Convinced I should launch SPRAY despite feelings of a poorly executed sealing job, there was a feeling of relief when she stayed dry upon her initial splash. For the next three hours the repaired sections stayed bone dry. Eventually I drifted off to a light sleep but easily woke up while shifting positions. With a bit of hesitation I checked the propellar shaft area and noted only a teensy bit of water entered during the night. Replacing the properllar shaft, by a workman at the yard, was…Continue

Well, well, well, for two days I have been practicing how to screw. Now, don't get the wrong idea.

A few weeks ago I bought a 2.5 Nissan outboard from a guy in the mislands. I will use it on my rib, 12 ft 1964 Crestliner Super Fisherman and also my Howler 8 ft hard dinghy. It runs really nice so lets hope it keeps it up with maintenance.

Well after cleaning the yard today I decided it was time to seal up my Seaworthy Rib, Been putting it off and have boat fever again.

Oh well lets see if the sealant will repair the few leaks I have in the Rib.
