Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

Bicycled into work. It's a mile. Needed a shower. Still not going to consider moving north. Or inland. Or anyplace where I can't wear shorts 13 months of the year.

Re: System 3 Yacht Primer thickening

There is a truck... liquor. Just drink enough and it will look GREAT. Don’t believe me, go to a bar and do some A/B testing of my hypothesis.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Watch out for eye bolts. They are made for in line lifting only. No side load allowed, none nada :!: The only exception is a shouldered eye bolt and they are still weak. If you are thinking of lifting the whole boat at some point I think I would just plan on using a nylon sling. No more than what t...

That's on the epoxy side. If you are doing multiple layers and the lower layer is ... ugly ... then that ugly will disr...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

What size are those eyes? Are they g8s? I have some opinions on how one might want to go about this based on what I've seen in the back wood of east-jesus-nowhere Pennsylvania when we've tried to extract Jeeps from the depths of gullies. You seems to have everything well engineered so I don't want t...
