Repainting Hull

I just acquired a damage Infinity 54. After repairing, I’m thinking of repainting hull. I was wonder how members have tackled sanding down old paint and repainting hull.

well I repainted my Seawind last year…of course it’s just a “plastic” hull, but I guess it should be the same way for other materials.

  1. wet-sanding using 180…way down to 400.
  2. primed, after wet-sanded it with 400
  3. waited one week to let it dry
  4. painted with the wanted color…waited a week
  5. light wet-sanding, then gloss…again waited a week…

Nice looking paint job, did you use a power sander or by hand?

all by hand!!!
