Now we're redoing the thru hulls.

They are not installed backwards. I used the thru hulls to clamp the backer blocks while the epoxy hardened.

Proud Mary,
What coating did you use on the rudder and prop? 20" prop?

Velox plus anti-fouling paint kit, primer and paint. We chose white over black so that it would be easier to see growth or lack of growth when in the water.

What are you going to put in between the new fuel tank and the plywood shelf?

I planned for a 1/2" air gap by having the replacement tank built a 1/2" shorter but I haven't selected a material. Any recommendations?

Someting like starboard that does not absorb water.

That's a good idea. I may slide a piece in between my tanks. Just emptied the port. Cleaned out while it's light seems to be the time. I have a sheet of 1/8 fiberglass. Would seem to be an excellent use for it

Regarding Velox. Just applied the third coat. Will have to compare notes after the summer. Usually have to scrape barnacles by mid August.

PM,
Does it promote electrolysis? Or does the primer isolate the "combatants" and minimize corrosion?

Would it sweat or promote the tank to sweat. Water is water.

You don't want to just slide a sheet under the tank. You should have strips and put them under the tank in an orientation that will allow any water that gets under the tank to drain out. You want to stop water from being in contact with the tank. The idea of strips is that they will let water run out and let air in to dry out any water under the tank. I have seen some people use neoprene and glue it to the tank with something like 5200 so that water can't get in between the strip and the tank which would cause corrosion. I don't know if neoprene would support the weight of your tank without crushing which would negate the reason for putting it in there. Starboard is hard to caulk because most caulk won't stick to it. I think that there are some caulks that do stick to starboard out there now.

Wonder if the tank is structurally sound to have supported only in a couple areas? Anyone have their tank elevated on stringers?

You don't really put it on stringers. You cut some strips about 2" -3" wide and space them about 8-10" apart over the length of the tank.
