Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

Just have them lay the masking tape a half inch higher than the actual waterline and bottompaint up to it. You've got so many damn lines at the boot that losing one won't matter.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

Regarding the cove stripe, according to the original spec sheet on the C&C 24 I read last weekend, painting the cove was a dealer option, and the customer could spec the colour.



Larger boast may be different, but based on the variety i have sen over the years, something tells me that's not the case.
Personally, I wouldn't go gold, on a white hull, but would go blue to match the boot stripe.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

I agree on the Blue C&C top stripe. I am still unsure which is the bootstripe and which is the water line? The bottom most line is this the water line? click on the 4th photo iin this link and you will see why I am asking.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

I too think blue for the cove stripe and C&C "stars" is the way to go.

blj and SF are right about the bootstripes too.. raise the antifouling to cover the white orphan line below the wider lower boot stripe and call it done. It seems to be buffing out OK. These are notoriously difficult to get 'straight', if it's already good I'd leave it.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

K, I just talked to the boatyard on the phone. he said its just a difference in style. Some people liked the extra stripe. He said it makes the boat look longer and sleaker. He promased me he will do a jam-up job and it will look great when he is done. "Thursday or Friday. He talked me into leaving it the same way it is now. just re-applyed. It looks like rain here today.

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

The stripes along the waterline are generally referred to as the boottop stripes, I guess you have an upper and lower bottop stripe. The upper boottop stripe does look a little off under the stern, perhaps it is not original. Unless, the boat has a lot of extra gear, the white line along the waterline should stay reasonably clean, you may need to wipe it once or twice.

For the cove stripe, you can get gold gilded tape of the right width, and lay it right onto the cove stripe, then layin the star and trim to fit. Looked real nice on my C&C 30...

Certified...in several regards...

Re: S/V East Coast Lady Shows her Bottom

My wife painted our cover stripe...we used a blood red color and it looks sharp with the pacific blue canvas and all

before I was asking about replacing the cutlass bearing because the bearing itself is so very cheap to do if the shaft is already out and disconnected. Thats where all the problems lie. and the money is spent on the labor of removing the shaft. To me its like a preventative maintainence thing...for 100 dollars you can save 1000 dolarrs worth of work later i will do it.

Howzit Itgoshen,
Congrats on the GREAT looking vessel and thanks for posting about your experiences. Love to see a good boat return to service. Sounds like you'll be styling after your time in drydock. Keep up the good work and enjoy it all.
Aloha ka'kou,
