Bottom Job Final Finish, Episode 21

Episode 21 pt3 bottom

Applying the first coat of Black Widow bottom paint.

Whew, the bottom is done.  Be prepared to take twice the time you think plus to do a quality bottom job.   You can not rush the sanding.  But the Merka products discussed last week help make the job easier.

Hopefully you can follow my recommendations in the video and save yourself days of sanding, and come out with a bottom job you will be proud of.

The Pettit products are great, and I think Black Widow bottom paint is the new standard.  Being able to buff out the surface with Merka Aberlon pads and water makes a shinny smooth finish.  I will check back in the summer series with how well the antifouling properties are from the paint.

Enjoy the final phase with part three video here.
