I painted my old Whaler with Toplac paint and it came out pretty good. I wet sanded it with 600 grit paper and put on a second coat. (Quite satisfied) After a couple of months I have noticed a hand full of tiny little blisters that look like chicken pox. They are all small as a pin. I am a bit discouraged with this because I suspect osmosis. Is it possible to grind these out with a dremel and put something on them without having to do the comlete hull? A few are below the water line. The paint and decals look so good I hate to have to start over. Please help.

I expect that you could repair the pin holes in a similar fashion to repairing a stone chip in the paint on a car. Since you recently repainted the entire boat, you shouldn't have any problems with matching the color.

I wouldn't use a dremel as that can quickly take off more fiberglass than you want to in an extrememly short time.

Sorry to hear about your problem.
Tom
