1947 6 metre Wood Sailboat
by Fred Schneider
(Shelby twp MI)
I am restoring a 6 meter wood sailboat and have removed the fiberglass skin.
I have sanded down to the mahogany wood.
After caulking I will be painting below the waterline and varnishing above.
There are so many different types of paint.
For the bottom do I start with a wood sealer then apply primer and then apply the antifouling bottom paint?
I assume I would be applying several coats of each and sanding in between.
I appreciate any suggestions.
