    Hey guys whats the best thing to do when the powder coat is chipping and bubbling up a bit, exposing the aluminum on the boat?

    I’m willing to bet it’s either at a faster or was chipped. Once this happens it just spreads. I’m with GnB it’s done and should be cleaned up and recoated

    Hail Mary would be sand it back using progressive grits then a metal etch primer and paint. Worth a try and might work. The primer / paint will grab the powder.

    Thanks guys, it seems overkill to redo the entire thing lol it’s only happening in a very small spot.

    It doesn't take long to go from a small spot to a big one once water gets under the surface and pushes the finish off the surface.
