Anyone else dealing with blisters? I started seeing significant numbers a few years ago and I’m tired of working on them every time I haul out. Anyone bit the bullet and had a peel and dry then relaminate job done?
I’m so deep into this boat I can hardly stand it!ThanksNick

Previous owner of Blue had that or something similar done I believe in Mexico, shortly after he had bought the boat in the Bay/Delta area. Never had a problem afterwards. I could put you in touch with him - he lives in Sidney, BC.
I’ve had my Cal Cruising 46 (hull no 5 1968 year built ) for 16 years now, home port here in marina del Rey CAIn my first haul out three years (13 years ago) after purchaseThere were a lot of blisters-like chicken poxThey did the work-grounded out each one and filled with microballons and fairedThat was 13 years agoSubsequent bottom painting and haul outs every 4 years or soVery minimal blistering - very satisfyingThe base solid fiberglass epoxy is solid and intact. No water intrusion nor any moistureThe blisters were superficial and did not affect the strength and integrity of the thick solid fiberglass hullWe used Trinidad 70% Cooper anti foulingPaint- two layers and three at the waters edgeFrom what I’m told blistering is also affected by water temp and different marinas-sea water- affect blister formationSo no I would not Nuke the problem unless your situation is critical and unbearableGood luckEdwinS/V LahliaCal Cruising 46Sent from my iPhone
