  1. Sad news from Weymouth

    Good advice not to move any pads fitted by the boatyard team. Over many years I have looked at this at work. In my personal experience two coats rolled on over the majority of the hull gives a decent coating. when lifted prior to launching I brush on paint in the pad areas which gives a similar thickness. even though this sometimes only dries for a few minutes I do not see and extra barnacles or other growth on these areas when the boat comes out next. So no need to take risks moving supports

    1. Tigerfish - Steve + Terry + Graham 2. Reel Magic - Dave + 3. Joint Venture - Adam + Ian + Alun + Rob (i have taken the liberty to add the usual A-Team) 4. Madness - Martin - Dean - Tony 5. Sweet Chariot - Oli + Nick + 6. Kingfisher - Chris (looking at 5th - 8th May due to commitments) 7. Alfresco - Charlie. I will check if the boys want to come if not will be looking for crew. looks like most of the usual boats are keen to go again.
  15. A new project named Blah ( could get messy)

    no tell tale flow can be as simple as dried salt in the tell tale connector, lift the cover off and disconnect the pipe inside or simply poke a bit of wire in from outside when the engines running and connected to a hose or afloat.. Happens all the time here at work.
