Re: Bottom paint dilema

Thank you for the perspective...
One other question, is "soda blasting" a common or good type of blasting to use on Marinettes? Could there be issues with this media?

Re: Bottom paint dilema

Bill, I understand ablative bottom paint. I apologize if I didn't make that clear. The barrier coat (as I call it) that is coming off is what would normally be the 2 part epoxy Interprotect 2000E (which I used on my 28). The issue is not the ablative Seahawk that the seller used. I'm aware that abla...

Re: Bottom paint dilema

I am sure that the paint or preparation was did not work right. The seller paid someone to soda blast it and then painted it himself. Now I need to handle fixing this. The seller has been great and is planning to paint the bottom as part of the purchase agreement (along with other items). My concern...

Bottom paint dilema

I am in the process of purchasing a 39. The hull (waterline down) was 'soda-blasted' down to the bare aluminum about 2 years ago. It was painted with a barrier coat and Seahawk ablative paint. With this extremely important item being done, I was very interested in the boat. There are many other upda...

Re: re wiring DC

I don't know the origin or accuracy of this - but I found it a while back. It might have come from someone here.
Maybe it will help.

Re: Dual 30 amp shore power

Carl - really nice work. In the Marinette that I am buying, the amp meter is not connected to anything. What should it be connected to in order to measure the amps? Is there a shunt involved? I assume that one side goes to the power and the other to the load? Is that correct? Non-electrical here...

Re: Need a strut

I think that I read somewhere that Pluckebaum in Louisville made them. Probably not cheap but they sure know the boats.
