Re: Schock Santana 30?

Is this the boat on ebay? Its just a Santana 30. Not the cool 30-30. Looks like lots of boat for the money though.

Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

Titanium is the best choice. It will never corrode in salt water. The only substance that can penetrate its protective oxide coating is a strong acid, like hydroflouric.

Silicon Bronze is more...

Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

Actually, that 5 times safety factor works for the 1/2 hanger bolts. 1400 x 5 = 7000 per bolt, which is about what i calculated was required for a 1x safety factor. So, having a 13700 lb holding...

Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

Just calculated the max torque for these hanger bolts in lead. 35 ft lbs. That equates to a 5700 clamp force. So, I think I will add some window bolts too. Maybe a couple 3/4 bolts.

Re: Replacing lead Keel bolts

Well, drilling the hole the side of the keel is an excellent idea. I dont see how that would be any less strong then the boat yard method. I believe they sink new J or T bolds, then melt lead in to...

Replacing lead Keel bolts

The Keel bolts looked good, but when I went to check the torque, all but two twisted off with little effort. Kinda scary. Anyway, its a lead keel, probably has the studs casted in. I would like to...

Re: Paint Remover for anti-fouling paint

I got the aircraft stripper. $30 at West Marine. Applied it, then tried to use a pressure washer to remove it. That did not work. The paint hardens as soon as it gets wet. So I broke down and...
