yes, unfortunately the boat has been on the hard for over 2 years... long story short... the initial intent was to do a overhaul on the old engine but I determined that the money and time spent was not worth it. therefore we chose to wait save some money and buy a new engine, which we did at the Annapolis Boat Show last fall. my time has been limited until recently as we are trying to get our house on the market

Cheers,
Shawn

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I worked my fingers to the bone over the weekend but I am ready! I put on the last three barrier coats Friday morning, Friday afternoon, and Saturday morning. I worked on the boot stripe between barrier coats Friday and my wife and I waxed the hull between coats Saturday. The first coat of Ultima 60 bottom paint went on Saturday afternoon and the second coat Sunday morning. I took Sunday afternoon off for Easter (and the rain) but went back tonight to put the finishing touches on the boot stripe. Between the time the boat was soda blasted in mid-February and now it’s been an absolutely grueling several weekends of work (of the variety I don’t particularly enjoy) but the bottom looks awesome. The plan is to splash one night this week or Saturday morning, depending on weather. I can’t wait!

Once she’s back in, I have a few more winter projects to finish up. The cockpit and interior tables are at home to be refinished. I put a new thru-hull in for a larger bilge pump hose while hauled out but never got around to connecting the new hose. I also tore the dry rotted vinyl liners out of most of the interior cabinets and started replacing them with reflectix. Just need to finish those projects up in the next couple of weeks.

As a side note, in some discussions of the Ultima 60 it was mentioned that it might be thicker than the average bottom paint and therefore harder to apply. I didn’t find it any thicker or harder to apply than any other bottom paint I’ve used in the past. If anything, it was easier to apply than the paint I used last time around. Maybe the formula has been improved? So far the only negative of the Ultima is that the blue is a dark navy/teal while most of the other blue bottom paints I’ve seen/used are more similar to the Sunbrella “Pacific Blue” shade.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I have been ready to go in since our boat was hauled out.
The boat, on the other hand, needs a couple of days of prep. two more weeks til the dock opens.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

It is darker, at first I thought I may have ordered the wrong shade of blue but upon checking there is only one shade. What I don't understand is that the information I got with the boat states that it had Ultima 60 on before and it was that conventional light blue. Formula change? Anyway the color is growing on me...hopfully nothing grows on IT!

My brother passed away Thursday so of course I haven't done anything since. I'll probably not be able to put the shear stripe on since I noticed the marina called, I imagine I'm blocking someone who is ready to go in, I'll probably have to splash before I'm off during any warm windless weather that would enable me to apply the stripe.
