If taking that approach need to do it every month in our part of the world.

Got the old Egg on the hard around 11. Removed the rotten swim step brackets. Also got the exhaust rings off and all cleaned up so we can fix that little leak. Props are polished, need to clean shafts next. Started in on sanding, but my favorite sander let me down around two hours into it.
I should have the bottom sanded by the end of tomorrow!

That our use the boat. It is difficult for stuff to grow if the boat never sits still long enough.

Got everything sanded down. Put on a coat of Primocon and the first coat of bottom paint. Fair bit of work as the port side needed to be stripped down to glass for the first foot down. I thinks it looks dam good if I do say so for myself.

Now my next problem is how to seal this up.
The old way was Oakum and boat life.

About a 1/4 of the exhaust port sits in the water. I'm thinking Sikaflex?

Yes a bronze ring, currently being used as a templet for a stainless one.
But its just a ring, fits tight around the pipe, screws to the transom.

I think that I would put something like oakum in first to stop the caulking from falling into the gap. Then Sika would be good.

I would be apprehensive about filling the large gap with sealant like Sikaflex.

Since it's fiberglass, I would fill the space between pipe and hull with epoxy filler. Then bond the pipe to the hull with fiberglass fabric and epoxy.

Install the trim ring.


The other way would be to cut the fiberglass tube shorter, install a flanged exhaust outlet and connect the tube to the outlet with a short length of exhaust hose.

We move every few days and often anchor in strong current areas.
Use commercial grade antifouling
Still have a coral reef on her when pulled out

Completely foreign to us over here. We are all about the Interlux and Pettit products. Maybe we are using consumer grade stuff? I will say the Pettit Trinidad Pro is good stuff but it is not cheap. And we usually rate our paints in percentage of concetration and not parts per liter. I think Pettit Trinidad is 60% Copper....
