I'm very impressed with the refit
work being done.
Found Leela blog pages. Great project documentation
. Added some info.
How are the rest of your projects coming?
Are there any other blog pages or sites documenting Union 36 projects & restorations? Am on several forums
, but so far the blog has been the best.
Anyone have the link for the site that posted tank measurements?
I'm interested as I'm trying to sort possible restoration
of one, although these boats are not new to me. Sailed them on SF Bay
, and up and down the coast. Still very helpful to see what solutions others have chosen, and how implemented.
By the way, I think it's well worth it, as the boat sails
very balanced, and the hull
is extremely stout. Was asked to captain
someone's 50 ft something vessel once, I said no thanks after seeing the hull flex.
schedules are rarely done as thick as these were. Understand some have had to deal with blisters
, fortunately new technology makes that easier. We caught epoxy
barrier coat blisters
, and on the grind down found mold
release still. Kept going, went into laminate, exposed any voids & faired back up with epoxy
fairing putty, then 5 coats barrier coat, and has held up well.
Appreciate the nuggets you've shared, and happy to do same, if there's anything I can add.
