Yep, I've taken 5 gallons of paint off this thing so far!

Keep at it. All the hard work now will be worth it in the end when you are proud of the final result.
Thanks,

While waiting on stripper I piddled around with a scouring pad and some vinegar. I think the bottom will come up nice.

Hit the rail with a buffing wheel just for giggles. That's a reflection of my phone! I think I may polish the rail.

Scrubbed the hull down with vinegar and scotch brite. You can see the difference in this pic.

Whole boat has been stripped and wire wheeled. Will go over it with a palm sander and then a prep wash before paint. Got a few rivets to replace and some minor straightening here and there first.

The gunwale rail had pulled away in a few spots so some clamping, tapping and riveting was called for.

Gave it a once over with the palm sander and called it good enough. The outside is ready for paint. My plan is to paint the inside first so I'll have to enlist the help of a couple of my sons to flip this thing.

Looks great! LOTS of work, for sure, but you'll be pleased with the final product.

I picked up this nyalox brush on the weekend. It's a lot more gentle than the stainless wire cup brush I'm using on the grinder. It leaves a nice brushed look. This brush is tougher than it looks, a brass wheel would have worn out by now.

I admire your dedication!
That boat looks like a solid built boat.
It's gonna look good when your done.
Wouldn't you like to hear the stories that boat could tell?
Good luck with it.

For sure. As a former resort rental, there has got
To be a pile of pictures out there with people holding fish. I hope it's a good fish catching boat!
Thanks, I have a minds eye picture of what I hope it's going to look like so I hope I can come close.

Been busy at work, long hours, so don't feel like working when I get home. Spent a bit of time on the Naden tonight, got the side rails cleaned up. Going to use the nyalox brush on the top rail. Then another once over on the inside before a vinegar wash. Picked up some enamel hardener last weekend. I am going with tremclad/rustoleum oil based enamel.
