Re: Question regarding how to properly finish a hull

Rustoleum porch paint refreshed every 2yrs worked to protect a FL14 pretty well. But that stuff is pretty hard.

Re: Question regarding how to properly finish a hull

I think I made this console ten years ago and it has been in the sun every single day since. I used white acrylic exterior house paint. That stuff won't last 10yr on a house. I can't imagine it should be expected to last that long on a boat. If I was using "not marine specialty" paint I w...

Re: FS 18 Project boat

Do you mind posting a few pics here? Just a couple that show the exterior and interior levels of completion. Also an approximate location. Would help give folks an idea of what to expect.

Regardless, what is a letter Well. It’s one of these things… ;) a guy I know well, and rust. Here is his response: What it was supposed to say, and not as easily deciphered as yours is “did you get an amperage read”. I’ve no idea how my phone guess “letter”. Nifty technology hasn’t helped me proof ...

Did you get a letter read before and after the switch install? I find it helpful to know what the “idle state draw” will be.

Re: An article I thought you guys might enjoy on high HP motors

I “would get” closer to 20mpg if I was allowed to use my boat. Then again… I hope I’m only using it about 5min per trip.

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

There is something “wrong” with edge and sites that aren’t optimized specifically for it are the host layer. I want to say “aren’t hosted in windows” but that would start a fight I’m not interested in participating in. I recommend avoiding edge at all costs. Have you inspected the housing for roughn...
