Anode advice

I have removed my anodes to clean up and reinstall. I would like some opinions regarding their condition. The rudder has a small corrosion spot at the top corner. I'm going the grind that spot and paint in with 2000E. My keel and trim tabs look good to me. The following are pictures of the trim tab ...

1984 360 RAW Water Pump

I believe that my water pump was rebuilt about 4 years ago by the previous owner. I have the check the paperwork in the boat to confirm when but I know it was done. How frequently should these be rebuilt? Thought I might add one more thing to my list for this year. Is it a Sherwood pump? Where can I...

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

I looked into the "keel guard" products. I was concerned about it bending & wrapping around with our sharp deep keels. All the installations that I saw were on fiberglass like hulls.

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

I figured the 2000E wasn't super-magic-hardcoat paint. I got a dinghy last year to get back & forth to the islands so that I would scrap the hull. This year we have a sea-doo also. We'll anchor out. :)

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

I've found that I have bare aluminum showing about 18" along the bow keel. This could be from me pulling into a sandy beach area a couple of times last season. If I sand this area and paint it with 3 or 4 coats of Interlux's Interprotect 2000E, will this paint act as a tough barrier or "ke...

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

This is the bow keel after power washing. I may try some hull cleaner for the white paint above the bottom paint line.

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

Here is the stern (thruster & rudder) after powerwashing. I'm going to removed the anode, clean and remount. I'm going to clean up the rudder and possibly paint with 2002E. The thruster had antifouling paint on it also but the powerwashing took most of it off.

Re: Hull Preparation & Painting

John, Thanks for posting. It looks like you may be missing the 12" anodes that get bolted to the trim tabs. On my M, those seem to be the ones that wear away fastest. The trim tabs have anodes on the top of the tab behind the lip - can't seen them in the picture. I don't have pics showing the ...

Re: Boat airb&b on Put-in-Bay
