Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

Linda,

Yawl seem to take your lounging seriously! I'm surprised you don't have any floaty chairs to go with your under-deck table. Maybe a couple of bar stools?

Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

Is this Moreton Bay or somewhere down in Vic?

Re: Do Cat Owners Actually Beach Their Cats ?

Nice photo of Love Child, always thought that was a very pretty boat. Which is bloody hard to do in a small cat.

Would it be worth the effort and the $1000?

If you are anywhere near Florida I would contact an airboat source. Airboats are often designed to travel short distances (generally under 100 meters) on land. In fact airboats are frequently run over berms, often times with gravel roads on them from one water source to another.

In general there are two methods used to protect the bottom of the airboat hull. A stainless steel pan is placed under the hull or a coat of special resin is used.

YMMV

Thanks for that. She was a better boat after I did the mod's IMHO.

For what its worth on my last boat I beached her regularly and never had any wear whatsoever.

I did wear antifoul on the tips of the boards and rudders, but only because they dragged through sand on approach . It never removed the highbuild primer.

I was going to cast an Epoxy - Ilminite shoe on the new build while the hull was upside down, but freaked out at the weight of a 20 litre bucketful and still have it sitting under the house.
