Re: Upholstery

Sounds high but I haven't shopped for that stuff for a long time.
If there's a marina nearby, ask around. Sometimes cruisers will make extra bux doing this sort of thing.

Re: Systems 3 primer

Only used their varnish. Well, here's hoping you don't encounter any more problems with the topcoat. :D

Re: Systems 3 primer

Wish I could suggest something!
But anyway, you're going to sand that stuff anyway. It'll all work out OK.

Re: Great Loop Trawler/Cruiser - Concept

COVID idleness has reduced your muscle efficiency :)
This is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, unlike old age, it can theoretically be reversed. On the other, I'm the one that will have to reverse it! :? 8O

Re: Great Loop Trawler/Cruiser - Concept

I love this stuff. A little personal punishment is good for the soul. I'd enter the R2AK or that one they have in Florida if I was 1/2 my age. I took my V10 rowing last weekend and between portage to the shore and a not very long trip in unchallenging conditions, I felt 85. I'm going to chalk it up ...

Re: Systems 3 primer

I didn't have that problem...although I had others just as annoying. In my case I put it down to lapses in preparation, which was overall pretty good. How did you clean the surface before applying the primer? (Not that I know better, mind you.)

Re: AIS/VHF antennas

OQ, compared to guys on land, our choices for antennas at sea on small boats are limited.

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Good for you, Bogie.
The method suggested is less necessary if you 1) have crew and 2) are not on the lee side of the dock on a windy day.
