Boating today.....

Okay....no "actual" boating, this is more of a "from the boatyard today". Santa brought a new Camera...

Looks like we might splash soon.

She is looking good! Are you all running with one 3 blade prop and one 4 blade prop?

Greetings,
Hey, it's one of those trailing props that generates electricity while you cruise. Now which one (the 3 blade or the 4 blade) is the driving prop and which is the driven prop. The world wonders.....

I think the 4 blade is the stern thruster

Ah so ...

I thought it was the trailing prop that drove the pump that filled the mast-top water pressure tank.

Seriously, I am confused. The 3 blade prop picture seems to be taken from a single screw boat based on hull form above. 4 blade looks to be a twin screw boat. Are we SURE Skinny Dippin' even exists? Maybe they really own a bayliner!

Tom, that's the lightest color bottom paint I recall seeing. Is it a primer, or the final coat? Any reason you chose the color?

Al - we're pretty sure that is the primer. There was the faring compound, and then supposedly 3 coats of SeaHawk barrier coat, then black Trinidad paint. But that can't be the Seahawk, they put it on the running gear. Can it? Would they Seahawk the running gear? Tom is calling first thing tomorrow morning to ask. There are a few places we are not happy with the faring compound work and would like that revisited before they move forward. And whatever that gray coat is, it's covering the zinc locations.....very odd.

Thanks Jennifer! It's the blue sky that makes it look so good. It was cold yesterday, but the sun was shining and the sky was about as blue as it gets.

sure...some of the 2 part barrier coats are touted as great metal primers...
