Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Looks like you are ready for a grind down to bare metal, eoxy the keel then paint. I woudl get prices in Canada, and down where you are. potentially getting it done local ie canada.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Planning on doing it myself, but only after the first 'sailing season' (which ends June-July). Gotta do the Two Restaurants Race, the Round Barbados and the Mount Gay Regatta...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Mark,

Not sure where there is one or is at for that matter. I do know that someone on here had a thread on redoing his Hunter, "Sequiter" or close to handle. If you can dig that one up if you do not have the info on how to redo and iron keel, good place to look up. I am also recalling one on the Jeanneau-owners forum, may even be one in the hints and tips area too.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Yeah thanks for the reminder... I had not had time to look at sailnet these last few years but the resources and wisdom online is great and I began looking again. I've got a few leads. I'm not worried about the grinding or the fairing afterwards as I've done part of the keel a few years ago and it still looks flawless. But I got to get my head around the issue of barrier coat, which I'm learning about...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Dear Waymar
I was just through this in the spring. I only removed the loose parts of the barrier coat on the keel, visible through cracks or rust. When shining metal appears on the keel, you are done. Rinse with acetone. Then the first two layers of barrier coat. I used VC-TAR2, because I use VC 17 as fairing. Do this in sections, so that new rust does not get formed while you are working your way round. Then a good deal of West expoxy filling. Then 8 more coatings of barrier on the keel, five layers on the hull.
It sounds easy, but it is a lot of work. The look is highly rewarding, though.
Best regards
Jens
