Cheers for that info.Gives me food
for thought.The blasting system I am considering hiring has a dead man's handle which means it dumps air as soon as you let go for safety
reasons.Help will be at hand by a few family
and friends-unwillingly of course
.Amazing what kind of info you can store up on family
and friends that they didnt think anyone knew about !!!
A quiet word in their ear and their yours.
All's fair in love and yacht building they say.
I am undecided how to go with this but as I can hire the blasting unit for $500 for 5 days and I figure with the compressor
I can get a lend of the cost savings will help me pay for the other things.
Expensive cost isn't it.? But then again it's the bones of the boat being protected.
I'm a plumber by trade
and they reckon we're expensive.Maybe should have been a sandblaster.?
The paint options are really interesting to consider, so thanks.
Thanks for the link.
Looking at the transom it looks exactly the same shape as mine.Still need to check this out.
I'll post a few photos as I go and thanks for the support.
Note: Noticed that the add on the link for the Adams
yacht indicated the hull
was 5mm and the top side was also 5mm.
As I have decided to completely lop the old pilothouse and crappy deck
off and completely rebuild
a more flowing superstructure can someone advise the engineering side of this to me.I have 15 sheets
of 3mx 1.5 m 5mm sheets
at hand.Would love to use the 5mm for the decks but assumed this would make it top heavy and not in standing with normal principle.Thought I would have to stick with 3 mm as a rule
,but with 15 sheets at hand would love to be able to use them as I got the lot for $1200 which was like winning Lotto.
I am really humbled by the advice and support given so please accept my sincere thanks.Hope I can repay the favour somehow down the line.
Thank you all so much
