36′ Yellowfin

This 36′ Yellowfin was painted with Pettit Vivid white ablative, but there was a problem with the adhesion of the first coat. The pictures show the paint lifting from the gel coat. It looked as if there was a attempt to de-wax the hull prior to the initial paint, but the wax may have just been spread due to continual use of dirty rags.(in the 4th pic you can see the evidence) The hull was blasted leaving a etched surface ready for new paint without damage to the gel coat.
