Hull Cleaning

I took a day out to spend cleaning the hull on my Valiant today, it was sat in a river for 5 years before I got it and was black, well, still is in places. I've used Y-10 to get the worst of it off and will get my polisher out to get the rest off with a fine compound, only problem is having to work underneath in a confined space - any ideas?

It also has a fair few blisters in the gel, I'm happy to fix them, but again, access is a problem, the tubes have a limited life and it's off for a seam repair next week with a view to re tubing in a couple of years so I my have the opportunity to turn it over and do all the work then, I think/hope it's worth all the work.

jack it up and pull the trailer out. use a few beer barrels and some scrap 9 x 4 under the keel. you can even tilt it from side to side.

Take it easy ....but, take it all the way.
