Besides all the regular boat stuff to do I have to replace the shift cable.  First step complete, I got the new one.  Went to the local Yammy dealer and he told me the Yammy cables are junk. At this point I have to agree. Cool

Do you have a winter crabbing project for this year?

Mine is to outfit my pontoon boat with a propstick so I can run trotlines this year.
I would like to see that a pontoon boat running a trotline. Beings I never seen it before!  I like pontoon boats very much because of the room on them. I am sure you will get r done it shouldnt be difficult.  I found that you can run a trotline just about off of anykind of boat. I take you have a lower platform or something where you would  be able to dip the crabs from and not have to reach to far.

Looking for suggestions on the best way to paint the bottom of my aluminum boat.  Already have all the pain removed to bare metal.  I realize that I can not paint til spring.  Is it primer first, bottom paint 2nd, then some kind of clear coat?Huh? Undecided

I'd consider starting with a coat of Gluvitz to seal it up.    1 gallon was a little more than I needed for my 16 foot Jon and I tried to put it on liberally especially around the rivets.  I used primer on the shiney metal parts.  I applied my paint by brush cause a paint gun was not available - even rolled some of it.  It's held on pretty good for three seasons now.

Got a G3 aluminum boat which doesnt have rivets, everything is welded.  But appreciate the input and hope I could get three years out of it.  I keep it in the water all summer so trying to avoid them barnicles if I can. I will look into that stuff you were refering to.  Thanks!

Supposedly, the normal copper/based anti-fouling bottom paints will react with and corrode aluminum. Find a tin/based paint made for aluminum and follow their directions for the best results.

For aluminum you need a self etching primer for the paint to stick to the aluminum. Then a good hard barier coat followed by a bottom paint that will not have a galvonic reaction with the aluminun. Most bottom paint has copper or other metalic toxins in it to keep off the barnicles but copper has a galvonic reaction with aluminum and it will eat holes in your aluminum bottom. They do make bottom paints that are safe for aluminum and that is what you need to get...Charlie

I think I will do it the way you have desribed.  I wouldnt be able to catch crabs with holes in my boat.  I appreciate the input from you and the other suggestions.  Glad I found this site especially because of a hard headed no it all like myself.  Thanks Charlie

Looks like my chances of getting my project out on the water took a step in the right direction.  I have a really old tee nee trailer that had a busted shock. I gave it them a good soak of wd-40 and "nuts off" and was able to get them loose.  Gonna put some new ones on this weekend.  Still a lot of work to do but if I can get out on the water I'll be running lines right next to Craig's.

Where did you spray  " nuts off"?  Don't let your wife talk you into stuff like that.
