Boat Lift

Post by FLGSHP7 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 2:25 pm

I finally got my boat into the lift for bottom paint yesterday. I decided to use SeaHawk Systems Shark Skin Epoxy with copper additive. I'll also be replacing m y broken keel cable at this time.

When I was under the boat yesterday I noticed water dripping from one of the plugs for the swing keel access. Do these need to be rebedded? Is it okay for them to drip water? I assume it just goes into the ballast tank?

Here are some pics:

If anyone has used SeaHawk Systems bottom paints let me know what you think.

I used Sea Hawk products for the bottom. Barrier paint and antifouling paint ....
