New to this site and I'm hooked . Now I have my boat all tore apart. Thanks!!!! :| I noticed alot of people using flex steel on the bottem of there boats . Do really need to do this Is there anything simaler I can get at the local hardware? The paint above the waterline is just faded do I need to sand and prime this or can I just paint over it? Tryin not to break the bank!!!
