"My keel was sand blasted 15 years ago and epoxy coated. Last spring when it was hauled I noticed the last of the epoxy had come off. Im not sure what to do now. Swantown won't allow sand blasting and a needle gun would take along…"
Hey, Tim. Glad you checked in. It would be great to see your 42 and maybe have a coffee? Anyway, Where in N. Portland Harbor is she? Mine is at RCYC on walk 1. The 62 Chinook 34 is in St. Helens. This is really an awkward site, don't you think? worse than Facebook. Feel free to contact me at my email: email@example.com
Hey Gang, I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
