Wet sanding


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I'm wet sanding large areas of my boat, I've done heaps by hand and it's taking so long and feel like I am getting nowhere! 

I have a air orbital sander but it is 150mm and too tight in areas underneath the front of the hull between the strakes. Ideally something 80 - 100mm would suit better but I cannot find anything that size except for electrical Sanders, has anyone ever wet sanded with an electric sander before? I know it can be dangerous but I'm thinking maybe if it's just a couple of sprays with the water bottle maybe it might be OK? If not I need to find a another air sander size 80 to 100mm or maybe a different size backing pad for current one. 


Any advice/help much appreciated.
