    Bottom paint

    Ok thanks! Much easier lol!!
  2. Hey I need opinion my new old boat has bottom paint. Its chalky and if you rub it it comes off on your hands. Not all of it but it comes off is it normal or do I have to sand and start over?
  3. Made my first set. Was pretty easy made them 27 inches long. Took down to river behind the dam water probably 5 mile per hr currents. Pulled great sat a little low but just standing there .
  4. Well looking at making my own how did they work?
  5. Its mahogany that was in rough shape.. I have 3 coats of helmsman teak oil on it. Was wondering if a waterproof like Thompson's or Cabot would soak in now with the oil in it. Or a epoxy I just don't want it to get that yellow flakey like you see on some older boats
  6. I'm on coat number 3 with helmsman teak oil
  7. Hey guys I have been refinishing my wood from the boat. I am on the second coat of teak oil on them. I want to seal them so they last longer then 1 yr. Should I use a Cabot or Thompsons? Love the poly look but I don't like the extra work when water gets under it and it splits and yellows. What should I do.
  8. First coat of teak oil on after loads of sanding. Have some new electronics to install to update but almost ready for spring to get it up a running!
  9. Sick of this wheather! Waiting to get back to work on the boat. Brother got me a 24" lightbar for it to add to rocket launcher. Have my side curtains and backs to get the clear plastic redone. Bought a 10" hummingbird to upgrade 1 of the 350a
  10. Is it spring yet!! Ready to get back to work on it so I'm ready for May!
  11. I pull mine and keep in basement. Ill put charger on them a couple times during the winter.
  12. Here is the pic out of my manual for my system.
  13. And for strainer just pull the glass off and let it drain or just hope the fresh water valve?
  14. So what plugs do I need to pull? I got two on exchanger, 4 on manifolds. Do I need to pull the lower block plugs? Oil cooler u thing? And strainer is full of nontoxic? Sorry like I said I have had 250 hp outboards.new to me paying someone next year when it gets to a marina this year just want to get by.
  15. Ok going to drain it sat just worried about the plugs that haven't been pulled out in a long time. Previous years were done the dump and run way but he kept it in a semi heated garage. So those bolts haven't moved in the 10 yrs he owned it.
  16. Here is another one.. It has the heat exchanger on it checked the antifreeze in the resivour its good to -35. But I don't know if it is ok in freshwater before strainer has a hose attachment the original owner ran a funnel to and ran 5 gallons of non toxic antifreeze through while motor was running then shut off. Didn't pull any of the plugs. It was coming out the mufflers. Am I fine for winter? Been reading about it some people do it this way. Skimmer is full of non toxic..
  17. My brother started buffing it yesterday. Wow what a difference!! Ok so I pulled all the wood off over the winter I'm going to sand and finish.. What's a good poly that won't break down in a year?
  18. No sir! Can't wait to learn how to drive it and get used to it. Will be a little different then the 21 ft bass boat with a 250 on it. Have allot of cleaning to do and set it up the way I want. Then get it covered before it snows.
  19. Well finally got it home. Now the race before the snow. Time to access the broken or need to fix items before my first trip with it this spring. Its the 262 with the 454 crusader, t9.9 kicker with the tr1 gold autopilot.
  20. Favorite setups Got tired of getting beat up with the bass boat. Bought a 26 ft Penn want to get into leadcore and copper sets now that I have a boat that I can run more then 4 rods. Looking at for now rigging 2 coppers and 2 cores. Want to be able to use for browns and later salmon. Can I rubber band copper to a planner board? Then I can have 2 400 coppers and use it as a 100 and so on. Or do I want 300s? Same with leadcore, 10 color?
  21. I unbolted the back seat and lag bolted it to a 2x6 and mounted riggers to it and can run two dipsey rods and two riggers. No problems
