    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    @Israel Hands Sure hope it's not a poop. And also, I question the Society. Why do people take pictures of their boat with cleaning supplies scattered all about?

  3. Ahhhh, Okay. I am a Bruce fan. Haven't listened to the new album. The boss is the significant other. SWMBO. A Rumpole of the Bailey meme.

    @IStream Than You. I'll give that a try. If all else fails I can buy a tool for $14. Just want to bend them up.

    @SpongeDeckSquareFoilUnfortunately I don't have a belt sander. Would this 5 degrees cause a problem?

    Got new winch pads as well. Old ones look to have about a 5 degree angle on the top. New ones are flat. Could run into override problems with the new ones. @SloopJonB Couldn't find 1000 grit sandpaper buy I do have 0000 steel wool. Will that work?

    @SloopJonBI see there is spray and tubed white lithium grease. Should I go with the tube?

    Finally got the little bugger apart. I am doing the main winches as well. I'm very happy with the quality of these.

    Thank you, kind sir. Enjoying the new marina. Has a more relaxing feel to. All I need to do now is get the new outboard bracket mounted, drop the mast to sort out the halyards and install the Raymarine electronics and we're good to go. Interior on Zora is spot on. Have you decided on a colour?

    I talked to a rough NG friend of mine and he said the same thing. Thank you @CruiserJim

    I was thinking that that since the builder used them it would be a good idea to replicate. They are there for a reason.

    @IStream Thank you for the recommendations. @CruiserJim. The boat came with them so I thought they were necessary. Tell me more.
