Author Topic:   Refinishing the interior

I am new to the world of Boston Whalers and have just purchased a 1979 13'8" BW. The previous owner had painted the interior with some sort of non-nautical paint (latex ?)and it is flaking off in very small chunks everytime it gets wet or rubbed. What is the best method to get this old junk off (stripper, sander, etc) and what should I use to paint/refinish it afterwards ? Part2 of this question is: Am I better off (financially) having this done professionally or is this a fairly painless do-it-yourself project ?? Thanks.

Assuming there are no major cracks in the gelcoat that will let water in, you may want to try using a pressure washer. You'd be amazed at what you can do with a 5 hp gas engine and some water. It beats using a lot of nasty stripper chemicals.
