I'm sanding the hulls of my 1984 Hobie 16 in preparation for a fresh coat of paint...I was able to remove an adhesive stripe using a hair dryer, but the lower 1/3 of each hull is green and does not respond to sand paper or the hair dryer. It doesn't seem to be paint and I'd guess that it is another adhesive - possibly meant to protect the bottom portion of each hull from dings and scrapes when beaching.

Is anyone familiar with what I'm talking about? Should I figure out a way to remove it before repainting?

There are parts of the green patch that have worn down and show the white hull beneath...

Thanks for your help,

Gabe

Sounds like it might be bottom paint. Was the boat ever kept in the water?

Not sure if it was kept in the water or not - I'm the 3rd owner to my knowledge.

I'm hand sanding this bad chicken - think I should do my best to sand through the mystery green?

Thanks,

G
