Finally made it to the boat!

So we bought the boat in February and just finally were able to move from KY to Washington state a couple days ago.
So happy to finally be starting our new adventures. Alot of work to do before we take off on trips.
Need to find someone who can scrap the bottom of the boat.. any ideas? We are in Port Orchard, Wa?

Re: Finally made it to the boat!

Welcome to the Sound! Enjoy your boat-

I'm sure if you ask around there'll be plenty of recommendations for service providers.

Thanks for the recommendation.. if we don't end up buying a dry suit and doing it ourselves, I'll get them a holler.

Re: Finally made it to the boat!

T&C Diving in Port Orchard are a great company to deal with- 360-471-1724

Last month we were anchored in Port Orchard and needed our running gear inspected and cleaned. We knew it was probably fouled with crustaceans but also suspected the cutlass bearing and needed this squared away before our next passage.

All the divers were busy and wouldn't even make an appointment a month out, but T&C was nice enough to put us on a waiting list because we were able to go the the PO guest dock to meet them on short notice. A week later we got a call and a two diver team showed up exactly on time. 30 minutes later our running gear was clean and cutlass bearing passed inspection. They provided great advice for us visiting cruisers on protecting our running gear here in PNW, recommending Prop Speed as the best stuff they've seen in real world use. We were also impressed and surprised by the very reasonable cost, we would have paid 2-3X what they charged!

They impressed me so much I had to give them a review- https://goo.gl/maps/oqC4RjCBSCzXmbUF7

Clean the bottom in or out of the water? Local boatyard can scap it out of the water but that sounds pretty severe vs. cleaning it with a soft brush in the water by a local diver. Suggest checking with you marina neighbors on who they use to clean their boat bottom.

That's all I do here.
Just scrape when needed, no damn paint!
I don't see the sense in it.
I'm a cruiser, so an extra .5 knots whoopee.

Your going to be able to afford your wetsuit with 1 seasons savings scraping it yourself.
Go 7mm with a hood here as the water is cold.

I draw 4 feet, so it's pretty easy.

Congratulations! I hope you meant scrape instead of scrap!

To funny... I ran into their drivers in the parking lot. Seemed great. Thanks for the personal recommendation.

Ha... doesn't surprise me that I had a typo. Comes from being exhausted just getting on the road and then driving to many hours in a day, plus lack of sleep. But we are here... makes me happy every day.

Re: Finally made it to the boat!

I have used T&C for about five years now. They have done a good job for me. I like that they usually have a team of guys doing the work. I’m usually there and get good feed back on what is going on

Yeah we would use them, but they are backed up for a month or two. Really need it done sooner then that.
