Re: Best place in California to sail and live on your boat?

Yeah, why would you want to sail in Northern California's best weather and have your boat berthed conveniently close to boatyards, chandleries, marine services, great dining and an exploding craft...

Re: Moving from fresh to salt water moorage - questions

Such a test is completely meaningless unless you include a commonly used (in your area) anti fouling paint as well as an uncoated control panel, all three tested simultaneously in the same location....

Re: Moving from fresh to salt water moorage - questions

I did read the whole article. And the fact that one boater (20 years ago) claimed that diaper cream didn't wash off a dinghy while it was being towed (for an undetermined amount of time) means very...

Re: Moving from fresh to salt water moorage - questions

Sure. And then in two months when all the diaper cream has been washed off the bottom of your boat, you can haul out an do it all over again. You know, after you've scraped off all the barnacles...

Re: Bad Zinc

Bare wires bleeding 12vdc into a wet bilge can destroy big metal parts in a hurry.

This ocurred in a matter of weeks. Despite resolving the problem (broken insulation on a bilge pump wire) the...

Re: How is boat beer made?

Not sure why you are hung up on "used". Stainless or aluminum will do, used or new, as long as it's clean. Don't overthink it.

Re: How is boat beer made?

You can do the boil in a stainless or aluminum pot. Doesn't have to be new. Doesn't even have to be sanitized. Just clean. However anything that touches the wort after the boil is complete must be...

Re: How is boat beer made?

Next to sanitation, fermentation temperature control is the most important technique a homebrewer must master. Without it, you are unlikely to produce anything worth drinking. Assuming you will be...

Re: Zyrex Bottom Coating

FYI- this product is not anti fouling paint. It will not repel fouling growth. It's marketed as a foul-release type of coating but is unproven, IMHO. My advice- give it a wide berth. You don't want...

Re: bottom paint prep

Maybe, although I don't believe it has ever been in the paint manufacturer's best interest to intentionaly mislead their customers about paint compatibilty.

Re: bottom paint prep

Ablative paints do not ablate of their own accord. They require moving water to cause that to happen. Once you have covered an ablative with a hard paint, water is no longer going to flow past the...

Re: bottom paint prep

Sorry, but that is simply not the case. Most copper-based anti fouling paints are compatible with one another, regardless of whether they are hard or ablative types. It's all in the preparation....

Re: Max Prop

Know also that you don't have to haul out to repitch your Max Prop. Any model Max Prop can be repitched undwerwater and PYI will happily recommend a diver in your area who is qualified to do it.
