Re: Low maintenance Routine for 20 year old hul

There's lots of thin...

Re: Low maintenance Routine for 20 year old hul

Re: Sanding disc question

About the only way to tell when a sanding disc is used-up or "spent" is to watch as you sand for slurry to appear. Slurry is the water and abraded gel-coat which makes a milky looking film on the...
