4 and was thinking just putting another layer of hypalon over the old tubes but some advice will be great

Cleaning a hull from growth - wait for it to dry?

I was doing it by hand, with coarse wet n dry. What's the best method to get a good clean finish, any help would be much appreciated
It's like a staining in the gelcoat so the only way really is to take it back with wet and dry paper going up the grits to about 1500 grit and then a polish with some farcia 300 grp polish

hi Tim, sorry mate, not much left of them to be honest, I wasn't thinking about them being of any use when I cut the off the hull, so a bit of a mess really. but your the 2nd person who has asked about them, they are going to a new home on Saturday, so if you want to do anything it will need to be tommorrow night

thanks Whisper, I have tried wet n dry today, did get some success, but took a long time to do a small patch, n to be honest I'm not up to that much work at the moment, still getting over the chemo therapy. is a orbital sander an option with the suitable wet n dry ?

I use a small air powered sander now on bigger projects with about a 2" disk, however I did use a 5" sander on my sr4, have a read it might help you:
