Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

I'd refrain from putting down 2 coats of Cetol in one day, the solvents may not escape the first coat quickly enough causing problems with the second coat. In fact 24 hours might not be enough in...

Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

Sorry BL but I disagree on the statement that Cetol was developed to "cut corners". It was develoed to be more durable than varnish. If you improve durability you reduce the need for maintenance,...

Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

I have seen weathered teak on another boat like mine and the coaming looked terrible with splits and rough/lifting surface. No thanks. I'd rather do a little maintenance every couple of years, than...

Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

Your math is also incorrect. When you put down a base coat of natural teak you apply a minimum of 3 coats IIRC. If you want to clear coat for more durability you put two coats over that so its 5...

Re: Interlux Schooner vs. Sikkens Cetol

That's the problem with varnish. Two coats a year. That means every spring and fall I'd need to sand, mask and apply it. Way too much time to spend on teak maintenance. Cetol only needs...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

Yes, blue paint; it becomes lighter blue over time. When first painted on it's nearly as dark as the boot stripe.

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

So knowing that it's 5.5 years old; knowing that the bottom paint is getting difficult to scrub per what the diver is saying, and the boat already in the slings with an agreement that the yard that...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

As I said before; the prop and shaft was painted with Ultra also. There were barnacles where it had washed away. The waterline on the port side is clean because the boat does not sit perfectly...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

That picture was taken before pressure washing. It was about 3 months after the bottom was cleaned. There is a bit of hard growth on the lower edge of the keel but that's why the diver said it was...

Checked my records; it was 5.5 years between haulouts. Boat was berthed at Marina Bay in Richmond for the duration.

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

OK; you were asking for an explanation on how my bottom paint lasted 6 years. I offered a possible reason. For WHATEVER reason it lasted 6 years. I don't know why, it just did. As I said before...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I think you misunderstand my comment about being wiped lightly. If I put my hand in the water and wipe the slime off it comes off easily and then blue paint begins to release. The diver said the...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I don't have my boat scrubbed every month or two. The paint is 65% copper and it's a hard anti-fouling. How is this inferior to Trinidad SR? The bottom paint does release when wiped lightly so it...

Re: vibration reducing shaft couplers

I had a similar problem; the coupling would not slide back far enough so I shortened the section of reinforced hose attaching the shaft seal to the shaft log (but not so short that the log hits the...

Re: SF Bay - how long do you get out of Pettit Trinidad SR?

I got 6 years out of 2.5 coats of Interlux Ultra; when the boat was hauled the paint still looked good it pressure washed off the slime and there was no hard growth. Diver said it was becoming...

Looks similar to the Oyster 82 that was docked on the end of my row; but the coach roof line is a bit different; could be a custom pilothouse design of the Oyster 82...

Re: Best choice of antifoling for new barrier coat

Micron is good if you sail regularly but it's longevity is limited to 1-2 seasons for a standard 2 coat application. Being semi-ablative it is more prone to washing off than a hard anti-fouling...

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

I think it would make a great MOOvie! It would be an instant classic like Capt. Ron. How many cows are you offering him for the rights?!?!

Re: Yacht Specialties Steering Pedestal

Re: Help pinpointing a leak

I'd say yes that they are structural; there is lots of load on the keel stub due to the static weight of the keel; and when the boat heels The hull would want to deform in the bilge without the...

Re: Help pinpointing a leak

Re: Crisis! Head is clogged!

I'm sure you're right; I don't live aboard so on the rare occasion we use the head on the boat I just keep the marine TP onboard since I know it's safe to use in the head. If I were living aboard I...
