Zinc chromate on bare spots, 2 coats of pre-kote, first coat of Brightside so far and pretty happy with the results.

I started with 3 inch roller and 1" foam brush.  I'd recommend a wide foam brush... 4" maybe?  Someone took pity on me and gave me two.  Made a world of difference.  I'll switch to a wider roller for the next coat.  I think I could do a good job of I had it to do again!

 Very nice job. Looks great, kudos.

Change into the recommended  Dayco top cog belt will also cut down on heat where and dust

Finally got to the boat. Spring is here :clap
Installed new Bracket after machining it down to give the belt more room.
Hopefully this will help with belt slipping and changing.

Ron : that was more or less part of the question, do I really need more than factory?  I don't think so but, I lack the experience of the members of this site so, I ask so I learn fewer things the hard way  :D  I kinda thought it be for roller furling main but even then, 10:1?   THanks for your insight.

Ron,
I meant replacing everything between the flywheel & prop cotter pin.  Replacing the damper, tranny, coupling, shaft, stuffing box, cutlass & prop.  I was thinking that if I did the lifelines myself I might use swageless fittings.

I wonder why they don't show p.u as an option?
Do you have any idea what the warehouse sale price will be?

Just a FYI, it looks like that stove may not be stocked in CT for pick up - that option doesn't exist, just truck ship --- which makes me think that direct drop ship via truck ($$) is the only option.

Hmm, they had two of them when I went down and checked them out a couple of weeks ago.

Don't think so? How would you slide the hatch sideways to take apart?

Yeah if there's no sideways leeway, the slide-aways won't work.

Other ideas - a poor-(wo)man's take-apart hinge, is to remove the pin from any utility hinge, overdrill the two leaves 1/64", and insert a clevis, spring-loaded, or ball-lock pin, or (very poor(wo)man's) - a machine screw/acorn nut.





If what's being supported isn't very heavy, a barrel bolt will also work as a take-apart hinge.

SWEET, Noah. Nice looking.

Suncor, Perco, and others also have take-apart hinges, some chrome, some stainless.
Sea Dog makes chrome and stainless short-arm and long-arm take aparts - $20 a pop. I have something similar on my fold-down T&H cockpit table so it's easy to take below out of the Wx.
