Re: Rotted Teak Toe Rail

Thanks guys lots of good advice. I was not aware of the teak rotting until I removed the toe rail. Moisture got in underneath it and is is really soft. Otherwise I thought I would be putting the same...

Rotted Teak Toe Rail

I am in the process of stripping all hardware off the deck of my 25 Irwin. It leaks at the deck and hull joint so I pulled off some of the teak toe rail. Unfortunately there will be no re using the...

Re: painting 25 Irwin

I am thinking about PPG Delfleet paint for the boat versus Awlgrip or Awlcraft.

Anyone have good results with Delfleet?

Re: painting 25 Irwin

I may have changed my paint from Awl Grip to PPG Delfleet. Anyone use this before?

Re: painting 25 Irwin

I think I should be set.

My main thing is cost. Anyone out there have any idea about what I am looking to spend?

Re: painting 25 Irwin

Yes, I am looking at doing the hull between the waterline and rails along with the deck. Everything on the deck needs to be reseated so I figured I can kill two birds with one stone.

Re: Best sander for bottom sanding?

That's an interesting concept, but like other have said VC 17 doesn't really need any sanding.

I have it on my boat as well. All you need to do is rudder, keel, leading edge, and water line...

Re: old sails?

Your sails are probably made from Dracon if they are original. I just sold a 1972 Cal T/2 that had original sails. Dracon sails can last a while if you store them correctly. If the sails are to the...

Re: Deck Soap, low cost

How does Simple Green work on bird droppings?

Another thing that works well are those pressure washer wands you hook up to a hose. Can't compare it to an actual power washer, but it worked well...

Re: Wd40

The best stuff I found for breaking things loose is kroil penetrating oil. I bought off amazon. It even lubricates too.

Re: Getting ready to add shore power

After a day of sailing it typically took no more than a few hours to charge. With that being said the only instrument I am using is my depth sounder. Now with a stereo installed I may need to up my...

Re: Getting ready to add shore power

Yea I agree, it all needs to be redone. The program I used to draw the lines did not have the proper colors. I used bright colors so it would stand out.

Re: Getting ready to add shore power

This is what I have. Unlike a float charger it is capable of bulk charging too. Since it charges at a slower rate, the battery stays cool, ultimately prolonging my batteries life:

Re: Getting ready to add shore power

I have one battery and charge it with the same charger (It does charge the battery as well as maintain it). The motor also charges the battery if needed. It is a smaller boat at 25 ft. I don't think...

Re: Getting ready to add shore power

My concern more or less was do I need individual breakers? Could I get away with combining a fridge and a charger on one circuit? Is there something I was missing? Not concerned about the charger.

The Battery Tender Jr. doesn't draw more then 1 amp. and a refrigerator shouldn't draw more than 5 amps.

Re: boarding ladder ideas 25 ft boat (Irwin 25)

You would have to explain that one. is the motor up /down, do you use the power head, place your foot on the lower unit?



I went to the boat yesterday and ruled that out... Unfortunately, the...
