You probably won't notice the difference until you look close.
I took a power spray machine to the hull of Scarlette today. Some of the bottom paint -- which I plan to strip off with Zip Strip after we return from vacation -- started coming off.
I've definitely got my work cut out for me. But I'm considering scaping the bottom then waiting until I'm done with the topside refurbishment before painting.
The anti-fouling paint I bought -- of course red -- cost 12,000 yen a gallon. About a $120. Icky told me that one-gallon should do it and that I should apply three coats.
Well off on vacation. Will return to Scarlette and updates next Wednesday.
