Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

I heard back from the painter. His quote was $7,400. So, I will be attempting to spruce up the deck myself. It's not my "forever" boat so the 7G paint job on a $1300 boat doesn't make any sense. I...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Rolling and tipping- this is laying on a heavy coat with a roller and lightly brushing it out, at least on the smooth areas? Whats the technique on the non skid areas...just roller, no brush?

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Thanks! I am supposed to get back a quote for deck painting today. Almost all of the deck is molded in non-skid.
As far as DIY-wouldn't I have to remove all of the rigging and hardware or would it...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Followup: Having purchased my first boat last April, a 1970 Ericson 23, the first thing I did was have her hauled out and the bottom stripped and painted. The cost was nearly twice the purchase...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

I love the lines on the older cabin cruisers/sport fishers. So for giggles I contact a Craig's List poster about his 1975 Skipjack. So happens it's at the marina I was at today. First thing I notice...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Ha! No. Around here when you mention the boatyard it's assumed you mean The Boatyard in Marina Del Rey. That's actually the name of the business.

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

I did see this one today while walking the docks in Alamitos! Took a few pictures of it. Looks like it once had a wheel helm that has been removed and a big fiberglass patch on the bow starting from...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Now I've been presented for my consideration a 1973 Ranger 29 with Atomic 4 that runs (gas) for $5000. Quick Google search tells me the keels were molded into the hull and the ballast poured in. So...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

You are correct, sir! It is my understanding that in order to produce the higher horsepower these engines have to run relatively high RPM's. Is it true that the 30 horse and the 12 or so horse is the...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

It's a city owned and operated marina. Nothing they do makes sense.

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

That's good to know. I figured the smell was likely due to poor housekeeping. How much horsepower should I look for in a 27-30 foot boat?

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Can't think of of anything stinkier than a diesel. I looked at a diesel powered CAT30 and could not tolerate the smell below decks. I've looked at CAT30's with dead Atomics in the engine bay and a...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Trouble is having to sort through all the ads that make false, or at least, uninformed claims. I am shocked that so many owners know so little about their boats. I believe that in So. Cal. we have a...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

If you were there in the afternoon, you'd have seen a 22 foot Fiberform on the 35 ton sling. That's when we found the spun props and I withdrew my offer to purchase. The owner of that boat spent all...

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

The marinas want a recent survey- within the last 24 months- for older boats. The insurance company will let me do a self survey.

Re: Mr. B Buys A Boat- Adventures in Boat Shopping

Racing is so far off my radar as to not even be a concern. I'll leave that to the skilled sailers here.
