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.

Hopefully cape man will chime in.

Re: September Sally

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

That said, I do agree with you.

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...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

Tom, how think is the bottom on CL's boats? I think I'm maybe 1/16" thick (three coats) on the v12, and sailing into a bed at 2kn puts a BIG gouge in it. The cement ramps are just as bad (I have lots of glass under it so not too worried. I'm wondering if CL's idea of think is much thicker than my id...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

You can use EMC on the bottom for trailered boats. Just expect eventual wear-through where the bunks/rollers touch the hull. The EMC will not fare much better than the graphite on oysters. At least not in my experience. I think it is easier (cheaper) to repair the graphite than the EMC (and it takes...

Thanks GB. So the batten is just helping to adjust depth for a fair curve and the curve is to the plan. How thin are the planks?

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

So the uneducated dingle bat has a question about the "fairing" you are doing. I'll lay out my assumptions then you can tell me how I'm wrong... Assumptions: 1. The battens are all the exact same dimensions. 2. The battens are made of a synthetic material to ensure uniform bending. 3. The battens ar...

Re: Ongoing C19 questions...

Ok.. here's a thought... line the compartment with 3mil plastic. use packing tape to seal the seams on the inside (doesn't need to be pretty... it is in a sealed compartment). Pour the foam in in small pours separated by a few minutes. once the compartment is close to full let it sit a long time. Ca...
