Oh, I have no more budget left ... it is good that wind is free.

Practical Sailor never gives it very high marks, but this is my fourth season using West Marine CPP ablative. I've really had good results here on the upper Chesapeake. I've also been using Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier (the one that Chef mentioned). It's only a fraction of the cost of SpeedProp ... and I think the results are fairly good. I haul out every winter ... so my performance time horizon is just one season at a time, but I think the CPP could go two seasons with respectable results. West Marine CPP is actually a rebranded Petit from what I understand.
I wonder how CPP would adhere to a worn-out coat of CSC Micron Extra, if I decided to change brands. Would I have to completely sand the hull down?

I guess I had a little more engine work remaining than I thought, but I made major progress yesterday. Now I really am at the point where I just need to swap the impeller and do an oil change.

I applied it for the second time last fall - seems to adhere to sanded prior hard bottom coat, no problems. It is good at discouraging barnacles, not so good on ordinary slime.

According to this chart from West Marine, you would just have to lightly sand and apply. Wear a mask!

Harbor Freight has an inexpensive palm sander that interfaces nicely with my Shop Vac. Last time I sanded I was able to take off the mask because it was capturing everything. Not sure if this sander is big enough for your boat, but it was fine for my 25 footer.

Since my Shop Vac terminated with an awkward hard wand, I added 4' of flexible pool hose as an interface. It had rubber tips which mated perfecly at both ends:

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I sanded boat bottoms only a few times due to a heavy barnacle build up (I couldn't afford bottom paint way back then). As far as recent boats with fairly clean bottoms I've gotten by with power washing and using Scotch Brite while the hull is wet. As a matter of fact I'm typing this with bluish tinted hands right now!

Today the new name and hailing port came in the mail! I felt like Steve Martin getting his phone book!

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

I've found this stuff to be great for extending vac hose; cheap, super light, and a 20' additional extension eliminates having to move the vac if you place it centrally.

Re: Ready To Go Back In?

One other thing that I use is a smart power strip where a master outlet senses whether the device is on, and turns on the other slave outlets along with it. I plug the sander into the master outlet, and the ShopVac into the slave, so they both turn on/off with the sander.

Mine's supposed to go in Friday. I leave for CA for 12 days Monday, so if its not dreadful, we hope to be sailing this weekend. I sure hope so, or I'll be at home wheelbarrowing & spreading 8 yards of mulch.
