Re: Zanshin just got some Solbian solar panels

I often use one of the better small torches to do shrink tubing. Use the heat, not the flame.

Re: Catalina 22 fixer upper

With respect to repainting the decks, I LOVE Kiwigrip. It's a think acrylic paint. So easy to apply, great results.

Lots of info on this site.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I'v used some of that LED strip lighting, it works great. It's more for accent light than task light, as there's not enough intensity for tasks. Pay attention to polarity - the strips will not work...

Re: 1st big project, bronze thru-hull

I am just thinking that some chopped mat added to your thickened epoxy makes that part of the repair much stronger. Remember, epoxy hasn't much mechanical strength on its own. It's the glass that...

Re: 1st big project, bronze thru-hull

if you can get some chopped strand mat and make 3 or 4 little circles to fill the hole you're patching, that would be better. Wet them out thoroughly and stack them neatly in the hole. The...

Re: Keel: a.k.a Water Bucket

Iam,

Sounds like you have it somewhat sorted. Q: Do you have a deep sump at the forward end of the keel? If so, is that roughly where you drilled that hole? Do the bilges run to that sump? ...

Re: I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

If you're starting a campaign of replacing the standing rigging, you might consider doing it with superline instead of wire rope - except perhaps your forestay. I plan to make this change over the...

Re: Keel/hull repair need thoughts and input

I am not an expert. My comments are based on what I can see in the photo.

The above having been said, it looks to me like the same old thing, a little movement where the keel joins the hull. ...

Re: what type of fitting do I want at my outhaul car

I concur w Stumble. Take the car off to make it easy to splice an Amsteel/Dyneema eye right onto the car. Splicing 12 strand superline could not be easier. You could even splice in a thimble the...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Nice enough battery box, but a week-long cruise in the North channel on a 16 ft boat in a week?! I am not worthy.

Re: Finishing brand new teak cockpit table

The table looks almost like the day it was built. It's holding up well.

I've had great luck (touch wood) bonding teak with epoxy. I think that the secret is having very clean mating surfaces,...

Re: Finishing brand new teak cockpit table

I made a table last spring - you can see it in this post in the ever popular low buck thread:

Re: Leaking Compass Repair

I've refilled a couple of compasses with odourless mineral spirits. As mentioned above, put both the compass and the fluid in the freezer before refilling.

Re: Teak/Ipe supplier

Up north of Toronto is a wonderful place called Century Mill Lumber - obviously not convenient for the OP, that's not the point. They carry all sorts of exotic woods. When I was last there a couple...

Re: Sewmanship--How to become a God of Sunbrella

Thanks for this, very encouraging to a doofus like me. We already have a mid century Singer machine that weighs more than a Corolla.
