Here I go with the carbide removing the bottom paint on Russlynn. Worked well with virtually no dust, big plus. Still labor intensive though a little less than the sander! Quite the work out as my buddy Hank puts it “strong like bull”Good times!!
Bottom work for Russlynn 1/9/18
Boat work in the cold!
The cold whether is a great time to tackle some of the boat work your looking to get done. Give me a call to set a plan in motion.
On the Hard Ready for Paint Work
We just put our S2 11 meter on the hard ready for new hull paint and a new bottom down to the gel coat. I’m first going to remove the layers of bottom paint down to the gel coat. This process should take a few days of diligent work with the help of my good friend Hank! Once the gel coat is exposed I’ll let it dry out over a few months then apply three barrier coats followed by a few coats of long lasting bottom paint. While the bottom is drying out I’ll proceed to sand and repaint the hull and cleanup all the metal underneath and painting.
If you are looking to have similar work done I would be happy to meet with you and discuss. With low overhead I’m quite affordable producing high quality results with high quality products.

Organic Linseed Oil Soap!
I’ve just made the first batch of organic linseed oil soap. The soap came out great and feels very nice on the skin. This soap is made with organic cold pressed flaxseed oil grown here in the US! I plan on producing the organic version once I fully test its quality of use, so far so good! Organic flaxseed oil is very good for your skin due to it having Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Using the soap is a great way to topically introduce it. I really like to shave with it leaving my skin feeling very smooth and clean!
