how did you keep it from turning brown?

All the ones I have ever bought turned brown and mushy within a week or two.

Re: Found water under the cockpit deck

Problem is solved. Rain water got in from the center line aft and fore compartments (hatches were open) and cockpit drain, they drain into aft center compartment/bilge. When they filled with water from a failed cover and tarp. Water got under the cockpit though the openings around the oversized hole...

Re: Found water under the cockpit deck

Could you tilt the boat on one side and up slightly and successively fill one compartment and see if it trickles into the next? I know it might be meaningless at this stage... but it will help you find out if water can get over one frame between the frame and sole and into the next. I did this with...

Re: A facelift of SandPiper, FS14

Foam is coming out fairly easily. Using a small shovel and pry bar to pop it out. Damn lot of foam.... Still don't know exactly were the water got in under the cockpit deck, it did move around to all the compartments. I did find I did not use 5200 around the chase tubes as they went thru the frames....

I'm starting to wonder if the formula has been changed. :?


This pour was back in 2017/18. But also had the same thing happen last year on a small area on the LM18.

Re: Aft storage compartments humming

Well finding water under the cockpit deck, changes thing.... I now know what happened, earlier this year I spent two weeks in the hospital, during that time a storm blew apart the tent/tarp, leaving the boat cover to cave in filling the boat with rain water. The drain got clogged with leaves! My nei...
