Re: Barnacle removal without scraping

They would beach the vessel and haul the masts down with blocks and tackles.

Re: Barnacle removal without scraping

Hauled down my old 33 footer to scrub her. Worked ok. Used two anchors and a big tree. I used a two to one tackle from the masthead to the tree to pull her down about 30 degrees so I could scrub the bottom easily from a dinghy. Worked well, but a lot of strain on the mast, and the anchors.

Seems like a snorkel or hookah would be less strain unless you needed to change a through hull or something?

Re: Barnacle removal without scraping

I was hoping to get my Searunner 31er bottom soda blasted. The only estimate available was $1800.00. Seems high so I used a dustless sander and sanded both amas. Took me 12 hours total. They're done now but the pic is a before and after during the operation.

Hard work so I decided to paint strip the center hull and then sand to make the sanding a bit easier. The stripping took 6 hours but I still have about 4 hours of sanding now. I put plastic over the stripper and laid it on thick. It did a pretty good job getting the soft ablative off but still need to sand to a sound hard base before I apply a clear epoxy primer.

Re: Barnacle removal without scraping

I used On & Off Liquid Hull & Bottom Cleaner and it seemed to soften them up! I found this company Boat Bottom Pro which has really helped me with removing my bottom paint and barnacles, etc.

That was the only alternative back in the 50's and 60's, my friend. Of course, today, very few would think that commercial fishing and beachcombing were worthwhile professions. Better to be a make up salesman or computer geek than something a real man would take on! Phil

Re: Barnacle removal without scraping

Pollution along with overfishing, has caused the fishing decline.
And I'm very sure "Real Men" are computer geeks and cosmeticians!
Your statements are Very 50 & 60ish.
Not modern day at all.
Those attitudes are what continues to cause problems, friend.😉

My apologies but you know sh*t about what and who caused the fishing decline... I was out there and know first hand exactly what the primary cause was. But you're right, I'm certainly not modern day nor do I wish to be. It is folks like you who have destroyed far more than you have fixed.

Apologizes, are cheap.
We now are trying to clean up the mess left by the short sighted.
EPA
You could at least support it.

I would be quite interested to hear your take on what caused the decline in fish stocks.
