Picked up this retired fishing camp rental boat late last summer. Already caught a few out of her but I think it deserves to be prettied up some.

2 times with the stripper then a grinder with a wire wheel and a palm sander. That's where I am now until I go get some more stripper.

Tried the cling wrap over the stripper trick tonight. Worked way better. [ external image ]
Also heard you can mix flour with it to make a paste which sticks on better may try that tomorrow.

Tried mixing some flour in with the stripper to make a paste. Saw this on YouTube, worked for that guy. Worked about the same as the cling wrap for me. Four coats of paint is four coats of paint!

Have to admire you guys that fix up these old hulls, I don't have the time yet to invest into a project like this (not to mention ability).

A brand spankin Lund would suit me but I have another money sucking hobby (snowmobile) along with 4 kids two of which are starting college in the fall. I'm so broke I can't afford to pay attention! So it's budget boat for me.

You guys think I could just clear coat this? Rat boat? Sigh, back to smearing, waiting and scraping.
