I guess it depends on how they are fixed /what into.....The pacific has a hardwood (teak) plynth which you screw into (and through)..... Just wanted to make sure it was properly sealed from water ingress..... But then I have gone a bit bananas with sealing every hole and cut everywhere....My hands have been permanently covered in Sika and Epoxy since last year

The rubbing strake which runs the length of the boat is bolted on using threaded sleeves moulded into the glass....We put sika in these when we replaced them, but there wasn't any in when we removed it.....so I guess it isn't def necessary.....Sorry I can't give a definitive yay or nay.....

Beautiful job so far and thanks for the info. I'm looking forward to see ing more pictures as you progress.

I know Willards have no wood, so I might be ok there...but there was some sikaflex on the skirt at the holes of the new (for me) tubes. I'm torn because the US Navy quite obviously put some sika in each but I'd rather not undo, restretch, rebolt all that I've done...it's been a pain so far!

Sorry to derail your thread!

And a couple of shots of the Yanmar 6LY2a STP before it goes back in.... The 'feet' haven't been painted (yet) in the pic.....

It's a big old lump.....

I want to spray /maintain it with a light oil (WD40 type?) to keep the surface rust at bay.....What do people use /whats recommended? Esp. the Turbos on these seem to rust up quickly from what i have seen.....

I'm planning to get some absorbant matting for beneath it.....is this the best stuff to use /a good idea (Inboards are new to me).....Thanks

Oh, and some more livestock shots too

I use some stuff called "Shield" comes in 5 litre cans. Stick it in one of those little spray bottles like you use for brake cleaner. Leave for couple of hours to dry and it leaves a nice waxy film over everything.

Quick google isn't producing the goods, next time I'm up the shed I'll get the manufacturers name.

ps cheep as chips

Quicksilver Corrosion Guard, the Evinrude equivalent or Waxoyl work very well. Don't go spraying up the turbo though if it gets really hot!

I'd be interested in the 'shield' manufacturer name too.
