Re: 1979 F28 Wood Interior

Lance F28, we should probably make sure you are aware that Cetol is an easy to apply varnish replacement, whereas Murphy Oil Soap is a cleaner that is usually followed with some type of furniture oil. We use Cetol on our teak cockpit combing, swim platform and bow pulpit. It is a very good product t...

Re: 1979 F28 Wood Interior

Another vote for Murphy's Oil Soap and lemon oil. Works great on our interior wood.

Re: WayWeGo Repairs and Improvements

No change on the windlass, Just the rode and anchor.

I think it is a powerwinch with a rope only gypsy.

New Anchor and Rode

The anchor that came with our boat was a Danforth high tensile 20lb anchor, which is a pretty good match for a lunch hook, but not what I wanted for overnight use. After some research, I decided on a few anchors that would make me happy and waited for one of them to go on sale. I ended up buying two...

Re: F32 sliding door lock

That is quite different from the typical patio door type latch on our boat and other F boats I have seen. When you have a chance, I would like to see what it looks like, especially since it sounds like a more secure locking system.

Re: Bay Bridge Boat Show Tickets

Wow, that was fast -- we have a winner by text and I will be forwarding them very soon.

This is a fun in-the-water show that is our favorite. They usually have a free dinner on the first night of the show and we have enjoyed some great food and entertainment after a day of looking at boats.

My wife and I were planning on going to the Bay Bridge Boat Show on April 27-29 on Kent Island, MD, but our plans have changed and we no longer need our tickets. If anyone here would like two one-day tickets, please let me know and I will be glad to send them to you. The first one to contact me will...

Re: Winter Tarp Questions

Another year has gone by and it is time for an update. A few weeks ago, we had a major wind storm with gusts up to 70mph. It was one of the worst storms I have ever been in because of the length of the storm, the high sustained winds coupled with even higher gusts. Our house was without electricity ...

Re: Shore power public service announcement

Yes, that is the unfortunate problem with poor or corroded connections -- they don't trip a breaker. They do however, create lots of heat and cause fires. Sure am glad you caught this one in time! A good article on the subject: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0o5axe1vsm99atk/cbm052017%20shore%20power%20bu...

Re: Engine sound deadening....

I am also interested in sound deadening options. The 40 year old insulation on our boat is falling apart and it is time to rip it all out and replace with something more current.

Something that insulates the cabin from engine heat is also a big consideration for us.

Re: ACT Paint color

Today only, West Marine has a $50 off sale on some of their store brand bottom paints. PCA Gold is $159, but some of the lower priced paints are also $50 off, which makes them a great deal.

Re: Galvanized Tank Installation/ Aluminum

Bob, I really appreciate the extra effort you are taking to bring technical information from Facebook discussions over to this forum! It is so much easier to find information here rather than digging through Facebook looking for something you think you saw a year ago.
