Re: Boat zincs

I have a full set of zincs taken from the boat. Is it possible to "clean them up to shiny" once tarnished. They look reasonably good, with minor pitting. I would love to put the $$$ towards other tasks if possible. Kind thanks in advance for any advice.

"Drymesh" brand, under cushion matting is really a good product...along with some active ventilation(solar powered if you like).
As for odor issue, not sure. Best of luck.

Re: Aft deck replacement questions

I'm an architect and spec the versatex products all the time....it is really good stuff and I can't see any reason why you could not use on deck...especially if you plan on overlaying a vinyl/rubber/or other material either in sheet form, or canvas style material. I would not be afraid to screw from...

Does anyone know if there are factory AC lights or retrofits in the v-berth overhead of my 73 28 FB express. I have three of them. I'll send pic if I can get a file small enough (UGH! could use a tip here too)
