Antifoul on Mahe

Rozzie

How many liters do I need to do two coats and more along the waterline?
Answer: We used 5.6781 Liters (1-1/2 Gallons) to paint one full coat on the hulls and two coats at the waterline and leading edges

Is it necessary to sand, and if so would a wet sanding be the go? What grit?
Answer: Make sure you use a filtered face mask, but dry sanding is the way most do it because you can go right to painting when the sanding is done. We used 80 grit paper which worked well

If we didn't sand, and put primer where the white spots are, would that be enough?
Answer: Should always sand, even if just lightly with 100 grit or else the paint will bubble off after a few months in those areaís


Im thinking water blast, sand (wet) with 80 grit, and then put primer on where there are some hull marks showing through then paint. Also use a different paint on sail drives. (No copper)

I'm thinking it's ok to paint the rubber cowling at the top of the sail drive yes/No?
Answer: Yes, paint the rubber with 2 coats of bottom paint. Tape off the sail drive to prevent any bottom paint from getting on the sail drives.


Also, the zincs have some coral growth on them, very small. Is it good enough to wire brush them or do they need to be replaced each time. There is no erosion on them.
Answer: Yes, wire brush them if they still look good. Replace them when they get to 50%.
If you PropSpeed your zinks will last a lot longer

Sail Drives and Props

Also Take the props off and if possible use Propspeed or at least clean and grease all the moving areas.

Prop and Sail Drive painting

For the Prop use PropSpeed 200ml (.26qt.) Kit for $199 at Westmarine
-------------------------------------------------
For Aluminum Sail Drives use Interlux Primocon Metal Primer 1qt is $23 (Defender)

Factory or Previously painted Sail Drive: Sand with 80 grit paper. Wipe down with Interlux 216 Special Thinner to remove sanding residue.

Apply a minimum of 3 coats of Interlux Primocon Metal Primer.

Do not sand between coats of Primocon or between last coat of primer and first coat of antifouling. There is no maximum overcoating time between coats of Primocon or between the last coat of primer and the first coat of antifouling paint

Product, Ambient & Substrate temperature should be minimum 50 F and maximum 85 F.

Interlux Trilux 33 Antifouling Bottom Paint 1 qt is $60 (Defender)
New tin-free antifouling formulated to provide safe, effective protection for aluminum outdrives & outboards. At least 3 coats should be applied.

I agree with everything you said, except in warmer climates you need 2 coats antifouling and a 3rd at the water line (3 gallons).

Mahe Winter Cover

Mahes,

Here’s a look at how a Mahe looks with a winter cover on.
It cost $2,100. Comes in two pieces and installs in three hours.

With this cover you can leave your bimini and main sail with lazy bag on.

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

All:

I've read and understand that the Mahe will bear her weight while resting on her keels on the hard. Good, as my marina wants to haul her out and sit her on her keels, on a skid (flatbed) while maintenance work is done. Question: Is the boat balanced enough to stay level or will it tip fore or aft once on her keels? I can empty the water tanks, chain, and bow lockers if necessary.

Bob

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

What I did was always take care for some balance. I would not fill up both water tank with an empty diesel tank; or the reverse. We would avoid walking all the way forward on the boat until wooden posts were placed under bulkheads (see the Fountaine Pajot CD-ROM, or knock and listen to spot the bulkheads).
Then you are fine in my experience.

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

I have used the copper-coat bottom paint and am very pleased with it. No growth the first year in the Caribbean. It does require special attention to put on. The yacht seems to be faster than its peers. But, many things come into play for that. Also added 3 layers of barrier coat when the bottom work was done. The copper-coat adds 5 layers of epoxy so that should result in a blister free bottom. I highly recommend paradise cove if on the Bay. They can lift a Helia. I have a video posted that should show up in a google search.

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

Georgetown Yacht Basin on the Sassafras river is only half a day's sail from Annapolis and they specialize in Cats; had my Eleuthera there last winter, they are careful and knowledgeable, a beautiful setting and all the workers are extra pleasant.

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

I was haul out at Georgetown and will not go back! They charge me $25.00 a foot to haul out and quoted $50.00 a foot for buffing and waxing. At Ocean Marine in Portmouth, Va. I paid $8.00 a foot for haul out. Every time I talk to them they tried to push more work at two to three what every one else charges.

Re: Haul Out, On The Hard, Antifoul & Winter Storage

Your right 29' is a problem. I don't want to sound like a sales man but I have had better work done at Ocean Marine and they can handle boats 235' long. I don't know how wide. I would guess at 50'. There Web page is oceanmarinellc.com They are on the ICW 1/2 mi. South of mile 0.
