Welcome aboard sentientcj (although if you bought a boat I'm not so sure you're sentient lol).
Atlantic RTOFS Nowcasts/Forecasts (One of many NOAA/NWS sites, such as Prediction Loops, etc, you'll just have to poke around.)
hint.fm/wind (Not much good for our purposes but the wind
map is pretty to look at. I'd like to use it for a screensaver.)
Lots of other stuff out there.
Not familiar with spray on rubber but I can't envision using it anywhere, not in the engine
room for sure (flammability issues, getting it somewhere you don't want it). Never heard of a boatyard not allowing fiberglass
work. Even so they probably don't care about small interior repairs
if that's what you're talking about, or is it on the outside? Sure it can't be fixed by a little touch up paint
You didn't ask but unless you're planning on living up north I'd paint
that boat white before I splashed it. Best advice in this entire post.
Most boats in Boot Key Harbor are on moorings. You will need to contact the Boot Key Harbormaster or the City of Marathon Harbormaster or some such.There is not much space left in that harbor where anchoring
Pumping that oil
on the ground will probably get you jailed in the Keys. It's a National Marine
Sanctuary and they are serious as a heart attack about pollution.
Pump the bilge oil into containers and find somebody who will accept it for proper disposal. Most boatyards
will, if yours is weird about that ask around, maybe try a gas station if there are any left down there that aren't convenience stores.
That yard doesn't allow bottom painting? That means you're going to have to go somewhere else and haul out
again to paint the bottom. If this boat's been on the hill for two years have you had it surveyed? Replaced impellers, zincs, filters, etc? Batteries good? I would probably have the fuel
Welcome to the carefree yachting life.
