Bottom paint need answers.

Ok. Think I found a good boat for me. I'm looking at a very clean 2002 230vrs. All pictures of the boat look great. I am unfortunately a good distance from this boat. So of I go after it I am going to buy. After a lengthy discussion with the owner I'm convinced its a good buy. The only thing I am concerned about it what he called bottom Paint. He says is a coat of paint to cut down on alge. Does anyone know anything on this?

Means it was moored. Check for blistered gelcoat, or worse, signs that it's been re-gelcoated.

Not a salt water boat to my knowledge. What do you mean by moored?

Sellers sometimes apply bottom paint as a quick fix to hide problems...beware...it doesn't belong on a ski boat.

Yes it is. The one on ebay. I unfortunately can't get any info on the boat prior to two years ago. Don't even know if its been on salt water. Does anyone know if bottom paint can be removed permanently?

I removed the bottom paint from my boat a 2000 X-Star that was abused. Removed it with a waterbased remover and then wet sanded the hull and polished. Came out looking like new.
