Trailers / Re: Floater Bar vs Winch
« on: July 30, 2009, 04:55:40 pm »
   I've used a winch with the big ass 24ft deep v-hull (fishing boat) and love that it would pull the heavy ass boat up on to the trailer if I was not backed into the water enough. and made it easy to center boat. but with the light weight of my sleekcraft rebel I love the bar, one man load and float...  trailer is low in water so boat is always floating before I unload or load, the bar pulls her straight on trailer when I pull out of the water, too easy if you ask me.  Personal choice   ;D

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  Thanks Grumpy.   Yah, I can't wait to lean on it once I get more comfortable with it.  From the vid it looked like it was riding pretty dry huh?  May not have to run a droop???

To Droop or not to Droop?   that is always the question...  I think it would look sooooo sweet with a rooster tale!

Projects / Re: How can I tell which type of jacuzzi jet I have?
« on: June 02, 2008, 02:36:29 pm »
looks like someone made a addaptor plate from a Berk intake to a Jacuzzi pump.
If this setup works a Berkley intake loader should work... or rework the pump and put an inducer on the impellor shaft to load the pump.
Sure Josh @JBP would help you out with either.
Welcome to the weird and wounderful stuff done with jets  >:D ;D

Well the price dictates that it's pro stuff at that price  ;D
Sure it will flex well enough to keep it looking good for years of lake/river use...  I more like to always hear how they
perform under hot Arizona sun  ;) that way I know it will last a life time up here,  lol..  :sly:
So do you have a color scheme picked out for this boat's new paint job...  huh, huh, huh...  :P
Good luck with your project, sounds like you'll have a beautiful new boat soon

The light bulbs appear to be silicone,  little extra that squirted out  ;)  ;D and don't be scared, your in good hands  >:D
Think there's a flapper missing on the exhaust too :o ;D

Got yourself a fine looking boat now  ;D

just remember you can only cut polish (clean) the paint so many times before it becomes thinner, before you see
color layer underneath show through. keep it covered and out of the sun to keep it looking new, longer  ;)

and welcome to the site  :P >:D

So, I'm pulling the Glasscutters 23.5' boat home the other night, when up ahead I see an intersection and a YELLOW light.  I think hmm, do I blow the light or try and stop.  To my right I see a cop, hmm, better stop.  BUT, the big boat doesn't want to and pushes me 1/2 way into the intersection.  I looked up and wave to the cop, he shock his head, waved back and drove off.
I thought you used the King Ranch truck to tow  :sly:    not the 4cyl miata   >:D...    glad it wasn't me   ;D

So, here's the beginning of the pump internals, wear ring was previously mis-installed and looks like a little "rock turned lathe action" between the impeller and the suction.  Made this a new ventilated impeller.

What pump is it? and what tricks you got up your sleeve? :-\

Can you rattle can over fiberglass and resin(dry).....just a thought I am having

Yes  ;D

Yes. Sand it first.

Just remember to wipe up the sand dust and keep your hands off the area your going to paint (latex gloves work  ;D) your
hands have oils and oil keeps paint from sticking...   though in a engine compartment...   no worries  ;D

Gelcoat / Paint / Fireberglass Repair / Re: Wet Sanded
« on: April 08, 2008, 10:04:08 am »
Looking good so far...  but just a small tip...
The idea behind wet sanding is to run water as you sand...   'just a little' to flush away the paint (paper lasts longer)
But all in all...  dipping the sandpaper or splashing the boat will work too  ;D

She's going to look real good...   ;)

I would not sand blast aluminum!  :o too easy to make peeks and valleys in the aluminum that will oxidize later on and make it
look worse faster, plus you will need to sand to make it smooth again. Best is paint striper if your going to remove the paint... 
spray on, scrape off... toxic stuff so delute it if your going to flush it down the drain  ::) LOTS!...   fish die easy from that stuff
(humans too  ;D) anyways...  if you sand, remember one thing. Aluminum contains oils in the metal...  you need to clean it with
Methyl hydrate before you apply primer. A zink rich primer is best...  or an etching primer for aluminum. Then top coat with paint,
I would use a durable paint (urethane), but if you don't have spray equipment, your left to a rattle can  :( should still look good.
