NADA no longer providing prices older than 1975

Anyone notice that you can't search on NADA earlier than 1975? Bummer. I wonder when/why they did that?

GOB had an article about moorings being made with several semi-truck brake drums.

Aren't most of those boats anchored? For a Columbia 22, I would imagine an anchor sized for a 40+ foot boat might...

J,
I think you want your gelcoat to be a little thicker than that. 15-25 mils. But, on a repair of that size, if you prep properly and finish level, you can hardly avoid getting the correct...

j,
You think bath tub appliques would work? They are pretty water proof and designed to be anti skid and gentle on the skin.

Ron,
People yell about using 5200 as a sealant; not as a bonding agent. It's a damn good bonding agent.

5200 and marine epoxy take a long time to dry. I'd look at something quick like one of...

jarcher,

jorgen,
You might stop by a big-box store and look in the moldings section. I saw some 1 x 5 1/2" PVC stuff that might work for you. It was definitely not starboard priced.
