If I need to sand the black goop smooth after application, I would think that might mess up new varnish. But, I'm new at this. What do the rest of you guys think about the proper order for stripping...

teak sealant goop question

I think I'm finally ready to try to spruce up this poor hatch over my aft cabin. I thought that before I heat gun the old varnish/paint/whatever, I would replace all the black goop between the teak...

Do you ever need to use some sort of pump and pressure gauge to eventually get the accumulator tank back to the proper pressure, or is this an "install it and forget it" kind of device?

accumulator tank size

I just got a new Jabsco 5 GPM fresh water pump, and I would like to add an accumulator tank, but I'm not sure which size I should get. They seem to vary from 0.7 quarts to 2 gallons. My boat is a 38'...

I'll follow up on your ideas. Since I will be living aboard, I will need the usual services (electricity, water, showers, pump-out). Thanks for your feedback.

I'm looking for a cheap liveaboard marina for the first 3 months of 2020 in the Bradenton/Sarasota/Venice area. My trawler is 38'x13'x4'. Any recommendations, or should I just go through the list on...

Hi Sledge. Yea, Victoria is a pretty cool place. I was there years ago, and this might be a good opportunity for a revisit. I see you are in Brunswick. I spent last winter at Brunswick Landing Marina.

Closest Point of Approach
