We got Alan Boyd from X-Foul-E-8 to strip the hull paint off from the beltings down in July. He did a great job. Three days to get rid of countless seasons of paint right back to bare boards. He probably could of done it in two but had so many folk stop and ask about the process he uses. Sure beats burning it off. Once she'd dried out we were able to prime straight over the top.
Came up looking great. Alan's site is www.x-foul-e-8.com he's based in Auckland. Good guy to deal with. Check the photos here:
