    Hi All,

    new member here, sorry if this is not the right place to post this question. I have a 1992 searay 180; I’m currently getting some work done to the engine and personally doing some work to the interior. I’m looking to put on some anti fouling paint for the first time while this other work is currently being done so I can put it in my local marina for the summer. But right now I am not able to put it in the water to determine the water line. Does anyone have any pictures of a 180 in the water or have any recommendations how to figure out where to tape off without putting the boat in the water.
    Thanks in advance

    I would go from the boot stripe down. But having anti foul now and on a trailer, I sure wish I didn't have that maintenance item. You have a lot of work ahead of you. Sand, base coat then top coat. Then the strip and repaint every other year or so. But if your leaving it in all summer........

    Can't you just pressure wash it at the end of the season instead of painting it just curious

    That's what we do with our smaller boat. Just wash it real good with the pressure washer and a brush. It's just the gel coat.
