    SAILBOAT 35' 1983 CHEOY LEE (PERRY) 35

    So, perhaps on the topic, late yesterday afternoon, this boat came limping in to the shipyard-- two guys from Anchorage had bought the boat in NY and were headed to Canada to stage their trip through the NW passage. They had a broken gooseneck fitting and the upper swivel on their furler was hanging up on the foil (at the joints). So, several of us helped out--- but I'm curious if the crowd here can verify the boat-- Bob, are you there?-- (I think) they said it was a Cheoy Lee 36. SailboatData says that is a Luders design but then the 35 under discussion here is Perry and I'm curious-- is this a 35 or a 36?

    What is all that bright light in the sky? (you arranged THAT for Mother's Day in the PNW? impressive)

    Another Awlgrip touch-up question

    JGBrown, Thanks (!) for such a detailed response. Really appreciated. Good advice to go see the pro. I'll stop by his shop next time I'm in that area. I don't think mine ever had a clearcoat. And the chalkiness I refer too is pretty even all over (except for the spots he fixed which have newer paint on them and so are not as faded as the bulk of the hull). So I got that going for me... I suspect this is a technique issue. As in, I don't know what I'm doing. Thanks again.

    Another Awlgrip touch-up question

    Hmmm. I saw a bit of hull color on the pad but I was being very gentle and suspect your #1 statement applies. Surprised by your "can't polish this paint" statement-- I know nothing about this, but several years ago a real pro did some touch up work on my boat and he buffed the whole hull and got his spot repairs to blend in seamlessly with the older paint. I didn't stay on top of it and am now trying to (I thought) make it look like he had it looking (he had recommended the Presta Ultra to me when I asked him for a recommendation for a polish)... If I'm chasing my tail here, I'll just stop (thanks) and think about repainting the entire thing. Next year....

    Another Awlgrip touch-up question

    Can you elaborate on the water part? When exactly do you use "lots of water"? (asked by someone who just tried to buff out some chalky Imron and had the chalk return within 24 hours.... But I used exactly zero water). Thanks.

    Interesting! But what do you do about the plug/connector end, is there a source for adapters? I just acquired a new MFD and based upon your comment thought I'd try it with the existing transducer but the plug isn't right....

    Google translate isn't working so well either....

    Bob Dylan - The SECOND best lyricist?

    +1 The problem is, no one knows about Sixto Rodriguez. Well, "Searching for Sugarman" helped to spread the word a bit. To second another mention here, I'll quote Steve Earle: "Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the world and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that," said Steve Earle. (I saw Earle just two nights ago in a 200 seat theater one block from my place. Saw Townes in Juneau, Alaska not too long before he died but he was too wasted to put on a decent show)

    PNM

    Hah! I did NOT count the 16' skiff-in-progress that someone dropped off in front of my shop a few years ago. I'm hoping it will rot away so I won't be tempted to finish it (and put it in my lineal footage total...)
