Hello Again everyone... Thanks for the responses to my last post. I have a few questions for all of you...
Project Info: 1965 28'Owens Flagship with a 225 Flagship V8, hull is about 95% sound and needs only minor repairs, unsure of engine and out drive, all electrics and tanks seem sound
This boat needs a lot of TLC, much of the forward trim is rotted, as well as some decking. Interior needs to be gutted and redone. And the entire boat needs to be repainted. This sounds like a lot of work for an old plywood clunker but I only paid $500 for it!!! Anyway on to the questions...
What is the best method for striping the old paint?? I am guessing I will need to strip it down to the wood to determine if any rot exists below the paint?? Suggestions please???!!!
When I am ready to paint again, what are my options as far as sealing with some type of epoxy?? I want to restore her to original so I will need something that will not interfere with that.
And lastly, what are the recommended fasters for this application?? SS or Galvanized???
Thanks to everyone who responds!!!!
