underneath

Great job on the repair!!! I have done major recoring efforts from both below and above. Personally, I have found it to be 6 one way and half a dozen the other as far as time and effort. The...

s2

I have always liked the S2 7.9. FYI, I believe the beam is over the legal limit for trailering w/o a permit in most states (generally 8'6"). It might be close enough you wouldn't get caught, but...

additives

Adding 3 additives (lubricity, biocide, stabilizer) might run into some money. From what little information I could find, most additives seem to have a relatively short shelf life (2-3 yrs?) yet...

Rich,
I understand hydrolysis. My question revolves around whether the failures boatpoker has observed are typically at the epoxy-gelcoat interface due to incomplete bonding as you suggested or is...

failures

I guess I have my doubts that most failures would be a bonding issue with the epoxy. Epoxy is pretty tenacious stuff and people (including me) have repaired localized areas, faired, plugged old thru...

preventative or fix?

I been involved in dozens of epoxy bottom jobs over the years and have seen most of them fail within 3-5yrs.

I am curious about that statement. First, I have never done an epoxy job myself so...

good point

I think that is a really good point. If you sand through portions of the largest patch, you interrupt your strongest layer (due to the longest fibers)

There was quite a bit of discussion about the small or large patch first in another forum sponsored by West System folks that I recently read. After reading it, it was apparent that folks have...

spar vs poly

Why use spar varnish, which contains UV inhibitors that generally make the varnish softer (i.e., less durable, I would think)? Wouldn't a polyurethane be better for an interior?

cutting the keel

Reducing the draft via cutting the keel is uncommon, but I have seen several boats that have had it done to them. One person in my marina did it a couple of years ago, basically as a DIY project. ...

I have no experience with it, but you should google "marine shaver." It appears to be a relatively low cost gelcoat planer. The video on the website shows fairly impressive results. Also the...

Despite the previous responses there were actually two models of starwind 22s. The first, as mentioned before, was the same hull as the Chrysler 22, but a different deck. It had an iron swing keel....

Thanks!

Many thanks to all who replied. Sounds like the Moeller pump is the ticket. MaineSails set up looks nice. I have always just sucked the oil out of the dipstick tube, but have had trouble with the...

I am tired of using my messy brass pump to extract oil from my engine and am considering purchasing a manual oil changer (e.g., topsider, Moeller). Does anyone have any recommendations?

did that

We trailered a Cape Dory 25D from Wisconsin to Key Largo. Many 25D's came with a very nice Triad trailer. The total wgt of boat and trailer was about 7,000 lbs and the beam is 8'0" so it was not...

recoring from the inside

I think we've had this conversation before. I done an extensive recore job from the bottom (and one from the top). IMO, recoring a moderate to small area (or a big area one section at time) from...
