53′ Forbes Custom Carolina

This 53′ 1990 Irving Forbes was in need of a bottom job. The top sides were painted the previous year and the old bottom paint created a rough running surface. The boat was glassed over wood and there were some areas that needed attention due to previous spot repairs that had glass/fairing extending over old antifoul paint. The hull was blasted over the course of 3 days exposing the areas in need of repair, and moisture in the hull was clearly visible and marked. When blasting the hull with a dry media, the dust created sticks to the moist areas of the hull like cake batter. The most common problem areas on the glass over wood boats is the keel in the areas where the boat was blocked.
