That boat is probably on the hard at the boat club. I've heard that the hull is somewhat similar to th...

Boat was a 2000 (20 years old), still has original coal tar coating to this day. When he bought it, someone had painted over the coal tar with an unk...

Re: Seacoat Sea-speed bottom paint

Not looking for speed, just easy cleaning, less frequent painting and fuel efficiency I suppose. This is supposedly a 10 year paint and so far looks like material cost would be similar to Interlux 2009E + Trilux 33. Their barrier coat may even be less expensive and engineered for aluminum also. I li...

Re: Engine, genny, A/C flushing

Descaling aside for a moment (I never did that so don' t have expertise) - you may want to periodically close the intakes and run fresh water via your dock hose thru all the strainers for a few minutes. That should keep them pretty free from river silt Good idea. I hope to install a flush valve to ...

Engine, genny, A/C flushing

What do you flush with? and not that... lol We dock on a river off of the Ohio that has a lot of mucky/silty/clay in it during rainy periods. I need to flush my twin 454 fresh water cooled engines and Kohler genny. What product and method would you recommend? I flushed my A/C systems with fresh wate...

Re: 28 on the way to Uruguay

Well the boat finally arrived in Montevideo Uruguay last week. The owner had challenges coordinating the transportation. He sent me a picture of it unloading. No pictures on the water yet.
