Re: Rusty iron keel

When I served aboard. Few US military vessels have rust.
There is more than one good way to do almost anything. Several members have reported good alternatives to the expense and trouble of sandblasting. Get over it!

I was aboard quite a few military ships during my service years and I don't recall ever seeing rust. Lots of fresh paint, but no rust. US Navy and Coast Guard ships were some of the cleanest vessels I have ever seen.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Exactly my point. If you rely on chipping, scraping, grinding etc. you will always be painting. Not what you want with an iron keel.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
