EHK...Ahh no, but thanks for the pisser thought.


Voodoo.  Funny about my waterline stripe with Brightside.  Tried the roll and tip and it sucked.  By accident I just gently re-rolled the paint with foam roller until all the bubbles were gone...perfect.   Maybe that's a one part paint thing?


May not be SOP, but it worked for me. 

If you're rolling and get bubbles, keep a heat gun handy and just put a light blow over the bubbles, they'll go away.

In Topic: Replacing Cabin Side Windows- What Material?

I'm putting new windows in my pocket cruiser. The originals are from the 70's so I am looking around to see what the best replacement material would be. They are fixed, oval windows about a foot long and 6 inches tall. Would plexi-glass be best or something more like lexan? Thanks in advance.

I have an unopened tube of Sikaflex 295 UV and a can of Sika primer 209 D left from doing our ports last year.  They're yours for the cost of shipping if you'd like them.  Leroi

If you're not spraying, be sure to use some brushing reducer.  Otherwise you'll have brush marks or stipple.

Phil's Foils or whatever he's called now...CCI  ?  Not likely that you will repair it.

If they're not cracked, you can re-polish them. We did ours last year and they are crystal clear.  Had to remove them, but it wasn't a tough job.
