Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Karl, perhaps a rolling hitch or better is a Prusik knot. Use fairly light line, say 5 mil which will easily be strong enough. You shouldn't have to drill a hole.

Re: Painting the bottom of a production boat

You can paint over gelcoat, no need to strip down to glass. Clean and fair, lightly sand for tooth, and you're good. If you want a long lasting paint you should probably go with a 2-part like the coatings sold here.

Re: What is in a name?

I have some contrarian opinions on this matter. First, the name you've chosen is appropriate in every way for a boat. You've looked into the meaning, it is a woman's name, and it can be reasonably easily spelled. You can't go wrong with a woman's name; however, I would use the name of a woman whose ...

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration

Don't see anything in need of repair! 8) :? 8O :lol: :doh: Seriously, this doesn't look bad at all and it's on the bottom. You going to be beaching this boat? If so, you might consider just cleaning and sanding for tooth, fill with something like Quick Fair, and then give it a couple of coats of gra...

Re: What do boat manufacturers use to seal hose connections?

I 100% agree with OQ and Tom on this. Never used a sealant on a hose and never had an issue. This was the guy's first day on the job and he was doing his own thinking.

Hey, I've got no idea but since no one has answered, why not just plumber's putty?

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

A beautiful boat for sure. I'm very partial to boats that look like proper yachts and aren't all plastic. That said, despite the lovely look of a ketch, I'm not fond of them. The mizzen mast is directly in front of the helm which makes you cross-eyed. You essentially lose the power of the mizzen whe...
