If you don't want the hassle for posting a pic once in a while, just e-mail it to another member or a Mod and they'll post it for you. I've seen that done on many forums, especially if someone way up North(AK or Yukon) is still on dial-up.
If you'd like you can e-mail me a pic and I'll happily post it for you.
Nasty pop up ads pay the bills for websites like that allowing them to provide a free service. I'd rather not sit through a timeshare sales meeting for free ginsu knives and I'm thinking you wouldn't either. If you run into that again, even though its super annoying just ignore it instead of clicking on it(it's pretty tough to ignore though). I clicked the link and saw the page, then closed the tab in firefox(I never click on the ad itself).
Junk mail companies meet door to door salesmen Internet Style there!
I'd also like to see your White Sailboat. I keep going back to look at the All White
"Vivante" There's something I really like about it....but there's something about an
with the Big Black Stripe too.
REGARDING THE STRIPES:
I've been playing at waxing/polishing but haven't actually done the whole boat yet, just testing sections. This year's inaugural cruise was in 25kt winds with spray soaking the topsides for 2.5hrs. The salt stains on the 'coon stripe were horrible. I've been reading over and over about Eric experience with New Glass 2, especially the part about wet sanding. I read SteveK's posts about wet sanding too and gave it a try instead of just rubbing compound on sections of the black. 800 grit and the garden hose cuts the oxidation out like nobody's business, but drys dull. After reading that Steve K went to 2000 on one boat I got some 1200 and 2000 to follow up the 800. Looks black but dull. I've tested using rubbing compound after the different grits and they all look better than rubbing compound alone.
The section aft of the Starboard(head) window wet sanded to 2000 then Turtle wax liquid rubbing compound then 2 coats of Nu Finish is so black and shiny I want to quit my job so I can polish my boat back to brand new! Seriously though I will not be wet sanding my entire hull and topside 3 times then cutting then polishing repeatedly. What I have learned with a used truck and so far with my boat is the end result is only as good as the prep work. My plan is to wet sand with 800 then do the stripes to 2000, then use New Glass 2. I f I ever get it done I'll post some before and after pictures
The section from the head vent to the chain plate screws was also done the same way.
