You can't beat this. You will never beat this. Money wins. Every. Fucking. Time. Way to go, winners. You really played an even field - you must be so proud.

Shouldn't you sue us now? 

 

 

 

Boo fucking hoo.

 

And what, you've just come to this conclusion?

Well stop the fucking the press.

What does it rate?

It's a Hunter, 0.001?


In Topic: Damned this boot looks big ... from underwater

01 February 2016 - 01:18 AM

Context:

40' boat

warm Mexico waters

67 year old non-diver

free diving to clean/scare off barneys etc etc.

 

Given above, what areas best to concentrate on?

 

I assume leading edges and rudder (on a skeg) first priority, prop second.  After that or do I need to take even deeper breaths?

 

 

 

To be perfectly honest either get someone else to it or learn to dive.

That age, in that climate you risk heat exhaustion and heart attack.


In Topic: Removing bottom paint

Wet sanding with coarse 3M pads on pole sanders and a team " muscle heads" works too.
 

 

Works well for ablatives. 


In Topic: Racing Bottom DIY application

again, if you are rolling on, you do not need to tip bottom paint or the barrier coat. it's a wasted step. hi nap just wastes paint. makes coats thicker, which you don't want.

 

low nap. 4 coats interprotect. no tip. apply each coat in short succession. sand lightly. apply bottom paint.

 

or, follow the directions the paint comes with. don't make up your own procedure.

 

1+. 

VC Offshore is great, until you have to remove it. 

Make sure the crew have 'nothing else on' that weekend.
