          One 4.5" disc will probably do that whole project and then some.
          found them online.
          I saw I can get 16, 24 or 36 grit

          ive been using 36(it gets it just takes a bit) flappy

          wondering maybe get the 24 and do a quicker knockdown then use the 36 after to finish it off

            Don't do the 24. The 36 is more than sufficient. It doesn't really change grit as it's used.

              24grt is like throwing rocks.
              Either one will give you more work than you care for if you don't pay real close attention whilst slinking it around.

                    What a great experience! Can’t count the number of stitches I have had on the bottom of my feet and hands from oysters. Growing up it seems I was always in a splint, cast, or had stitches.

                      Kind of funny, I saw the whaler 15 restore the other day and then Levi came to my Thursday and said he’s having his friends over to help him get back to work on the Whaler.
                      It’s been a year. Baseball football school took up his time.
                      They want to start camping on islands so they are chomping at the bit

                      here’s the live action:
