  • Questions about Hull Prep

    Hello everyone,,
    I'm from Ressler and am new to the site. I have a Pacemaker 40 acmy that's out of the water at Green Cove Springs Marina in Northeast Florida. The bottom is covered with divots in the paint. They're dry and don't appear to be blisters and the bottom was almost perfect 3 years ago when I had the boat hauled to repair a bent shaft. I of the people at the marina told me not to worry about it and just paint it. I'm not allowed to post pics yet but will as soon as I'm allowed..

    Hmm...divots? As in there's indents? It's not in the bottom paint itself, is it? If it's still on the hard, never hurts to get a 2nd opinion, that's for sure. Pics will help folks around here a bunch, but nothing beats seeing it up close and personal. I, for one, would find someone that has seen them before and make sure it's "nothing to worry about", if for no other reason than peace of mind. Good luck and keep us posted...oh, and welcome to the forum! I'm over on the Nature Coast of Florida.

      Is it a cored hull? Could be voids between the core and laminate that have pushed in over time? Dunno, just throwing out ideas.
