Re: Are NADA Values accurate ?

I'd say the only guide that has any chance of reliability is Soldboats.com which is available only to Brokers.

People even question its validity saying that selling brokers put in phony info.

Re: Keel repair - PICS

You don't need to. Some people think it protects things or even helps to hold it on if the glass goes up onto the hull.

I'm not one of them.

Glass can simply hide corrosion until it gets bad...

Re: Rotten Deck

But have you ever worked on a boat? Have you ever repaired a wet deck?

I have - pics attached. The small boat only has "after" pics I'm afraid but the 43' has before during & after pics.

Re: Winch Bases Needed

Depends what you mean by "bases".

As you can see from the replies there are differing interpretations of what it means.

Are you talking about a type of bracket or pad to bolt them to the deck...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

The Rawson has an SA/D of less than 13 - you don't want to do anything to reduce that any further.

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

If you have a separate oil pump from the engine driven one, using it to pressurize the galleys prior to startup will do vastly more than anything else to extend the life of your engine. Something...

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

Spin on filters work in any orientation - that's why I can't understand some of the manufacturers - my Perky had it at a 45 degree down angle - impossible to remove it without it draining all over...

Re: Union 36

Why not rebuild your current engine? Returning it to new will be lots of boat bucks and lots of work less. If you do it yourself, possibly with a babysitter if you are inexperienced, you will gain a...

Re: Tuning Standing Rigging after Mast Stepped

To my mind. the big benefit of a Loos is that you get the same tension on all the shrouds & stays.

Doing it by feel works, and has worked forever but it isn't good at getting them all the same -...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

I wouldn't pre drill. You can use anything that wont get melted by the resin. I've seen cardboard mailing tube used as a former. The advantage to using 1/2 a plastic tube is that screws can get a...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

Crazy idea - not even particularly cheap. Use epoxy coated ply and do a good job of tabbing it in.

For ribs, just use foam or PVC tube or even cardboard tube as formers and laminate glass over...

Re: New Bulkhead & Interior Framing

3/4" bulkheads would be excessive on a boat that size. 1/2" is plenty. Triple tabbing of 1708 biaxial would be super strong - double tabbing would be plenty good.
