#209 Hot!

it is hot it’s 107 degrees heat index
that’s 92 but the humidity is like 60% it’s like super really hard to work in
the hot hot humid weather so I’m just drenched with sweat and I’m gonna go
jump find some water to jump into it is hot it’s 107 degrees heat index
it’s 92 but the humidity is like 60% it’s like super really hard to work in
the hot hot humid weather so I’m just drenched with sweat and I’m gonna go
jump find some water to jump into well I notice there’s a lot of fuel in this
water so maybe I just need to go take the first of three cold showers for the
day well it’s getting super hot now and I’m
really starting to sweat so I’m gonna go in and take a shower in the little boat
yard shower room thingy let’s go take a look here’s the big boat but speaking of
heels look at this heel good the size of this thing I guess if you go around in
the sand with a kill like that you were like deeply buried I’m wonder what the scientific purpose
of the key like that is anyway hey Apollo are you doing bleh so now
I’ve been on the underwater primer of everything the let itself has been
sanded down and where it was exposed I put some metallic primer over that to
keep it from corroding one side grounded down to metal and then I put on this
primer this primer goes over all of the hard epoxy now to seal our youth in all
up good in preparation for the coats of a blade of pain that go over that so
this is how I treat my keel and get ready now to get the blade of paint on everybody well it’s a little bit cooler
today and also I got up at early this morning about 6:00 a.m. and had my
coffee and breakfast and so I’m gonna get to work early so I can get more of
the stuff done because I’ll tell yesterday was really just it was 107
heat index I just couldn’t get the work done and get back to work now it’s a lot
cooler today so it’s gonna be good so when I pull the boat out of the water
these white barnacles are like concrete I mean they are really really hard and
they must be unique to the Pamlico Sound area the Neuse River where we had the
boat each geographic area has different kind
of underwater dynamics related to you know grass growing on the hall or
barnacles of different types and you really have to find out what’s the best
treatment for your particular region so I did a little bit of research and you
know I tried to scrape the barnacles off which I you know did to an extent but it
was really difficult to get off someone said use muriatic acid another person
said try some lime out which i got i know every region is different as i said
but those of you who have sailboats or motor boats for that matter what product
to use to get the unique growths off of your boat I know if you’re a day seller
you probably take it out once a year or maybe if you’re have a trailer you take
it out more than that you can see it but especially those of you who are living
boards where maybe the boats the water for two years straight or even three
years before you take it out what product do you use in your unique
location please leave a comment would like to learn more about how to keep
these things off the boat as much as possible now we also realize that you
know about as a boat and that’s been an age-old reality of what’s going on on
the hall under the water and how it affects many things concerning boating so I am getting a cleaner but my
question is how do I keep it clean because these barnacles grew pretty
quick I mean I’d say probably in about 90 days well I got rained out here so I’m gonna
go back and see Amy she called me she said she wants me to come pick her up
and bring her back down the boat

    DUDE! You have to prep first. Why didn't you sand down the keel joint.

    I use a wire brush on the Makita disc grinder to clean barnacles from the strut and prop. Takes about 3 minutes. Recoat with Rustoleum spray galvanized ($8 /can at Home depot). Good for six months.

    2:55 This type of keel allows a smaller draft with enough weight to keep the center of gravity low.

    What yard are you in ? How long will you be there? Ty for the Vid

    I would just use a brass wire wheel and a drill to get the barnacles off, once the prop is all shiny I would wipe down with acetone and then apply prop coat barnacle barrier on the prop, shaft and skew. West marine carries it
