At Preferred Abrasives we don’t compromise on quality, and our abrasives and sandpapers are reasonably priced so that you can meet your anticipated budget. As a boat builder you know how much time and good old fashioned sweat it takes to build and sand the wood, epoxy and fiberglass, and the last thing you want to be dealing with is having to change cheap sandpaper that rips and tears and causes you to stop your momentum. We have organized our boat building sandpapers below in a way that is easy to understand and helpful for the home boat builder and hobbyist as well as the professional marine industry.
