    Arch Paint

    Hi Greg, Check the center cover plate under the arch as there should be a sticker with the paint color number. My arch was made by J&K and they said the paint used is a PPG product and to contact them. PPG told me the paint is a color used on fleet vehicles and only available in large quantities. What I did was take my cover plate to a NAPA store and have them computer match the color. I repainted the arch myself and it came out good but if I had to do over would remove the arch and have a professional do the painting.

    Launching ramp at PIttsburg, PA Anything?

    There is a public Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission launch ramp about a mile down the Ohio river from the point. Its called Kilbuck Access. The PFBC has interactive maps on their website for all of PA showing the ramps. Link to Kilbuck... https://naturalatlas.com/boat-launches/kilbuck-2129550

    Installing new bilge pump discharge port

    When I did my extra thru-hull it was located right next to two others so I spaced it so it would match the others. I then made sure nothing on the inside was in the way. The outside was taped off and using a hole saw, started the hole till the pilot bit came thru the inside of the hull. Then from the inside I finished drilling the hole. My hull was cored and about 1" shick so needed to keep the hull from crushing when tightening the new fitting. Used a allen wrench in the drill, ate out a 1/2 inch of the core material. I used Waterweld epoxy to replace the core material and after the Waterweld was solid, re-drilled the hole. The thru-hull was then installed with 3M 4200 in case it ever needed to be removed

    1992 chaparral resource question

    Here you go drew...<br /><br /><a data-cke-saved-href="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/Scrimshaw/167.jpg" href="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/Scrimshaw/167.jpg">http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/Scrimshaw/167.jpg</a><br /><br />She was a good boat for the 5 years we owned her. Basiclly a Sig 24 before they changed the badging and nice for day trips. Problem was she was to small for over nights and we wanted something bigger. Started looking and found a sweet deal on a Cruisers Inc. 280CXi in Annapolis MD and had her shipped to Pittsburgh. We are happy with our choice but I still lurk here to see whats up.<br /><br /><a data-cke-saved-href="http://s18.photobucket.com/user/Scrimshaw/media/Launch03_zps03d57fe0.jpg.html" href="http://s18.photobucket.com/user/Scrimshaw/media/Launch03_zps03d57fe0.jpg.html"><img data-cke-saved-src="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/Scrimshaw/Launch03_zps03d57fe0.jpg" src="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/Scrimshaw/Launch03_zps03d57fe0.jpg" /></a>

    Aft cabin water leak - Sig260

    We had the exact same problem with aft cabin water. Every time it rained we had water drip down the port wall and soak the floor. After 3 years of sealing everything I could think of and not correcting the problem I checked the last thing it could be. The rub rail. When I pulled it I discovered one of the previous owners had removed it and driled new holes to reinstal it but they never filled the old holes. I marked all the rivits on the rail before I driled them out then cleaned the old holes and sealed them up. I filled each rivit hole with sealer right before I put the new rivit in. This past summer the boat was dry as a bone and we had ALOT of rain here. Sorry to say we sold our Chap this fall and went to the dark side with Professor48 (Hy) and bought a Cruisers 280 CXi but still like to visit this site. You may not have unfilled holes under your rub rail but in 13 years those rivits can get loose and leek. Might be something to look into and a good spring project. Good luck! Pappy
