Re: Aft berth, stowage, ventilation

Hi Trswem! Air circulation is a really good idea! Memory foam is open cell so air “slowly” moves in and out of the foam when somebody/thing compresses or decompresses the foam. So moisture definitively will get into the foam The surface area of memory foam is HUGE so the entering moisture will wick ...

Re: Boat Insurance?

Hi Dianderson Generally most reputable insurance companies will have a process to allow for a relevant time extension for completion of ongoing repairs. Disasters don’t look at policy renewal dates so insurance companies are used to the aspect that a repair can/will overlap a policy renewal date…. I...

Re: Boat Insurance?

Was complete completion a time expiration thing or something that just didn’t get do with the repairs.
Why not just get the repairs finished for the remaining 1% ?

Re: Cracks in non-skid and my plan

Hi Trswem Q: Have you figured out “why” the non-skid areas are flaking? What causing it to delaminate? It your substructure is compromised the flaking is an early warning of an underlying problem…. Just wouldn’t want you to mask over a problem with a little fix vs. a problem that later requires a bi...

Re: Blocking my 26M up for first coat of bottom paint

Hi Shane Anthony! With the wet blasting setups at most boatyards the answer is yes. They have equipment with the capability to mix the appropriate amount of grit material into the water pressure stream. In the hands of an experienced and capable operator it does a more through and comprehensive job ...

Re: US Eclipse - April 8, 2024

Nice videos Kmclemore! 👍 Basic physics on grand display! Neat stuff! I read somewhere that the Ancient Egyptians had a rudimentary means of calculating when an eclipse could be expected. Both solar and lunar eclipses! Pretty cool that people were able to ‘do the math’ based off of general observatio...

Hi Kmclemore! How did it go with the eclipse? We couldn’t make it up to Lake Champlain. Bummer! :cry: We are hoping that it went well even though it appeared cold in the weather app forecasts. Due to our changing plans we’re staying in SC till the end of June or July before heading North this year. ...

Hi Kurz! Great to hear that Coppercoat is working for you in a lake environment. It my understanding though that it needs salt water for the chemical reaction to work properly.

Re: Blocking my 26M up for first coat of bottom paint

Hi Shane Anthony! If you go with standard boat stands they must be placed on a firm non penetrating surface so they don’t settle into the ground. Especially if the ground EVER get wet… like when it rains….. :o :? Standard boat stands are required to be chained together side to side so they don’t spr...
