Post by jvanhees »

After about 3 hours of grinding/drilling with wire brushes, I have the bottom done. I still need to hit each rivet again with a cup brush to be safe... This was zero fun :) but hey it's almost over...just need to do the sides yet and it's on to primer. My HF grinder didn't make it through the night ...surprise! Shoulda paid the extra 10 bucks for the warranty...

You burnt your grinder up :shock: What brand was is ? They should stand behide it if you had just bought it .. Also I found out you only need a light coat of self etching primer . Don't put it on to heavy It's pretty gritty. I'd love to come up there fishing But ive got to many other trips plan for now . Going up to Lake Mich Salmon fishin next month . Crappies r startig to bit here . :fishing: :mrgreen:

Just got off the phone with Jerry at Fasco Epoxies (steel flex), what a great dude. VERY helpful. =D>

No need for primer. I just need to have the areas welded that need welding, and order the SF, then I will be almost done on the bottom. Going to replace some rivets and leak test once more after the welds.. but before SF for any significant leaks.

$46/gallon plus $8 colorant for the basic steelflex I am doing.

I finished up wirebrushing thursday, and now the boat has some oxidation? all over it...not sure if I have to polish it all up again before I SF, but it is a coat of crap over the aluminum now...is that a big deal?

Well, just waiting for my welder still...to have a good night to seal er up [-o<


I may just start working on my trailer in the meantime. Thinking of renting a sand blaster for hte rusty frame...or may just rough it up and paint it.


While waiting for new tires at Wallyworld today, I spent too much money on fishing/boating equipment. Picked up some transom tie downs, some bearing caps, and other stuff for the garage/fishing this weekend.

Guilty also.... I graze too much when I am there and waiting on my girlfriend. Pretty common to end up with a cart full from sporting goods :roll:

:idea: Just food for thought on your trailer, I am sucker for 4" grinder with a 60 or 120 grit flap disc. Pretty much I figure if a man has a hammer and a grinder with flap discs we can do it all!
