Aren't summer evenings great?

Seem to be having an unusually good spell of boating weather. Just wish I was on the water rather than in the office.

Have got the singlehanded launch and recovery weighed off now I have this combination. Perfect for a quick blast before dusk.

Got to agree with you there. I'd be out if it wasn't such a hassle to launch etc.

Pontoons and berths have definate advantages!!!!

Putting the boat in and out all the time is a bit of a pain in the a*** but you do get to take it along to different places, its a bit of a trade off really.

Scott,

About to replace the chassis on mine - needs doing and galv has got to be the way forward on the beach, but concerned at all that boating time that'll be lost!

Zinc rich epoxy primer and glass flake epoxy topcoat lasts even better!!!

Just in the process of doing mine now - chassis is fine - 1987 ex Police and RNLI so ha spent quite a bit of time on the beach.

No welding needed but want it to stay that way so shot blasting back to bare metal - great fun - beats working on servers all day and night!!!

Codprawn,
I like the idea of the epoxy. Chassis is standing in garage. Was going to spend the weekend waxoylling, zinc priming and then finding the glossiest mid grey finish (so i can id any damage/leaks early). Think you may have the solution to my problem!

Please tell me more...

Ed
