Re: Varnish Blushing

My next coat will be number 6 (the blushing happened on #4.) I have found that 6 coats is a pretty good amount. I may try an extra one or two though. Can't hurt, might as well finish the can. I also...

Re: Varnish Blushing

Thankfully the sun goes down here around 9:35 so I have plenty of time before dark. I went down last night, did a light sanding and had it varnished by 7:00. Just checked on it at lunch and it looks...

Re: Bilge system in a small boat

On my Catalina 22 all I used was a hand pump and it worked fine. Keep it simple... If you really want to go the permanent route I would add a thru hull on the stern, centered, and above the water...

Re: The ULTIMATE Cooler...

They only wanted $50K and are currently at $1.1 million. I think it is safe to say this will see production.

Varnish Blushing

I am doing some varnishing on my boat. I checked the forecast and the overnight temp was supposed to be above the dew point so I thought I was in the clear. When I got back to the boat this morning I...

Re: Almost sank my boat... Prop Shaft - backup retainer?

Thanks for the tip on the set screws. I will be installing the collar this weekend so I will get new set screws too. The shaft does not have a significant amount of play. It took a couple light taps...

Re: Almost sank my boat... Prop Shaft - backup retainer?

Thanks for the replies. I think I will add the hose clamp now and order a clamp on collar. That will give me a lot more piece of mine and confidence next time I put it in reverse.

Almost sank my boat... Prop Shaft - backup retainer?

So, I almost sank my boat yesterday. I was doing some work on my engine and wanted to test it out. While still tied to the dock, I put it in forward and then reverse. As I was throttling up in...

Re: cost to seal through hulls and install a new backing plate

It could be bronze, not sure. It was a "yellow" metal and for the price I'm pretty sure it wasn't gold. I'm in a fresh water environment and they will be staying dry so it shouldn't be an issue...

Re: cost to seal through hulls and install a new backing plate

Exactly. That's why I did just that. Same piece of mind but reversible in just minutes.

Re: Cradle question

If they quote anywhere near 8 hours get a second opinion. I built my cradle from scratch in about 8 hours and I feel mine is way overbuilt compared to other ones in my marina. I would expect it to...

Re: Cradle question

Yes, there are a lot of guys who have mobile units mounted on their trucks. It would be very basic fabricating. Without seeing it I would think it could be done in an hour or two.

Re: cost to seal through hulls and install a new backing plate

The valves on my through hulls were threaded so I bought the corresponding brass plugs and now they are securely plugged but it can be reversed if need be down the road.

Cost: $10
Piece of mind...

Re: Cradle question

A picture would help a lot. I built my own cradle as well as a trailer for my 32 ft boat. Any welding shop should be able to modify your cradle. The adjustable pads are available individually for...

Re: Stuffing Box Packing size question

I'd love to measure it with the shaft in place but it is almost inaccessible. I can barely see it and have a difficult time even reaching it. Very poor design as far as engine access is concerned. I...

Re: Stuffing Box Packing size question

Here is a picture of the packing. In there now is 1/4". What do you think, 5/16" should cover it?

Re: Light, medium, or heavy oxidation?

Kind of hard to tell in the pictures but I would say it looks like light to medium to me. I have seen way worse. At least you still have some shine. I do like the 3M Restorer.

Re: Anyone tow or hire a truck?

I have a 32' Ericson with a weight of 9,000#. It was not seaworthy at the time so I had to build a trailer. I found a triple axle heavy equipment trailer and built an adjustable cradle. I actually...

Re: sailing / passing another sailboat etiquette

I like the kid steering on auto pilot idea.

On a related note, what make/model water cannons do you carry. I have the Aqua Zooka which has a range of about 50ft. Always looking to improve the...
