If you point it out to them nicely, they'll likely just fix it on the spot at no cost to you..Thanks. I like to be reasonable but don't like to get cheated either...
Dealer is 200 miles away so, not possibly to have them fix it but thanks all for your feedback, I feel vindicated....If you point it out to them nicely, they'll likely just fix it on the spot at no cost to you..
It's really not a big deal - but, yes, it needs to be done and it's reasonable to ask them to do it.
?!??? There aren't any good yards around here then!!Good yards put a large piece of paper between the hull and straps to avoid any damage to fresh anti foul and your freshly waxed hull.
WHADAYATHINKYADOING?!??There is the "Strapless haul out too:
Well.. some of us (those with old wooden boats) have no choice.Any anti fouling paint needs time for the solvents to flash off before going into the water. This time period will vary from product to product but immediate splashing after painting is a guarantee of paint failure.
Putting wet paint (which means there are unflashed solvents present) into the water is a guarantee that the paint will not perform as it was designed to. That is not simply my opinion but rather a matter of fact and chemistry. Just because you've "been doing it that way for years" doesn't mean you've been doing it right. Unless maybe you know more about their products than the manufacturers do.I know it'll be fine because I've been doing it that way for years now and have yet to suffer 'paint failure' because of it. Some 'guarantee'...
I didn't say this isn't what happens in the real world. I said it is a mistake to believe that the wet anti fouling paint will work properly once it has been put into the water.What yard in your planet is actually going to let you or any one else hang in the slings long enough for proper drying time? Reality is your painting the bottom of the keel where the bottom has been resting, and the jack stand pad area you could not paint, while the travel lift is making it's way to the drop in slot. Great internet idea you have, but reality is just a bit different.
