Ever since I got my Speedster a month ago, I started getting a weird rash on the inside of each forearm occasionally. I finally tracked it to when I rest my arms on the hull while leaniing into the engine compartment. Even just a minute or two of exposure is enough to get the rash.
I've never had any reaction to anything like this before. The rash is really sensitive and painful but goes away in about 4 hours.
I've had stray fiberglass strands poke into my hand while reaching around inside the hull (attaching the oil filler hose for example), and they're obnoxious, but I don't see how I could be picking something up from the gel coat. There's layers and layers of wax on it, so maybe I'm allergic to the wax.
Help! My boat's attacking me!
