Re: Bay Bridge Swim 2019

I just got an email saying that the Bay Bridge Swim has been cancelled for 2020. We were looking forward to this, but I guess it would be hard to do all the planning with social distancing.

Re: Covid caution for Maryland boaters

Our boat is in Maryland and our marina has closed except for emergency access. That is less of an issue than Maryland requiring us to quarantine for 14 days if we enter the state. Guess all our spring boat projects have become summer ones... I thought it was quite interesting that Maryland's governo...

Re: Prop strut backing plates

For oak, I would use West Systems 105/205 epoxy on all sides of the backing plates, including inside the bolt holes.

Re: Trojan F32 buyers advice

In the 4th photo from your dropbox, it looks like the fuel line on the right side is leaking below the valve. Not a hard thing to fix, but with a gas boat, it needs to be done ASAP. The only thing I saw that got my attention other than that is the oil in the bilge. Did it accumulate over a long time...

Re: ACT Paint color

PCA Gold is currently $150/gal at West Marine through March 29.

Their CPP bottom paint is buy on/get one free at $129/gal, so you are getting a gallon for $65!

Re: Prop strut backing plates

Well done! You were moving right along to get that done in 6 hours.

And thanks for posting the results here. If we keep doing that, this site will continue to be extremely valuable for those who have to do the same job later.

Re: Prop strut backing plates

Another option is G10 fiberglass sheets. A bit more expensive but won't ever rot.

Re: Tips for reinstalling removable cabin roof on a 36' Tricabin

In similar situations where I have had to put a long amount of sealant on, I have applied the sealant and just before installing, I have run the tip of the sealer container over the sealant to break up the skin that has formed while I was applying it. Its better to have two people applying the seala...

The compressor and hose was probably for an air horn.

Re: 36 tri-cabin fuel tanks

Rhino, you may have already learned this, but Beacon Marine can supply the original documentation package for your boat that has lots of great info on how it left the factory, including the wiring diagrams. It is well worth the money.

Re: Sanitary hose replacement fun

Trident Sani Shield Heavy Wall and Raritan Sani/Flex are also excellent hoses. I have the Trident on our boat and it has lived up to its reputation.

Re: Instructions on how to rebuild a Hynautic K-19 steering cyl

If needed I bet the o-rings could be matched up and that's what fails most the time Teleflex tech support was kind enough to give me the specs on each part in the kit. The O-rings are available except for the scarf cut Teflon rings and they told me that in a pinch, they could probably come up with ...
