Re: Seacoat Sea-speed bottom paint

The downside of non-copper bearing anti-fouling paints is that they don't work anywhere near as well (but we have no choice).

I read where the British (in the 17th century) sheathed the entire bottom of their wooden sailing ships with copper! Imagine what that would cost today.

Re: Seacoat Sea-speed bottom paint

Don't ignore Joel's advise. My 32 footer was coated with green slime (not barnacles) and felt like I was dragging the anchor. Scraped her clean myself in shallow water--with a 1 1/2 inch wide putty knife!--and the difference was amazing.

Re: Steering cable frozen

On dirt bikes, we used compressed air to force lubricant through the cable. Elevate that end, clamp a rubber hose to the cable, pour thin oil in the hose, then clamp an air fitting to it and add as much pressure as it will take. Let it sit a few hours, adding pressure as needed.

Re: knowledge and advice sought on Seacrest houseboat performance/capability

If you could get a hold of Sorry Dog (who owned one) he could tell you all you want to know--and more!

Anyone know if he's still around, or how to contact him?

Re: Sunken 32`

All of you Marinetters out there ought to try the Gudian Brothers Test I described above. All you need is a piece of scrap aluminum, some cheapo clear epoxy, and some coarse sandpaper. The results are stunning the first time you see it, and extremely educational!

Re: Questions about desire to re power a 32 Sedan with outboards

Remember, that bracket needs solid bracing inside the hull for the transom isn't designed for such loads.

Interesting project!

Re: Sunken 32`

I hate to say this, but aluminum corrodes INSTANTLY when sanded (ie: you can't paint it fast enough!) Don't believe it? Then try this little test. It's called the Guedian Brothers Technique. To wit: Mix up some clear epoxy, then "wet sand" some bare aluminum with it using coarse sandpaper....

Re: Questions about desire to re power a 32 Sedan with outboards

A single OB? at first blush I thought "that'll never work," but my 32 footer DID plane off easily on one engine (when it had the props that came with it that were may under pitched). Loosing all that weight (at least 1,800 to 2,000 pounds) while gaining only 500 or so, should allow full pl...
