        What was your sanding schedule on the bottom paint?

            Congrats on the purchase!!

            Aquastrip needs more than 2 hours. I've left it on over night and you can just powerwash the layers of paint off.

              Ugh! Wish I would have known that. I did get more bottom paint removed over the weekend, however bottom paint removal will now take a hiatus. I took a deposit on the Yamaha's yesterday, so now focus is on derigging yamaha's, hanging and rigging the Suzuki, and electronics install. Once I am functional I will likely get back to getting bottom cleaning.

              Justin I have used aquastrip followed by wetsanding; 400, 1000, 2000. I will follow that with 3M Finesse It and Collinite Marine Wax.

              It was getting dark so not a great pic, but not only does bottom paint line move...No More Rail...



              I had NFB cable steering and manual throttles on the 224, so this hydraulic steering and fly by wire controls is going to be like going from a classic VW bug to a Cadillac [8D].

                Congrats on the motor. exciting to see it come together. The Fly by wire is real nice. Just make sure you warn people that drive and make sure you learn how to adjust the tension.

                    Ughh, wish you asked...

                    Just throwing options out there, but when I gel'd my 22, I used 3M Gelcoat compound. I thought it did a nice job. I only went up to 800 and then compound

                          [:0] That's a nice blast from the past. I don't have time for a work space, the family is counting on me to have a functioning boat for Spring Break in 3 weeks.

                            Looks much better without the bowrail. Congrats on the new power, I keep telling people looking at new boats to buy an old boat and put new power on it.
