Went To The Ship Yard For Compounding And Waxing "THEN CAME"

Had my boat hauled out for detailing in early June before leaving for a stay in Florida. THEN CAME my lovely bride wanting to see the boat on land. Once seeing the condition the hull was in she said "we can not go to Florida in something looking like that. THEN CAME the detailer saying that the gel coat was in to bad of shape for compounding an waxing needs painting. After 25 gallons of Primer, Imron Paint, Interlux 2000,an anti fouling paint, which is not all applied yet, we are still high an dry. THEN CAME if we going to have it painted we will need a new swim platform, new out carpet and a number of other might as wells. THEN CAME the ship yard guy saying well since we got her up might as well do the running gear, reworked props, rudders, bearings, and what ever else was needed. I sure hope there not many more THEN CAMES before going back in the water.

All that work , and she will still look like all the rest when you get south with a big brown mustache at the bow.


I prefer to paint a boat before its Sold , not before its used and cruised

The most expensive four words in boating: " while we're at it..."

No need for that mustache by the way. Ask the yard about applying a sealer like Rejex or Awlcare then just hose her off at the end of the day. A new Imron job may not even need that.

When will you be bringing her back to David's I'd like to have a look? Are you painting topsides too or compound and wax?

Bottom line is this...if it's a boat you know, trust, and like, invest in it. Because boat buying is truly a "caveat emptor", (buyer beware) experience.

Keep on cruising!

For some reason the painter Gary with Gary's Yacht Bright wants to paint above rub rails and cockpit with boat in water, I have no problem with that. Gary is doing a GREAT job an going the extra mile to make things come out right. I was surprised that most of the hardware, rub rails, port lights are still available from the original manufacture. I think we will be at least another month, do to the fact that the swim plat form will be made and installed at the ship yard plus the many bottom coats of 2000 and anti fouling.

That is why we are doing all this work. We really enjoy the boat with all our friends and the interior works well. I also think I know the boat well because after looking at my check book it seems I must have rebuilt it. LOL

I think the reason they wanting to do the topsides on the water lies within the antifowling paint needing to be in the water.I don't quite understand why,but antifowling paint need to be in the water to prevent future issues with it.Some of these other characters can probably explain it better than I.

Went to the boat today to meet with the painter. I ask why does he paint top side with boat in water. Due to the height of the boat out of the water and being a one man company if he was to fall from that height and working from a ladder it could be all over do to injury.
