New boot stripe?
I'm refubishing the gelcoat on Scot 3879. Deck is coming along great, but I'll want to deal with the boot stripe in the process of doing the hull.
Mine is badly chipped, and appears to have been redone at least once, since there's a faded blue under brighter blue.
Any tips on removing the old paint? Wet sanding, maybe? I tried a chemical paint remover made specifically for fiberglass ... it removed the old boat name on the transom easily, but wouldn't budge the boot stripe.
And after it's removed, should I have a new stripe professionally applied, or is this something a patient amateur can do?
