Re: Topside paint

For future reference for others, it only takes about 3 gallons from the water line and up, hull and cabin.

Re: Removing flying bridge teak toe rails

I would try the multi tool/Fein tool/oscillating tool/whatever you want to call it. Mine came with a blunt smooth scraping tool that would probably do the trick. If you don't have one in your box yet you need to get one. I am very very happy with my Menards model.

Re: Classic 42 chairs

PM me on what you are thinking you want for them. I'm blowing through the cash reserves on the rebuild but we sure would like some additional seating.

Pics have to be small to upload. I downloaded GIMP to export and reduce the the size.

Re: Rotted rub rail

It was by the vents, the scupper holes, everywhere. One section about 1 1/2 feet long was missing. Found it all when I finally got the wrap off. The PO beat the crap out of the rail. He had it full of putty in about 10 places. I spoke with one of the PO slip mates, they were slipped on the river and...

Re: Rotted rub rail

Yes, I am going to scarf in sections. The worst is in the straighter portions aft. I don't want to try and steam bend. The wood boat people have suggest yellow cedar and locust as possible good wood choices.

Rotted rub rail

Going to have to replace sections of the rub rail on my 1972 42 woodie. There is a lot of rot and previous epoxy putty patches. Suggestions on wood and technique?

Re: New problem for me - fuel tanks

Do you really need 400 gallons? My thought is much smaller plastic tanks and create new storage base.

Re: copper tube

Ok,yes, looks like the tube is for inside condensation drain and it is starboard and port. So the channel for the side Windows and the channel for the back window are one above the other. And then hook up to this tune that comes out the side? How is that routing done? Does one track drain to the oth...

Re: Mechanical system to raise forward-hinged mast

Seems like the boom needs to come into play. Not sure if it is above or below the hinge in this application. Can it get used as a gin pole if above? Or if below with the boom lashed down seems like the pulley system used to raise it could then be used to lower the mast for at lease the first portion.

Re: copper tube

OK, so I gave it a quick look and it seemed way to far away from the rear fixed window. Then I wondered about the inside slot for the side windows as it appeared to line up pretty good for that but thought that was just dumb! The drain for the side windows is the weep hole in the outside groove wher...

Re: copper tube

I will check that out tonight. May explain the rot under that back window. I assumed it came from water pooling in the pocket created by that side wing and not draining off. That window does not open to I didn't think about it having any kind of drain.
