    Default Re: Shout out for some help - Burnham on Crouch

    In spite of what they are telling you my coppercoat failed the first time. They blamed the fact that I had done it in cold (warmer than you will get this weekend) & there was a lot of condensation
    They supplied another lot of coppercoat at a reduced cost & I had to do it all over again (still does not work)
    This season I have to do the keel again due to rust coming through
    NO WAY would I consider doing even a small amount in the current temperature conditions
    As for only 2 of you- no problem. Do what I did both times. Leave the keel & rudder & points where the supports go. Then do those another day

    I also found that 3% thinners helps a lot. The area that I applied thinners ( the keel) works better than the hull where I did not use thinners The keel was done in warmer weather & works better so it may be a factor as swell

    Brushing is not successful. You need loads of rollers.

    But in any event - do not do it yet
    It is all down to the fact that my wife does not understand me !!

    Thanks for all the advice above.

    We abandoned this a couple of weeks ago with the deteriorating forecast - but hoping to do this tomorrow on Saturday. Seems once again I've been left a person short - again I know this is cheeky and last minute notice but if anyone in the Burnham on Crouch area is free tomorrow (around 11am for 3-4 hrs) I'd really value some help. Can pay a small amount and stand you a fish supper and beers at the end.

    Here's hoping!

    Thanks,

    Phil

    Only time will tell if it went well! No primer on the hull - just the protocol as recommended (blasted and then sanded). Keel sanded back and primed and then coppercoated.

    The real test will be November when she comes out.
