that's going to require a pretty good inventory of rum!

they look like osmosis bubbles to me

polyester frp gets those when left too long in the water, like at a mooring

like pimples

don't pop them... they are not that slow

you wouldn't notice the difference

Yep, they're osmotic blisters. After having fixed a couple thousand of them on a monohull once, I can tell you the best way to fix them is with a gallon of gas and a match.

Do you moor this boat or dry sail it? If you moor it, you're not only going to have to fix them, you'll have to prevent them from from recurring in the future.

Either way, you're looking at a substantial amount of work.

Once the boat reaches puberty they will go away...

Wish I had 25 cents for every hour I've spent sanding boats!

Yes the work has started! its not that bad, if i can stop being so lazy after work! I am having a hard time figuring the water line out! I don't want to go up to high! I am filling hole re sanding then just painting it! Would you guys use something else on the bottom before the Bottom paint?
I am gonna Dry sail it like You Hobie guys do at a Lake near me until i get good at taken down the mast and rigging it , i would love to go to other lakes for a day! then packup and go home!

Going to another lake for a day with a boat like that could make for a long day. But I don't want to burst your bubble. Personally I like the bigger beach cats, for the room and flotation. I'm on the large side so I can pitchpole something like a hobie 16 while moving at 0 knots, on the beach.
I just looked through some old posts and think you bought my old boat. You bought it from Phil, in GA, right? If so, 99% of the blisters are a new modification.

What are you filling the holes with? I found interlux watertite to be the easiest to work with.

What goes on under the bottom paint depends on what bottom paint you're going to use. If you're going to dry sail it I'd go with something hard, without anti fouling properties. I used interlux performance on mine, it worked out well. If you use a 2 part paint like that you'll need to use a 2 part primer. Two part paints cost considerably more but last longer.

For the waterline, make a mark on the point of the bow where you think the waterline should be. Stick a piece of masking tape to where you think it should go on the back corner of the boat where side meets the transom. Roll out enough tape to reach to the front of the boat. Stand away from the boat so that the tape is only stuck on the back corner. While holding the tape tight, move toward the bow, trying not to move the end of the tape up and down, and stick it to the mark you made in front. You should end up with a straight line from bow to stern. Unless you rub the tape to stick it on good, you should be able to pull either end off and make adjustments. Unless you pull the whole length off when adjusting, you'll end up with a wavy line.
There may be a better way, but that's what I figured out through trial and error. You'll want to use fine line tape, not regular masking tape.

A couple other ways would be to use a transit. You would need a friend to make marks every 6 inches or so and another would be using a laser. Both can be rented.


Have Fun

Yes Matt i got it from Phil in Macon Ga.
so this was your boat, did you like it, we did assemble it with phil took it for a sail! It was a little work to setup but i was taken pictures and videos. just so i can remember how to rig it and where the all the sheets go.. I am using Stran Fibre to fill the holes it dries like in 4 min. so i have to use a little at a time. i am using this paint http://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-20..._4?ie=UTF8&qid=1326847514&sr=8-4

Good luck with the sanding! It is a lot of work but always a reward when you are finished and look and the end product and smile! I'm spending the week-end sanding the keel of my boat hoping to be ready for lay-up in the next few weeks.
