Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

CK17 usage plan

Looking at building something a bit more spacious and nearshore comfortable for the Mrs. I'm eyeballing the ck17 but wanted to pass the usage plan past JM and get his input.

Re: what is the weirdest boat you've seen?

You must have been near Charleston. That guy was a favorite “end of race” for us. I’m about 25 miles west of Beaufort, North Carolina — maybe he’s doing the great loop! :doh: If I recall, he was of a northern persuasion. He may be looking for less "red state" politics. Although coastal SC is pretty...

Re: Paint for bilge

My experience with cleaning bilge for "not my boat" says that you want smooth surface. Otherwise it's never really clean. Also use something made for bilge. Otherwise you wind up doing it again when some engine fluid or other "not nice" solvent winds up in it. I think 2 part epoxy would work. Tinted...

Re: Inside radius sanding

Get a flex extension for the Dremel and a slightly larger drum (pretty sure they make 3/4”). The. You only have to do the very end by hand.

Re: Paint Removal

Ah. that's right. You had the "man's manly paint" that was like removing white from rice. I guess my thought on this (as a lazy lazy person when it comes to finishing) is that a quick test of a simple paint striper would tell you what you want to know. I know that you can use that "citrus stuff" fro...

Re: Paint Removal

I’m pretty sure Cracker Larry used paint stripper and maybe cape man too. I’m not sure which ones. There will always be some sanding though.

Re: September Sally

Not to be argumentative, but what is really "safe" from hurricanes on the east coast? Sandy hit NY.

Re: September Sally

I asked a similar question directly of the harbor master here post Matthew. His response was that there wasn't enough room to haul them out, and the rates to pay someone to move them were 10x above normal prices. I mentioned the lead time and he followed up with "all the captains were booked 3wks ou...
