Please would anyone give there advice/past experiences for the treatment of varnished wood areas (quite extensive) in my newly aquired boat. ;o)
I think I have the varnish bit covered skill/ideas wise.. (but would like other advice please) but the other bit I have not got experience of is the outer shell appears to have been painted at some stage.. the white general colour is not horrificly laid on.. but there has been some blue added to some of the top body sections/running board areas... which needs re-doing as not been done very well.. any ideas/pland of attack/products/procedures please,... gratefully recieved. thanks.

Boat name: Blue Spirit II

If it is the area of the side decks, then the blue paint is probably anti-slip paint.

The bond between this paint and the white paint below, may have been done some time after the original white paint was applied and the correct preparation was not done.
Or it could be an incompatibility between the paint types.
If you can find out the original paint type of the white, this would help.
It looks as though you need to remove the blue down to the white and follow correct procedures for the new paint.
It doesn't sound an horrendous job, but one for the spring.
At least you can still use the boat whilst you are doing it.

best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.

thanks for help. I have some marine white gloss paint, plenty of wet and dry etc anticipate plenty of elbow grease.. i'll sort it.. overall just a cosmetic thing.. but we all like to get the best out of our boats. (mostly). Looking forward to getting back to her and get started and have a nice cruise.. Lets hope for a cracking spring/summer etc
