Hull Preparation

Hull Preparation

Can anyone help with information on hull preparation such as acid etching and sealing prior to the use of epoxy fillers and finishes. We are curently wet curing a 48ft ferrocement hull for a sail training vessel.UK paint firms seem to know little about the problems of blistering on new hulls. Many thanks for any info.
