    SEM Marine Vinyl Coating

    Cool. When you said deep, I just thought the worst. I have some rope burns on one side of my sunpad, below the edge of the deck, that are down to the burlap. Haven't done anything to them as they are only visible when the sunpad is lifted.

    How do we clean up spammers?

    Well, I guess I could use some essay writing help.

  5. Denny, how often do you treat that teak? Daily? Man, that looks good.

    Is it down to the burlap looking backing?

    Apparently the forum had to be shut down and cleaned.

    If it's wore down to the backing, the coating will just cover the backing. I think it will eventually crack and wear off.
  10. Wingnut, was I right about the years? I have found several different year spans on the net, what I posted above seemed to be the most consistent.
  11. I think cool fuel 2 ended in 04. From what I have found out is the 05 to 07 cool fuel 3s were the problem ones with the paint.

    Beach Reboarding Ladder (Bow)

    I wonder if the ladder extends far enough down to get into the water for access.

    Glad you got it sorted out. Where do you usually boat? Probably mentioned it before, but this is a busy forum and I am not getting any younger.

    I'm Outa Here...

    Not commenting here about tariffs and global economics here, which I seriously don't know anything about , but the Aussie guy had only complained about getting hit with high shipping costs and the exchange rate. Isn't the exchange rate the AUS $ vs. the US $. If our dollar is worth more, that's where I understood that his loss was. Right now AUS Dollar is worth 71 cents US. As far as shipping goes, US to Australia? Can't imagine what those rates are. Anyway, does any of this have to do with tariffs? Not being a smart a$$ or debate this or anything, I'm just a dumb pipefitter, it's just a question. I complain about the cost of genuine parts and shipping to my home, and I'm in the middle of the whole darn country! I blame UPS and Fed Ex.

    Can this trailer be modified?

    You will only gain 12 to 18 inches with a removable or swing away tongue.

    Engines -- on a 2004 220 ssi

    MPI is 260 HP. Have the same set up on my 210. About 300 pounds lighter than the 220. Smart Tabs help it with planing and bowrise.

    Engines -- on a 2004 220 ssi

    Kind of a bummer. Hopefully the 5.0 is the 260-270 HP version. Won't be a speed demon for sure but will pull tubes and boards. May need some tabs for bowrise and planing with a load.

    Did you find out if the 220 has a Duoprop or Bravo 3? BTW, red is better, anyway.

    Time for bellows?

    I think you are OK. My shift cable bellows cracked at 11 years old and I think the PO stored it with the drive up. My old boat that my brother now owns lasted 19 years, shift cable bellows cracked on it, too.

    Holy crap! Watching that had to make you feel so helpless.

    What product/s to use to remove oxidation?

    I used Buff Magic followed by Pro Polish, bought in a kit together. Turned my pink boat back to red.
  23. So, we get the most snow that we have had in years, just under a foot. Boat is stored outside, Sharkskin cover with pole to hold the center up. Pole may not have been the best thing. Yep, snow is heavy. Of course, this was taken after I cleared the snow. Sharkskin apparently not rated for a foot of snow. Also, if anyone is considering it, Sharkskin gets a bit brittle in cold temps. Had some snow in the cockpit, scooped it out the best I could. Scooped what was in my bench seat storage area into the bilge. Got in there because I remove the seat bottoms when stored. You know how when you are boat shopping for a used boat and you see a boat that makes you cringe? That's how I felt looking at mine. The bow area was OK. I had a pole up there, too, but I also had my snap on Sunbrella cover underneath. Needless to say, that is my temporary fix for the cockpit, until I get a new Sunbrella cover this time. It's just going to have to stay like this for another 6 weeks or so. Spring cleanup is going to be a fun one this year.
