Default Bottom Paint Primer

Under the ultra slick bottom paint on the baja, there is a primer. That is the reason the paint is still there... The paint comes off easily with a power washer, but can i easily get the primer off without wrecking the bottom? Wet sanding or is there some type of chemical that would do it?

Find a beach thats some sand , some little pebbles. Get a running start and run WFO right onto the beach, when you come to a stop you should have nothing left on the bottom of the boat.

HyperBaja,

I had a 22Sonic years ago and I tried everything. The gel from InterLux that you get at West Marine or Boaters World work some but doesnt get it all.

I had to get down there and just go to work with a belt sander for the thick stuff and then orbital with 100 grit and then 150, then 220, then 320, then 400wet, then 600wet and i even went up to 1500wet. Needless to say it took a while, but yeah it look like it was new.
